As we’ve been decorating our home (or at least starting to decorate our home) we have been using Craigslist to find pieces that have a bit of character with a great price tag.
The Craigslist app has been my constant companion lately as I’ve hunted for the perfect mirror, guest room furniture, etc.
Here are our recent scores.
These vintage vinyl and chrome chairs are perfect compliments to the new modern couch. Mr. Lively wanted some leather in our space and these puppies look like baseball glove leather for a fraction of the price. We got the pair for $150.
This antique mirror was a major steal at just $40. The price was so good that the lady we bought it from couldn’t believe she priced it so low.
This will soon be mounted above our mini bar in the main room.
And this little guy has definitely stolen my heart, especially priced at $125. Though it’s not Mr. Lively’s cup of tea, he agreed to let me have it in the guest room to use as a possible future vanity or consulting station.
He is definitely cute dressed in yellow but he looks a bit too Palm Springs for my taste.
I plan to paint him white, make a new velvet cushion, and paint those drawer pulls… you guessed it, gold.
And last but not least, we have Mr. Lively’s favorite thing in the whole apartment: the patio coffee table. This cooler is from the 1920’s and is perfect for outdoor storage or actually acting as a cooler for future patio parties. At $60 he adds way more character to the space than anything we could have bought from a store.
Now I just have a one more Craigslist find to hunt down… a hallway mirror.
