I Spy a Craigslist Buy (4)

Hey friends, happy Monday, happy August!! 
It's so dangerous for me to do these posts, I have to exercise serious restraint!
Every time I see something fun and unique I'm so tempted to sell what I have,
it always inspires me to want to change things up...again! 

These listings are currently available on Denver Craigslist.
(just click on the link below the heading).
I've paired the listing with an inspiration photo to give you an idea how you
 could use/transform the piece.
I've always loved how Tobe Reed used this pair of bold campaign style end tables
in her living room. This first listing is a steal, the whole kit and caboodle for $40, and
you could easily get a similar look by painting the tables and attaching gold L braces
 to the fronts of the drawers like I did on the Anthropologie Knock Off Dresser.  
They're a great size too, 25 x 25 x 21.

 Wood Coffee Table and Matching End Tables - $40 (Parker)

 Red Velvet Sofa - $250

Beautiful Brass Bed w/ Rails $100  (Denver Central)

Brass Lamp - $10 (HEB -Aurora)

 1970s Chartreuse Houndstooth Chairs by Kroehler - $125 ea $200 pair (Englewood)

Hope you're inspired to check your local Craigslist, 
and, of course, if you score one of these finds I'd love to know!

Pam - Your Craig's List finds/inspirations are my favorite, and I hope you will offer them regularly. I so appreciate your talent in showing readers what we might do to improve a find, and how a similar item has been successfully used by a designer. Best, Ann

You have serious vision lady! I love what you see when you look at Craigslist - I would never have looked at those chartreuse chairs and thought them interesting but look at the rooms you found - gorgeous! I love that navy library with the green! You have such a talent for rethinking a piece.
