|The previous thread hit its limit. I bought these yesterday - 2 Ethan Allen chairs for $50 each. Unfortunately the fabric doesn't match my decor. Might have to learn to make slipcovers.|
|About the last item posted on the previous thread: I found the same item for sale in Santa Rosa for $1,000. |

|Wow Suero! Much better pics but a much better price on my end! Ooooh, I hope I get it!|
|What do you think of this coffee table? |
|I love both of them! The second one in particular is so cool. It likely has a lower profile though so I would keep that in mind. |
It could also possibly serve as an end table depending on the measurements.
The first one looks like it could be at home in a more casual setting and would also allow a patterned rug to show through better than the second one.
I think they are both wonderful finds! I'd be tempted to buy both of them if the price is right and ask questons later, LOL
|I love that second one. |
What do you all think of this?
It says 10 yr old custom made mohair.
|Nosoccermom, I've been trying to figure out what I didn't like about the first one. I have a version of the glass/brass LaBarge coffee tables we see posted a lot and I like rustic, like the base of that one. I think I didn't like the rustic base with the cleaner look of the glass, for some reason. The pairing seems off. |
That second one made my heart pitter-patter!
|First one is sold (for 100.00), second one is still available for 450.00. Helas, DH vetoed it because it's "too shiny."|
|Heywood-Wakefield Butterfly table for 200.00 with two extension leaves |
|Haha! I'd tell him, "It's just the flash" :) |
I'd have to pass at 450, anyway. My Goodwill coffee table was $40 and I hemmed and hawed 'til I almost lost it to another buyer.
|Had to revive this thread, perfect item for the unfitted kitchen I think:|

|I'm picking this up tomorrow. Hopefully I'm getting a good deal, but I'm excited either way! We are buying our first house and the kitchen is limited on storage. I'm new here and really looking forward to bending everyone's ear when we get the keys next week... I've been lurking for a while now and can't wait to jump in :) |

|Not craigslist--a tag sale. Love these, never seen any like them before! Wish I had a place to use them.|
|I'm not sure if this is a deal...but I'm sure it's creepy.|

Do you think that table is veneer?

|4 chairs for $200 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. What a steal and a fun group for a cottage, play room or loft, but my colors are light blue blue and green. I see this paired with a striped cotton rug from Dash and Albert.|

|Kitchen Island and two bar stools. Saw this at Ikea on Memorial Day. Had it on my list to purchase. Saw it on Craig's List 3 days later and grabbed it. And it was less than 3 miles from home (closer than Ikea). All hardwood with the exception of the divider in the middle. The top is thick oak butcherblock. Stainless steel shelves. Perfect condition, the stainless steel shelves even still have the protective plastic on them. It's for our shore house. Ikea list price is $399 for the island and $69/each for the stools. I got all for $180. Our kitchen cabinets are coming on Friday. They are Wolf white painted shaker. So this goes perfectly. My husband was getting annoyed because he just laid the floor and all I was excited about was the deal that I got...LOL|
|We've been looking for a pantry or any type of furniture with many shallow drawers on Craigslist for our breezeway. Everyone wanted a huge amount for a small piece of furniture with drawers - all pantries were part of kitchens which were overpriced and I didn't need a full kitchen. I expanded my search, and found this 9 hours after it had been posted - I checked early Sunday morning, so that helped. It was listed as a "kitchen hutch" - plywood boxes, roll outs, too tall but we measured and know we can make it fit (we know to use the Pythagorean Theorem to tilt that box up!) - I love power tools! We will swap the doors to the opposite cabinets, then put them unfinished side to unfinished side, pop a piece of stained moulding on top across both cabinets, then a small piece down the middle. Voila! 2 pantries! |
My DH and I are at a show down about the center pieces and where to put them. I say "she with the power tools wins."
The cabinets look a little odd in the photo on the right - they are really pretty. One of the muntins needs to be re-glued, but it is there. We paid the asking price, drum roll please...........$100. And the very nice gentleman delivered them for $75. We could not have purchased one Ikea pantry for twice that amount. And these are a little shallower, (21" deep) which is what we wanted. I love Craigslist!
|Wow--that's a fabulous deal and very smart thinking on your part. Conngratulations!|
|Holy cow! What a steal! I love all of the pull-outs.|
|Awesome pantry cabinet! And what a deal.|
40.00/chair; 3 available
|Oh I want two of those for my dining room!!|
|looks too much like a handicapped bath seat for me.|
|LOL. They look better from the side. I may get them. |
|bought these four chairs today for 80 bucks. I'm about to go all Annie Sloan on these babies!|
|Great score! What color are you thinking of?|
|They are going in my kitchen. Here's my inspiration board -- I'll probably use the tulip toile pattern for the seats. What color would you do?|
|Finally got something to post on this thread. Not that great of a deal ($250) but it is the simple style I was looking for. Excellent shape. I'm happy.|
|Hm, not sure. Maybe cream and old white or old ochre and old white (see link below). Or try chalk paint from CeCe or American paint company. |
If you go with AS, I think that two or three sample pots may be enough.
Of course, you could also make your own and then have BM Palladium Blue mixed as a starting point.

|I have the AS paint in Old White and Versailles right now. I just did a cane barrel chair in Old White, and I really like it (except for the chipping!!! -- what's *that* all about??). |
Maybe a color wash with those two colors, and some dark wax as well. The AS paint is a slippery slope! I want to paint everything, LOL :)
|Nice to see this revived, as I am a CL 'Ho', as others are Target and Home Goods ho's, as noted in another thread! :-) |
I have a few Asian pieces in my home, and when I saw this on CL last week, I got the additional photos from the seller. She bought it many years ago in an antique shop in Portland's Old Port for $2,000. She's an artist, and is down sizing. I honestly don't know where I will put it yet, and something here may have to go.
It's an antique Chinese kitchen cupboard. The open top was used to store fruits and vegetables out of sun light, and the bottom would store live fowl for dinner. The height is 73 inches, width is 32 inches, and depth is 17 inches. I thought it was pine, but research shows that it's likely beech or yew.
Pic from the ad - she stored silver and china in it.
|My3dogs, that's a fabulous piece!|
|Gorgeous! Can you check my CL for pieces I "need" to get?|
|I LOVE Craigslist and would gladly check anyone's for them! |
Between CL and eBay, I have furnished much of my home with wonderful finds. Luckily this is in 2 pieces, the base ends just above the drawers, or I don't know how I'd get it home.
Nosoccermom, weren't you looking for a farm table? I was supposed to go see this today, but a friend having car trouble called and I helped him and couldn't go. It's Ethan Allen, and they are asking $250. Hopefully I can see it soon.
68" x 40", plus 20" leaf. It's similar to their small Miller table linked below.

|I want to know how something like this works. The owner claims it is a coat rack. I see there are four hooks near the top but wouldn't coats get tangled in the useless metal?|

|I am still looking for the elusive farm table, but it needs to be "just right." |
It just occurred to me that I actually have a really nice antique Flemish cherry table (also a CL find). It is expandable to the right length IF I get the additional leaf/leaves made. Right now it's in my breakfast area.
|That is a GORGEOUS table! If you could get that wood matched by a cabinet maker, that is what I'd do. The legs are just beautiful. |
I picked up the antique Chinese cupboard today and it is amazing 'in person'. The way it's put together and comes apart is like nothing I've seen before. A friend who is a carpenter went with me to get it, and he is impressed with the skill it took to make it.
|Wow, you sure pick the nicest pieces! |
I'd have to check into leaves. The only issue is that I don't want to use thetable without a table cloth, so ideally a table that's already really "rustic" would be better.
|Pine, 200.00 |
|Matching Marcus Clayton chairs in Sacramento. $200 for both.|

|What do you think of that pine 'step-back' cabinet? Is it a buy? Supposedly antique.|
|I'd have to see it in person, or a closer pic. It does look older. Have you been to see it or have closer pics or ones of the doors open?|
|No, it's the only picture, not much of a description, also no dimensions. Plus, it's about 1 hour from me. Link below. I could ask for more info. I'm basically looking for something I could use as a book case with glass doors or maybe china cabinet|

|Don't you hate it when they are so limited with the info they provide? There are some here who plop the picture and a price in, and don't even list where they live! |
I see they have a phone number when you click reply, and their house looks like a nice Colonial repro, from what little I can see. I think I'd call or email and ask for more pics and dimensions and see what happens. Looks like they are open to an offer, too!
I have made contact with the EA table people above, but trying to get more pics has been impossible. I'd rather not drive 45 miles one way, if there is something I don't like when I see it up close. They can't be THAT busy...
|I emailed. |
Supposedly, it's an "affluent" area outside of Baltimore :)
Love this too below but have no use for it.
Here is a link that might be useful: more pine
|Oooh! LOVE that! The wooden hooks for hangers are great, as is the arch on the door and wooden escutcheons on the key holes. Sadly, no place for it here either, although I would look hard to find a spot! |
The piece you emailed on may turn out to be a huge bargain! I'll be watching... :-)
|Bought this for $40. Gonna paint this baby up!|
|Got a reply. It's about 6 feet high, 4 feet wide, 1 1/2 deep? And has some slight damage on one corner. Transportation may be a problem wince it looks like one piece. |
In the meantime, how about this?
Looks like the dimensions are off and no glass...
|Oh - I like this one very much! Glass is inexpensive, and if you wanted to add some color or pattern to the bottom doors, you could use small round tension curtain rods and shirr fabric on them to cover the contents. Or use striped linen towels from Ikea etc...for an old fashioned look - depending on where it's going. |
I think this one above is one piece, also - see how the light shines through the back in the same 'stripes' on both top and bottom?
|carsonheim, I think paint is JUST what that piece needs to make it shine. What color/s do you have in mind? I picture doing a wash or colored wax over it so the raised areas are highlighted. Lots of ideas below!|

|Sorry, I *still* don't know how to cut and paste a photo. Found this today on CL and it is fabulous! I love it, but would have to sell my vintage teak to make room for it. MCM lovers will drool, I think.|

|Omigosh, does anyone want a "pull table"?|

|I'm in the process of building our house, and I always scour craigslist and ebay for bargains. After looking at particle board vanities for $500, I took a different tack, and picked up a little antique vanity table for $100. Even though it was a lot cheaper than a vanity base, I didn't have the heart to hack it up, so I was able to disassemble it and remove the center section, where the sink will go. I also found a vanity top with a built in sink (also $100). I'll put the two halves of the vanity under the countertop, and put a nice curtain across the middle to hide the plumbing. If we decide to do something better, I can reassemble the little antique vanity. In the meantime, we saved about $600 over buying something cheesy at the big box store.|
|Way to go, MushCreek! That's how I shop, too. And, like you, I can't bear to destroy it so it has to work "as is".|
|50.00 table (extends -- comes with three leaves) and 5 chairs. Table is too small for me but could be interesting. |
Here is a link that might be useful: DC area dining/kitchen table set
|Also could see this painted, especially the chairs. The whole set is 350.00 |
|And this console table for 200.00. |
No idea where I'd put it though :(
But I'm tempted.
