This is where I was at 6am yesterday morning. Hiking some of the awesome trails near my neighborhood with a friend.
So fun to be out in the cooler air, before it gets too hot! It’s that time of year when you start not wanting to be outside too much during the day, after about 10am. So, good motivation to be inside working.
Remember the craft room table that you’ve seen in postings? Well, the $25 Craigslist table in the craft room just wasn’t cutting it.
Though I was assured it was sturdy and it seemed alright, once I got it home and on carpet, it just wasn’t sturdy enough due to the way it is made. I had planned to totally redo it by changing out the legs, sanding and painting. But, then I realized that new legs would run me about $150. That plus a lot of work.
So, I went to Craigslist again and found this table instead.
I went to look at it and bought it for $100, thus saving me money and time. (Table photos are from the Craigslist ads.)
This “new” table is 6 inches less deep, but that is great! I love it! Much, much more sturdy! It’s already in the craft room and the old one is up on Craigslist, though I may end up giving it away.
As soon as I went to the door of this Craigslist-er, I knew she was a blogger just based on the wreath. It was so adorable. Come to find out, she was a blogger, had actually happened to know of my painted chair (what are the odds) and had lived in Utah for a few years like us. I now follow her blog! It’s awesome, but I’ll let Katie share the URL in the comments if she would like to.
Our house sometimes feels like a revolving furniture store sometimes. We have so much on from our home Craigslist right now, from this entertainment center (below) to random décor items to this art from Bombay (below the entertainment center).
Love the entertainment center and art, but we have no place to put them!
And, this week, despite the things I just named, I also already sold a sofa, chair, and bench! I just cannot stand to keep things around if I’m not using them and can’t find a way to repurpose them right away.
Do you all use Craigslist as much as I do?
