Furniture from Craigslist....

I am on a hunt for a new sideboard and/or media storage for our place. I have my eye on this beauty right now, but a $2500 piece of furniture is not in the cards for us right now.

I am always hunting Craigslist for a re-doable project. Back in January, the Hubs and I mastered a Craigslist project that I am quite proud of. We bought some cheap dressers and re-finished them. I think an easier approach will be to just paint. The re-finishing is too much work.

Here was the before:

And the after:

One of my favorite blogs, Little Green Notebook has posted some really great painted furniture projects. I specifically love the red credenza in the picture above. See the blog DIY tutorial here:

I found this awesome Craigslist find today that might be a great project.


  1. Ooo, nice work dressers. I wanna play!

  2. Buy and sell new and used modern, outdoor, office, bedroom and home furniture.
    Choose from a great selection of gently used furniture for every room in your home.
