My Newest Craigslist Scores!!

Hello! Things are happening around here slowly but surely. We've been tackling some big and little projects over the last few weeks and sometimes it feels like it's never going to end. So, today I decided to add a couple more projects to the list by making a couple craigslist purchases!

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!
