I Spy a Craigslist Buy (5)

Happy September, friends!
This first inspiration photo illustrates a perfect fall setting in my book. If I didn't
 have a stockpile of chairs stacked to the ceiling in my basement it would have me
 seriously considering recreating this fabulous scenario! 
These listings are currently available on Denver Craigslist.
(Just click on the link below the heading)
I've paired each listing with inspiration photos to spark your imagination and give
 you some ideas how you could use/transform the piece.

Amazing vision for what your CL finds could be, as usual! I love that wicker chest and need to make a road trip to Ikea with that on my very long list.

I always love when you do posts like this and find the gorgeous inspirational photos to match. I've been on the lookout for a similar loveseat.

These posts are the BEST. Inspiration abounds. However, my CL has been very dry.
I won't give up after these posts. Keep me coming!!!

I adore old wood furniture that I can paint and upcycle. I have dining chairs similar to those above. You can see them at www.mbzinteriors.com/?p=4631 and tell me what you think. I got 2 arm chairs for $25 at a neighborhood tag sale!

Laurie from Laurie Jones Home said...

My favorite post you do!!! So much fun! You are good girl!!

Brandi said...

I love that you did the post this way. Sharing the CL finds along with inspiration pictures was genius!! Great work, Pam!

Linda Darling said...

Just love your CL posts! For those of us who are less creative, its a real lesson in how to envision a way to decorate with used items. Thank you so much!

I love this series. I wish the listings in Craigslist in my area were as nice.

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

Your craigslist is so much better than mine! I would have to drive an hour away to find good things.

Oh what "seller's remorse" these sellers would have if they saw your post! You are such a visionary. I love these posts!

Vel Criste said...

I want those trunks and windsor chairs!
