my new craigslist bamboo table :)


I was planning to reveal my latest Craigslist score when I shared some fall updates
around our house, but summer is still in full swing, it was 95 degrees yesterday.
 So, I'm giving you a sneak peek till fall decor feels appropriate. I saw this little
 gem pop up a couple weeks ago and just couldn't pass it up.
 Of course, I took it home and styled it up. I'm in love!

    

This was the Craigslist photo that caught my attention.

I always love researching my scores, it's good justification for my addiction.  
I paid $3,200.00 LESS than this one I found for sale! 

Baker Tortoise Shell Lacquered & Glass Tray Coffee Table - Removable Tray
Available on 1st Dibs here- $3,250.00 - Crazy!  


I wouldn't have dreamed I'd see this pop up, you just never know,
and that's what keeps me checking back every day.

That table is gorgeous and the price, wow!!! You find the most amazing things on CL! I am always searching for bamboo pieces but never have any luck. I love that you also had such great luck with your research, your table looks exactly the same.

CASSIE! Pam found our table!! Pam, I'm about to pass out. I've been looking for a table like that for over a year!! Well........so happy for you! It's FABULOUS!! Good thing I don't live closer to Denver, you'd have some stiff CL competition, lady! ;)

are you kidding me!? Is it Baker too, or just a look a like? either way, amazing find!!!

LOVE anything with a bamboo base, I lucked out years ago with an ebony base and moroccan top but this one is gorgeous!! I need to get over my fear of Craiglist!!

Julie Reinwald said...

What a great find, Pam! And I can't keep my eyes off of that rug ;)

Kris @ Driven by Décor said...

Such an awesome find you lucky girl!! I don't know how you continue to score so many great things on CL week after week. Our CL is so overpriced that it's hardly worth looking at :(

Pat@Life At Lydias House said...

Hands down, you are THE BEST craigslist shopper ever!!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

LOVE this table!! You find the best pieces on craigslist!!

Albertina M. Cisneros said...

It is beautiful!! So lucky!! A real score and you styled it beautifully.

I have the same table! The base of mine wasn't in as good of shape so I had it lacquered in black! My original plan was to sell it...and then I wanted to "just see" what it looked like in a living room and it hasn't left my living room since!

Sharon B. said...

You find the best things on CL! This table is gorgeous, what a steal!

Jennifer Lippi said...

You have done it again Pam! Don't you get such a rush off if scoring such great deals? Love the way you styled it :)

Debbie J. said...

You did it again, girl! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.....love, love, love, gosh I would love to find something like that. Is it a Baker as well?

Jen (House of Ruby Jean) said...

Wowza, woman! You could make a job of flipping this furniture!

Glenna said...

What a great find! I have furnished most of my 4100+ sq foot home with Craigslist finds. I keep a list of wants, key word search words, and go thru everything twice a day. Persistence pays off. Besides I love the thrill of the hunt and knowing I have so many things that cost me a fraction of retail. It always amazes me of what little treasures are out there! I recently bought a Labarge console table for $40.00 I even bought my pure breed Golden Retriever,Tucker, on Craigslist. My very favorite purchase ever!!!

Mary said...

I need a larger vehicle so I can start scouring CL. My little Honda wouldn't hold much.

Vel Criste said...

You are just so darn lucky Pam!!!!!!! Love it too!

Cheryl Luckett said...

That is one stunning table!

Regina Melo-Jocknevich said...

Wow, what a found!!! And you did such a great job!

I came to your blog through Brandi's blog (I read your comment there) and I am glad I did. I need to learn from you how to find these 'gems' at Craigslist.

Have a great Sunday.
