I've got a couple of house projects on the horizon that need to be done on a shoestring budget, so I've been trolling Craigslist lately. As usually happens, I keep finding stuff I don't need and not finding anything that I'm actually looking for (and also, lots and lots of garbage). Some of the highlights from the "stuff I don't need category" below; cross-listed with "things that the man you live with is 99% guaranteed to hate."
This dresser itself isn't particularly special for the price, but I'm a little bit in love with the drawer handles. Repainted in black or shiny green, this would look awesome.
I never knew I needed a brass trunk. But I do. Oh, I do.
Perhaps this one instead.
If you're in the market for a new coffee table, this set of chrome cocktail tables is perfect and CHEAP -- $25!
A crazy (but awesome) Milo Bauhmann leather lounger, anyone? (This purports to be authentic for $375, which would be a serious steal.) You need the right place and the right style for this kind of thing, but they look so cool when they're well-placed.
This gray leather nailhead chair would be great for an office.
I could fill this brass bookshelf with all kinds of crazy lady trinkets.
Someone please, please buy this darling loveseat and let me come and visit it. It's $200.
These Jenny Lind beds would be so cute in a kids' room -- like this one from Domino Magazine (which is BACK as of today!).
And finally, it wouldn't be Craigslist without some completely weird stuff. The crown jewel: let's all try not to think about what this JAIL CELL DOOR might be destined for in the future.
