Craigslist? More Like Gold Mine!

I wasn't feeling the original color scheme of the sitting room,
so I changed it up with a few slipcovers and rugs.
4 Craigslist chairs ($75)


1 Craigslist armoire ($50)
2 Craigslist chairs ($FREE$)


1 Craigslist chair ($FREE$)


After the overhaul-




1 Craigslist bench ($30)
I reupholstered this little bench and added a few canvas bins for storage.

We spend a lot more time in this room now...
I think it's just because the atmosphere is calming.


Not Craigslist - but still a new addition.
9 Amazing Craigslist finds
1 lesson learned -
stick with the name-brand paint!
These letters took upwards of 6 coats of paint.
I quit counting...

Thanks for dropping by!
