Craigslist Finds

We spent Friday night driving around Raleigh picking up my Craigslist goodies. 


Vintage Campaign dresser- I had been looking at this for months and thought it would get scooped up pretty quickly. Doug and I agreed that we had no where to put it . Friday I decided to turn it into a vanity and replace my old bed side table. 


#2 Retro chairs- I cannot wait to reupholster these chairs. I got four of  them for $25 each. That sure beats the alternative. I cannot wait to get some fun fabric on them. 

Doug is still really sad about the chairs but when they look like this...
well, he will probably still be sad but i will be happy:)

  9. Are you finding this campaign furniture off raleigh CL?? I can't ever seem to find anything good....of course I only look once every two months..that could be the reason. I am in the market for awesome bedside tables, chippendale-esque chairs, and maybe that's it. Be on the Lookout!
