Great Finds: I Spy Craigslist Furniture Buys (6)

I Spy Craigslist Furniture Buys (6)
Last time I posted an I Spy a Craigslist Buy someone asked how often I do them or if I post on a specific day, I'll try to aim for every two weeks, but since I'm at the mercy of Craig I have to be flexible.  :)  I was thinking how much fun it would be to design an entire room with today's finds. I can't even let my brain go there, it won't turn off - imagining how to balance it all to work together, how each piece would function and then fabrics, colors, paint, accessories...it's endless. 

These listings are currently available on Denver Craigslist.

Craigslist furniture inspiration - secretary desk
Cabinet/Desk $50 (Erie)

Secretary desk - Craigslist furniture finds
I see these secretary desks all the time, but my favorite is this style with fretwork detail on the doors. This is a steal for $50, and they're gorgeous painted. I thought it looked like the finial at the top was broke off, but I've seen them without as well, so not sure. I love the idea of using one as a bar.

Thomasville Vintage Buffet $80 (Arvada)

Craigslist furniture find - Vintage buffet
The hardware is probably worth more than $80! Sounds like a great quality piece of furniture, there's nothing better than warm wood against a crisp white background.


It would make a great functional dining room buffet. I'd pair it with a table and chairs with more contrast than this, black or white would be pretty.The lamp and pendant are the perfect modern accents.


Painted and used as office storage.


Upholstered Bench $30 (Southeast Aurora)
38" x 17" x 23"
The fabric on this bench may be ok it's hard to tell, it looks like it could be a great global, boho style with some fun colors. If that doesn't work for you, a bold zebra print and some gold detail on the legs would give you this $2,000 Horchow look.


Beautiful Chair $30 (Lakewood)

Craigslist furniture find - chair
In a heartbeat, I would paint this gem a dark or fun color to show off the silhouette. You guys know I have a weakness for inexpensive chairs, they make such an interesting statement. There's a lot going on in this area for me, but my eye goes directly to the silhouette of that charming chair.


Vintage Empire Style Sofa - Eclectic $400 (Denver)
Reupholstered from Calico Corners - down cushions, excellent condition.

Another lovely Craigslist photo, haha!  Gingham and Buffalo checks are trending and paired with modern or edgy pieces take on a new vibe. Here are some ideas for how to mix checks to up the chic factor.
