I have been a busy bee, painting a huge three piece entertainment center with bookshelves, gathering supplies to make a custom hall bench cushion, and I’m about to put nailhead trim on a cool chest of drawers for a client. Fun times!
Let’s get to the good stuff out there just waiting for a new lease on life.
And I could go on. Be forewarned…there are approximately 2.6 million dining room sets listed right now so if you decide to look through them in search of the perfect one, pack a sandwich.
And the three I listed here are UNDER $100 for the set – chairs included. It’s almost laughable. Why anyone would buy a brand new dining table and chairs (unless you really can’t find a size or style you like) is just beyond me.
2. This gorgeous cane chair. listed for $75 Drool…
I kind of don’t even mind the upholstery, although you’d have to check it out in person. A coat of paint on all that gorgeous wood and cane and BAM you have this:
And there’s a surprise on the back.
This woman did a similar surprise shot of color on the back, too.
3. This settee is so charming and classic. I love a settee. For some reason it sounds so much more exotic than a loveseat.
They’re only asking $40! And there’s even better news if you go and read the listing because the seller has TWO matching pieces.
A pair of settees facing each other makes for a fantastic living room if you ask me (granted these are much fancier than the one for sale, but you get the idea.)
I love that they have a smaller footprint than a couch. Lots of options.
4. Someone PLEASE buy this vanity and ask me to paint it. Because wow, is it ever a stunner.
Can you imagine this in a little girl’s room? To die for!! You can’t walk into Pottery Barn Kids and find this, my friends. In my humble opinion, things like this take a room from good to truly unique and memorable. PS – Look at that headboard in the mirror….
5. This Queen sleigh bed for $60.
I love it in a gray as seen here
or in bright pink for a girls room.
That’s it for the week.
Let me know if you score any great finds. And as always, if you shop Craigslist be careful and smart!!
