Anyway, to give myself something to blog about besides school lunches (today's worked out much better, btw - and I learned that you can add 1/2 cup of steamed, pureed cauliflower to boxed mac & cheese without noticing it at all), I decided to check out the local Craigslist with an imaginary budget of $300 and see what I would buy. In this fantasy I also have a place for these things once I bought them - not much on the buy/rehab/sell front these days.
Love this super long (93 inches!) bench out of a railroad station. Would look great in one of those large entry/hallways Texas McMansions all seem to have.
The ad says they're chairs, but they look more like barstools. Either way I'm loving them.
Okay, there are a few fixer-uppers out there. This could easily bring in a profit if you paint it. Or even just relist it under the furniture section rather than the antique section.
Small pendants to classy up your bedside area or around your bathroom mirror. Do it with modern touches so it doesn't go all frou-frou.
I love the lines on this desk chair - and they're practically giving it away.
Get your Sputnik on. I don't really know if this is that great of a price or not - but it looks pretty.
They have a matched pair of these armchairs. They'd look pretty cool in my living room. They'd look pretty cool in another fabric down the line. Love the arms. Want to buy... Must resist.
I'm pretty sure someone with fabulous taste could make this chinoiserie couch a showstopper in their house. I really like the fabric - just needs to be relocated to a modernized setting. And lose the matching pillows.
If you haven't noticed, I love things in pairs. Good price - paint 'em up, of course.
A very interesting shape on this antique rocker.
Any items you'd like? And what about Design Star - are you still watching? Who are you rooting for?
