I Spy a Craigslist Buy (3)


Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend, we took in a Greek 
Festival, enjoyed a fun neighborhood get-together on Saturday and celebrated Father's
 Day with a big hearty breakfast at our favorite local cafe, then we sent Detail Boy off to
 camp for the next week, and I miss him already! :(  

Today's Craigslist Buy is all about chairs - I love the statement a simple chair
can make when upholstered in a great unique fabric.
These Craigslist listings are currently available (just click on the link below the heading)
 but there is an abundance here if they aren't quite your style or if you miss out. 

Here are the listings along with inspiration rooms to give you an idea how
you could transform the chairs.

Having pieces professionally reupholstered isn't inexpensive but it's worth it to me
 for the one-of-a-kind custom look that can be created. And, of course if the piece
of furniture is a bargain that's justification enough, right? :)

Hope you're inspired to check your local Craigslist!

Jenny said...

What a great post, Pam! Now I will be scouring our local craigslist looking for chairs! :-)

Roxine Grant said...

Great vision! I always see the old chairs they post just as old chairs. I think I'll look at them a bit differently now. But what about possible bug infestation with thins from CL? That's always my fear. How do you avoid that?

Pam I just scrolled back and forth about 50 times - you make me see things in a whole new light! I love your vision for cast offs - it's truly amazing what some gorgeous fabric can do! Love the blue ikat slipcovered parsons chairs with the pretty trim. Your weekend sounds lovely and I am sure Detail Boy will have a blast at camp while you two lovebirds have date night every night!

Oh my word, you can look at the impossible and come up with the most amazing makeoers. I would take any of them. I check my craigslist often, wow, nothing so far.

Hi Roxine - Knock on wood, I've never had a problem with bugs, just the thought of it totally creeps me out! Always do a good visual inspection under cushions and in the crevices of furniture, if the lighting isn't good I wouldn't hesitate asking if I could look at the item outside in bright natural light (you can always say you're checking the color). If I were the least bit suspicious because of the cleanliness of the environment I'd pass on the item.

Pam - Do you have a recommendation for a great upholster in Denver? Thx, Jill

Dianne said...

You are the best at this!!! Oh how I wish we had those finds down here.

Always my favorite post from you!!! This one is good because I have a major chair obsession!!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I love this series! Fun stuff!

Kris Jarrett said...

You have such an amazing eye! Like Lisa, I scrolled up and down a bunch of times - it's amazing how close in styles the chairs you found were to the inspiration chairs! Enjoy your child-free week :)

What a fun post!! I wish our craigslist had half the goodies yours does!!

Kim said...

Thought about you when I drove an hour and a half last week to buy 2 little cane seated auditorium chairs from Poland ... for $20.00!!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

You find the greatest things on CL and show us how beautifully they can be transformed....

Lori Appleton said...

I love these posts (and your craigslist eye)!

All so pretty and yes, with a little elbow grease, any chair can look chic and fancy!
