Hello Everyone! Beginning today, house of earnest* will have previous guest blogger, Lacey Anne to write a regular contributing post dedicated to her amazing hidden treasures which she finds and refurbishes. I am so excited to have her sharing her finds with us on a regular basis, and I hope you’re pumped up for it too! Stop by the first Wednesday of each month to hear about her newest hidden treasure and what went into making it beautiful! – erin
One of my most recent Craigslist finds is such a treasure. I can hardly still believe it. On a Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, I came across a post titled “chairs $25.” I have an unhealthy obsession with chairs. I would fill my house with them if my husband wouldn’t kill me, but now I am allowed some discretion because we are still furnishing our home. So, I clicked. And behold:
The fact that these Chippendales were selling for $25 made me crazed. I called the seller immediately to schedule the pick-up, at whatever time worked for her. I was ready to leave work immediately if necessary. I successfully sealed the deal, picked them up at 8:30 the next morning, and gave them a face lift that same day since I was so beside myself at my good fortune.
Steal, I tell you, they were a steal. Knowing was pricing for similar chairs can be, I am one happy girl. And I love my man Craig, once again. He always comes through. You won’t believe the treasure I’ll share next month. I might have magical powers.
Any amazing Craigslist finds out there to rival this one!?
Have a wonderful day!
