Craigslist Monday

Happy Monday Budget Decorating Darlings! Have you been waiting with bated breath for today’s Craigslist Monday deal? The wait is over– in fact, you’re getting a two-fer today because I couldn’t decide which of these under $100 deals was my favorite!

I love the warm colored wood and can see this as a good start to a master or guest bedroom with a caribbean resort feel. Picture crisp white linens and slightly distressed painted side tables.

With this second deal, I’m going to ask that you really use your imagination to see past the shoddy pictures:

You can’t beat the price for this set; $65 for a table and four chairs. I fell in love with the lines though. The chairs would need their cushions recovered and it looks like it all needs a good polishing, but with lines like that, I guarantee the elbow grease will be worth it.

** Just so you know, I’m not related in any way or shape to any of the sellers of the items that I feature and I don’t make any claims or guarantees about the condition of the items featured. I’m judging from the pictures and information posted, just like you. Please use common sense when purchasing fromcraigslist . Don’t go to a stranger’s home alone. Bring only the stated cash for the item you’re purchasing and make sure you inspect everything thoroughly before you give them any money. Craigslist purchases don’t come with guarantees or return policies, so what you see is what you get. (And that’s the end of my public service announcement!)

I’m very excited about the posts that are planned for the rest of the week! Some of the things you can look forward to are Manuela’s interview and a tour of her gorgeous home, our first $20 decorating project, and, maybe, just maybe, a CONTEST! Make sure you come back tomorrow… oh, and don’t forget, Melissa’s started Inspiration Week at The Inspired Room today with her surprise guest interview, so go get inspired!
