My name is Gina, and I’m addicted to craigslist. It all started with an attempt to get rid of an armoire that was much too large for our living room. I wanted to get rid of it quickly as we were having our ceilings fixed (thanks to an ugly ice dam last winter). I decided to try selling it on craigslist. I priced it to sell and it was gone in a flash. Super easy transaction. I was sold!
I started searching for a headboard and found one for FREE (what my brother says is the family’s favorite f-word)! Decided I should also look for a set of nightstands. Done and done!
I found a set of these:
Made of good solid wood, and the drawers worked well too. I was embarking on my first furniture makeover! I went for black paint. (or brown/black? I had a can of previous owners paint in my basement I decided I would use.).
Added some acrylic knobs from target , and here’s the AFTER:
Now I’ve got to tackle the headboard! I’m tossing around a few ideas, we’ll see what I come up with!
As for the craigslist addiction, my husband cut me off until I’ve completed overhauling my finds (um, yeah, there’s a few more). I told him that’s what winter is for. Yep, he’s given me a deadline. Ha!
