In an ongoing quest to reduce, reuse, recycle, I turned to Craigslist and am thrifting my way to a newly furnished ski condo. Along the way, I've figured out a few tricks of the trade when it comes to Craigslist.
Top Ten Recommendations for Craigslist Thrifting Success:
Mid-century solid wood dresser with some scratches and a strange white haze on it - $15
Two matching end tables or nightstands (as the case will be for me). Solid wood with serious water damage - $8/each.
Two mission-style maple end tables in perfect condition - $15/each
One oval-shaped mirror just begging for an oil-rubbed bronze spray paint - $10
One mystery-wood dresser with at least 5 coats of paint and only 3 knobs - $10
Stay tuned for all of the transformations and happy hunting. Send me some pics of your favorite finds from Craigslist and the Before-and-After transformations at sara(at)thehandyhausfrau(dot)com.
