wake up your wicker...


 I always see a variety of great wicker, rattan and bamboo pieces on Craigslist.
I can picture the ho-hum gold toned pieces with a fresh bold color.
It's so tempting when I' come across interesting styles...but a girl only has so
 much room, so I made up this game where I show you a listing from Craigslist and
what you could do with it!

All items were found today using the search fields:
Craigslist - Denver - Furniture - By Owner - Wicker, Bamboo or Rattan

NOW is the time to scope it out (before the temps and prices rise) if you'd like to
 include a new addition to your porch, patio, sun room, child's room or dining area.

Have fun and let me know if you snag one of these deals!

Gorgeous wicker ideas. Come share them on my Chic By You links party @ Chic By Tab. Hope to see you there.

More proof that Craigslist in the cities is way better than here! I would buy that bar cart in a second!

Ann said...

Awesome post! Please do more like this. :)

I have a wicker addiction ... I ended up having to throw a large sofa away last spring it was in horrific shape. It made me very sad! Perhaps I should pop over to Craigslist for a replacement!! xo

Those are some great finds. I did a project awhile back painting a Chinese Chippendale rattan headboard -- paint can really freshen them up and give them a new look. (You have to go get that little bar cart table! How cute!)

Andrea said...

You are so good at finding Craigslist deals. I hope someone near you snags up a few of these. Now I'm ready to break out the spray paint.

gina said...

Wow, those are some great deals!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

You know this is right up my alley! Wicker and CL, two favorites. I especially love headboards painted a bright color, so fun!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

that peacock headboard is exactly the one i painted orange for emmy's instagram display! i have another in the garage just waiting for warmer weather!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Your CL is SO much better than ours! Dying over that headboard. I tried to get one a little while back and the seller would never contact me. :( Love your beautiful examples!

SHERRY HART said...

Love....love....some painted rattan or wicker! Such a fresh look:)

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Being a former "Florida Girl" I love, love wicker...my heart skipped a beat when I saw the AD image of that gorgeous porch..love those Craig's list offerings..!

Denise Greenwood said...

Thanks for sharing Pam! That was just the reminder I needed :) I have been wanting something for our patio for a couple of years, but I really don't want to pay too much!!

Simply LKJ said...

Love wicker and rattan pieces. What a fun way to spruce them up with just a bit of color.

Cathy Wall said...

Your Craigslist is like Mecca, always the best goodies and if anyone can find them it would be you!

Rebecca said...

It's amazing what a transformation paint can make!!

sharon smith said...

I love this game! Let's play more often. You're my biggest inspiration for deals on CL. Keep posting...

Love all the wicker and I think I need to wake up mine now!

Kris @ Driven by Décor said...

Ok, this 100% confirms that your Craigslist is a zillion times better than mine. Ours has some decent stuff but it is priced about 4-6 times higher than yours! Love all of your inspiration!!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I am always on the fence about this wicker. I really like the images you displayed. I love it painted.

{Hi Sugarplum!} said...

Dude -- I have a sad old wicker table that I've never paid any mind to....but now I'm giving her the stank eye!!!

Alexa said...

Oh this is great. My mom has a lot of old wicker furniture. Passing along!

Charlotte said...

Ok, now I'm hating myself....I saw a couple of pieces of furniture I gave away to friends....wonder if they would mind if I reclaimed my giveaways?

Kristin@bliss-athome.com said...

I love wicker. It can look so good in the right space. Ahhhh! I can't believe February is almost over! In a month we will start to get outdoors...weird to think about since it is snowy and 6 degrees here...xo Kristin

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

Great ideas! It's fun to see the inspiration pics and then see what you could use to create the look! Great game!

Calypso In The Country said...

Beautiful wicker ideas - and I also love that porch with the black wicker...I wonder if I can find that porch on Craigslist!

Bethany DeVore said...

love the look! The thought of it makes me excited for spring!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

I have to say- our craigslist must really suffer compared to yours. I already knew that, but now I am SO jealous. I would be hunting every week if ours looked like this!

Ben Harrison said...

I want to thank you for sharing this post. It is not easy to find such perfectly written information on the wicker furniture.
