Thought I’d do some window shopping at my local craigslist tonight. I’m not looking for anything specific, but I’ve found some great stuff that way!
Here’s an 1950s milk crate for $10. Perfect for rolled up towels in the bathroom, logs by the fireplace, or magazines. (Wouldn’t it be cool if the milkman still came to your door every morning?)
A working vintage fan, also $10. It’s strange how little regard they had for safety back in the day. A kid could stick his whole hand in there, and don’t think he wouldn’t consider it!
Somebody is selling a houseful of these old doors for $30 each. I love old doors; I have three in my basement waiting to be transformed. But the question here is why are they taking these doors out? Look at the ceramic knobs and the fabulous trim! Let’s hope they aren’t going to replace them with some cheap white 6-panels!
Somebody’s already done the work for you on this set of tables; at least it looks to me like a makeover. They want $75 for the set…not a steal, but fairly reasonable.
This dresser is free. FA-REEEE! I don’t have use or space for another dresser or I’d snatch it up in a heartbeat. It would be really cute painted.
And here are my latest craigslist purchases. Warning: bad flash photography ahead.
This old metal box is on wheels. A lady was clearing out her dad’s house after he had gone into a retirement home, and was selling it for $10.
I put it under the entertainment armoire to hold dvds and stuff. It has a handle that makes it very easy to wheel it out and back. In real life I don’t have a spotlight shining on the armoire, so the box doesn’t really show up as that lighter brown; it just kind of blends with the wood. Which also looks different in low light.
While I was there, she had several other things to sell, and I ended up with this other metal case for an extra $5. I don’t currently have anything in it, so its job is just to look cool.
