Happy Friday y'all! Today's Furniture Friday is all about Craigslist. As you know, I'm a big fan of thrifting, second hand and vintage furniture so Craigslist and Kijiji are my BFF's. If you aren't already addicted, I suggest you take a gander at what surprising treasures you may find. I always seem to stumble upon a piece of furniture that I would like to buy because it has so much potential. Sometimes all it needs is a fresh coat of paint, some new upholstery or different knobs to update the look. Of course I don't give into these urges to rescue these unwanted items because:
- I don't need them (yet. hehe)
- I don't have space to store them because I live in a 900 sq. ft. condo (I know, what a troubled life I have) and
- I do not want to be on the next episode of Hoarders
So, today I share with you some of my recent finds. Items that I love but cannot rescue:
Check out this chair. I don't even hate the upholstery. You could update the look by putting a bold fabric and/or by staining the wood white, black or even a bright colour.
This would be super easy to update. I would love to paint the chair white or black and replace the upholstery with a bold geometric pattern.
Wouldn't this be super cute in a kids room? Just add a nice soft cushion and hang in the corner of the room.
I love this antique dresser from the 20's. I would apply a slightly darker stain to enhance the wood grain and replace the knobs; some antique ornate ones in brass or bronze or even some clear ones would be my kinda thing.
So those are my finds. I usually restrict my budget to under $50 but I couldn't resist showing that cool hanging chair and dresser.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!
