No, I'm not about to turn this blog into a dating site or diary of my love life. Well at least not that love life... but I will open it up to one of the love's of my life. CRAIGSLIST!
"Find me a find..." comes to mind whenever I log on and start searching. I'm not often looking for anything in particular... just looking. It's how I found Cody's dog crate, sold my washer and dryer and even found that round mirror I have big plans for but have not yet found the time to get started.
But, finally I've got a purpose in my search and I can't wait to find it.
I want and need this table. It's from Coastal Living Magazine and it wants to leave those pretty little pages and come live with me.
And, it would like for 4 of these chairs to come live with it. However, my pocketbook doesn't really agree. That table sells for $1,729 and those chairs... wait for it... $549 each. That's right - per chair, not for a set of 4.
No, I haven't lost my mind. Even if I rolled like that I'm not sure I could "roll" like that. Particularly for a round wooden table and 4 wooden chairs. For that kind of money I'm going to need some gold or silver or it at least needs to come with dinner prepared every night.
In comes Craigslist and why I love it so. I'm not scared to throw a little paint on something or break out the staple gun and reupholster a chair seat. So, here's what I'm on the prowl for. I have found a number of tables that might make it. Here's one and I sort of even like the color.
Those chairs aren't even terrible, but not my favorite. My plan is to find the table I want first and even if it comes with chairs I don't like just throw them back on Craigslist and sale them for the cost of the paint its going to take to work on my little project.
And these chairs would do it. They're not the Coastal Living chairs but they still look pretty good to me. But, that table is not what I'm looking for. And so the search continues...
There's also no way that I'll be buying two dining room suits from Craigslist. Who needs 2 tables and 8 chairs in their house? Not to mention, I've still got my current dining room table and chairs. Maybe I should put those on Craigslist and get them sold first...
