I have been laid up this weekend with a bum ankle and have spent way too much time on my computer. I mean, how often can a girl update her Facebook status? :-)
One of the things that helped pass the time was perusing Austin's Craigslist. I'm not in the market for anything specific right now, but it's fun to look. Here are some of the great deals I found...
Can you believe this West Elm dhurrie rug (8'x5') is just $40?
This patio set is just $95.
Need a new leather sofa? This one's just $500.
This whole bedroom set (full bed, dresser, chest & mirror) is just $215 -- a steal!
This Craigslist is selling her IKEA Ektorp loveseat for $120. An off-white slipcover is just $40 or so, which would make this a great CL find.
Here's an Ektorp leather sofa for just $300.
This dresser and mirror is just $75.
This style is hot, hot, hot right now, and it's just $150.
The listing calls this an armoire. It's 41" wide, and I'm thinking it'd be perfect for today's flat-screen TV's. In fact, this is one piece that I might be interested in myself.
Something about this antique trunk is intriguing to me. At $200, it's not a steal, but that's not outrageous, either.
I used to think it'd be fun to mosaic an antique mantel. This one's $175, which is a great deal, if you've ever priced them. That fireplace insert comes with it, though I wouldn't want it.
This sweet table is the best deal -- $50 or best offer. It is an antique game table. I sure wish I had room for something like that right now.
In the market for a full-size bed? This antique one is just $75.
This antique armoire needs a little work, but for just $50, that's totally worth it.
Isn't Craigslist shopping fun?
Just a reminder about this Friday's first Friday Cocktail blog party. Feel free to add the Friday Cocktail button on my sidebar. To upload the YouTube video, once you're at YouTube and at the video you want, there's a little section to the top right of the video itself. It says something like "embed URL." Copy that and then paste it into the body of your post.
I'll get Mr. Linky situated, and you'll come here to include the permalink of your post (not the general blog link). So easy! I hope you'll join us.
