I'm Going Craigslist Crazy!!

First of all, thank you all for your sweet words yesterday! It was just one of those days, and after a gym session last night and this morning, I feel much better! Just needed to vent a little and count my blessings :)
I am going crazy over looking at furniture on Craigslist! Ever since I redid my table and chairs, I just want to add some nice furniture to my name! I really don't want to have to buy things brand new when Tyler and I get married. He has a couch and a bedroom set, but I think you need a LOT more than that to make a house a "home." Maybe I'll get some surprise wedding furniture that no one is telling me about. #hopeful

These are some of the things I have found recently that I want to pull the trigger on!

How fun would this be to repaint and add cute knobs to? For $45, I might just have to pick this up when I am home at Thanksgiving!

I want this so badly!! I think it would add such a sophisticated touch to an entryway!!! $75.. Reasonable, right??
Every girl needs a china cabinet! Ah, if I ever pick out my fine china, I could actually put it in here! $300. Thoughts?
This could be SO FUN as a bar!!!!

I have a feeling the blue chest has sold, but I am going to keep my eye on these pieces as well as a few others! You know you are grown up when you get excited about furniture... Yikes!

Have a great day and stay dry and safe on the East Coast!

Ta ta,

I love that second piece, totally perfect for an entryway! And $75 seems like a steal. You'll have to share what you actually end up picking up :)

I love that china cabinet! I wouldn't have anywhere to put it...but I love it!

The china cabinet is beautiful! $300 is pretty reasonable, too! I've seen them go for much higher (as in $1,000 plus).

Oh I love that second table!!! I think $75 is reasonable for it...it looks like great quality! We were really lucky that Christopher's parents got us a bedroom set for a wedding gift! I already had living room furniture and a kitchen table that I had bought the year before. When we move to a larger place, I want to get a bigger table and a new coffee table.

Love these pieces! One day I am dying for a china cabinet! I really need to start searching craigslist...I've heard so many people find awesome things, just like you!

I have yet to brave the idea of re-doing my own furniture. But you can find some seriously amazing buys out there! And don't worry... you don't have to have a house full of furniture when you're first married :) It took us about 2 years to have the couches, beds, and tv's we wanted! The only furniture you need (at least I feel like you need) at first is a bed, a couch, and a kitchen table! It can be a tiny table but it's nice to have family dinners at a table instead of on the couch :)

Ooh I love all of this stuff! That second table is so fancy, and the china cabinet is great!
