Stalking Chattanooga Craigslist III

Sunday, October 3, 2010

  Thanks to everyone for your comments and well-wishes on my recent move.  We are in our new old house and we are slowly (or at least slower than I would like) settling in.  Thankfully I have my kitchen pretty well set up and the bedrooms are functional, so even though we may not be able to find socks that match every day, we all have a place to sleep and eat. Right after we moved in the hubby got a nasty case of the flu that came with a raging sinus infection!  I'm happy to say he is doing much better (after a round of antibiotics and steroids).  And, I finally have my internet connection up and running (yay!) .  Naturally one of the first things I did when I got back online was to check out the local Craigslist posts to see what might turn up! 



Cute little bar cart!



I know the setting is a little bordello-esque, but these mirrors are fantastic!  Wouldn't they be great above the nightstands that flank your bed? 



Wowza!  This sweet French twin bed is upholstered in champagne silk shantung and comes complete with bed rails at an unbelievable price!  





Yes the dolls are a little creepy but these are great  pink velvet wing chairs!  Remember this post about my dining room makeover that would have all the gray and coral?  These  would be perfect host and hostess chairs and they are priced at $125 for the pair!!  As my luck would have it she sold the chairs the very day I called her.  Dang!  She said they had been on Craigslist for weeks and somebody just up and bought them that morning.  Did I mention they are velvet?  Dang!



Cute French mod chair, and looks like it has diy upholstery potential.  Seller is ready to deal, it is posted every few days with a slightly lower price each time. Paint the frame black and upholster in this fabric



Flowering Branch by Braemore





Great looking chairs and there are two of them.  Lots of yummy nailheads, too. At $200 for the pair, they aren't cheap so I would offer less.  Paint the frames in high gloss white and upholster in this fabric




Love this combination so much I am going to try to put a mood board together for a room that is inspired by these chairs in this fabric.  Hope to have it for you next time!

So great to be back!  Can't wait to catch up on what's been going on with all of you, too!  Happy happy Monday!!

Thanks for letting me know about your Craigslist post - you found some great items there! I think my favourite is that bar cart....I've been a tad obsessed with finding a good one lately and I totally would have gone for this one if it was in my area.

Hello there! Oddly enough I live in Chattanooga and found your blog from If the Lampshade Fits - small world!

I wish I was as lucky as you with ye olde list of the Craig but I get demoralized pretty quickly with the slim pickings in our area. Congrats on your finds!
