I sold my first piece of re-finished furniture! The young woman who bought it was thrilled to have it and definitely head over heels for it, her boyfriend said she wanted it so bad she had been having dreams about it while she slept! Love it!
And the other plus to having sold it is that I now Have funds in my furniture 'account' to buy another piece and refinish it! And I'm hoping that the Mister now has a little more confidence in my ability to see a piece with potential and create something someone will love.
Here are some great solid pieces on my local Craigslist I'm eyeing today:
This lovely would be ideal for a corner in our living room that is bare. I've been wanting an armoire like this to store our spare pillows, throws and board games in.
It's a bit pricy at $350, but I'm sure it cost much more than that and would be worth it.
I love the look of these campaign style nightstand. It comes with a match for the other side of your bed and although they are too short to work as our bedside tables (they are 24" tall and from the floor to the top of our mattress is 31") they would be awesome for someone with a lower bed!
$60 for the pair. Not bad!
The chair above comes in a set of sixteen and are not real bentwood, but metal. Nonetheless, I think they'd look lovely reupholstered and painted a glossy black or muted mid-tone gray and put in a little cafe or bistro!
$80 for the set of 16.
How gorg is the wood grain in this tall boy? And truly, the pulls look like they would be in pretty good condition in person too.
A steal at $40.
This little guy is a bit rough around the edges and although he's got a wood veneer toping his solid wood construction, there's something about his statue and curves that are keeping me interested. According to the seller one drawer is stamped 'bible hall' while another is stamped 'casino'. How funny is that!
He's listed at $75.
Which of these do you think should be my next project?
