Latest Craigslist Find

I don't know if I've mentioned my obsession with Craigslist before; but it's true I'm a Craig Junkie. I bought several items for Con-Man's room from Craigslist (crib and dresser- $250 for both!), furnished our garage apartment for cheap, and we've sold a bunch of stuff on Craigslist too.

Well my latest find is my favorite so far. I love Mid-Century Modern Design. You may not be able to tell by looking around our house since most of what we have is family hand me downs, but slowly but surely we are updating the house to fit our taste. I've been thinking about updating the dining room lately. I was so excited to see this guy for sale the other day:

It's solid walnut, the lady got it from an estate sales years ago and was ready for a change. She sold it to me for only $30! I love the detailing-

And it's in great shape, just needs an update on the seat cushion. My plan is to try and find another chair that is similar and a set of 4 that are the same. Then upholster them in the same fabric. I'd like to find a unique table to go with them. Our table we have now only seats 4. It would be nice to have one that fit at least 6 so when we have company over people don't have to eat on the couch.

But for now it's hanging out in the corner just chillin until I find it some friends. I'm so excited about it though!

What's your favorite Craigslist find? Are you a Craigslist Junkie?

That chair is a great find. How fun it will be to go on a search for chairs to pair it with. I only just discovered Craig's List when I needed to sell some school desks. I couldn't believe how easily they sold and for what I wanted. Lisa~

You have a good eye for furniture! I am addicted to surfing craigslist, but I don't seem to have the good luck at finding treasures that some of you other ladies do!

what a beautiful chair. Please, please don't paint it. It looks like Stickley to me. If not, it is a nice Mission type. I have never seen one like it. Ann
