Stalking Chattanooga Craigslist

"I believe in plenty of optimism and white paint." - Elsie de Wolfe

I can't tell you how many times I've reworked some lowly castoff furniture piece that someone decided they no longer loved.  This is such a fun way to decorate because you can really make it your own through paint, upholstery or other decorative finishes.   Craigslist is a really good resource to find these diamonds in the rough and I am sharing my picks for what I found on Craigslist in the Chattanooga area.

This is one of a set of four that the owner is selling.  They appear to be in excellent condition, are custom upholstered and neutral enough to go just about anywhere.

This traditional style dresser provides lots of storage and could easiily updated with a fresh coat of paint; or, if you are a purist, a good cleaning and some Old English!

These old steamer trunks are so versatile.  Depending on the size, you can use them as coffee tables or stack them for a practical side table.  With either option, you'll get lots of  look!

Okay, if this bed was a queen size it would be in my room right now!  It is a full size and is tres' beautiful. Priced at a couple hundred bucks, this bed is a no-brainer! The image below is the exact same bed, sold through JCPenney (the Chris Madden Collection).  The image is from their website.

Hey good looking :) ! This mirror is a steal at $32 and is solid mahogany.

These vintage club chairs have beautiful lines.  Reupholster them in neutral suede, linen or velvet and punch them up with some colorful mod pillows!

Unbelievable! This 1940's kitchen set is complete with the porcelain topped table and 4 matching chairs.  The table features a pullout drawer for your silverware.  There are more photos online, but it looks to be pristine!  And black & white will blend so easily with any color palette you want to work with!

I love oriental details of this filing cabinet.  Such a stylish way to corral your clutter!

Great weather for shopping from home in your pj's!!
