First, I found this snazzy little mid-century dresser.
The drawers are covered in a latex paint that is easily peeling away. So far, from what I can tell, the wood underneath is in great shape. The top and sides are clearly covered with an oil-based paint that will be more difficult to remove. I haven't decided yet if I'll do that, or leave it white. The dimensions make it perfect for me to use as a bedside table. That's not the best deal though...
From the same seller, I got this Danish Teak loveseat frame. For $5. That's right. I'm going to have to make some new cushions for it. I'm thinking an oatmeal colored linen-like fabric. Box cushions with a matching welt. I've never done it, but surely it can't be that hard!
$5! Can you believe it? She had no idea what she had...she kept calling it a "bench". Oh well. Her loss is my gain!
This week I'll post some new pictures of my kitchen/living/dining area. Things have changed quite a bit up there since I last posted pictures.
So, what kind of finds have you made on craigslist since our last talk? Post some links in the comments - I'd love to see!
