Craigslist Finds: The Christmas Countdown is On!

So it’s officially less than a month away from the most magical time of the year for light lovers, tree smell sniffers and gag gift givers… Nevermind the decor judgers and grudge holders, they all come out of the woodwork at this time of the year, whether we like it or not. But not to worry, the list of Craig’s got your back, of that you can be sure. And that fabulous new set of chairs you got for the dining room? Oh yes, very expensive, got them at a pop up shop on Queen that’s gone now, can’t believe you didn’t see it. *wink*

They seem repro, but not bad for some outdoor furniture, or even indoor if you’re so inclined. Easy to add to pretty much any style of room except French Provincial. Which, if that’s what you’re still going with and you don’t live in Provence, you’re going to need more than a few chairs to sort out….

MCM, Viscol, Double Bed Frame with 2 Matching Night Tables - $425

MCM, Viscol, Double Bed Frame with 2 Matching Night Tables – $425 

Not bad for a matching set! Yes it’s a double, but where are you going to find stylish MCM furniture for your guest/kids room at a comparable price? You’d spend this much buying new and then some. Perfect for a smaller sized space that you want to use, but don’t want the harmonica song loneliness of a twin bed…

Can we first just point out how nicely this piece is staged? You don’t get quality pieces like this at this price looking this cool very often, so 11/10 for curb appeal. This could be a fabulous addition to a bedroom set or dining area, maybe even a hallway console? It’s not the cheapest piece we have ever featured, this is true, but it’s still very competitively priced for MCM walnut and an excellent starting point if you’re wanting to spend some money adding some more permanent pieces to the home collection. Just make sure you have coasters. Cause you KNOW Uncle Steve is going to put his drinks on this and walk away.

Again, great styling… Seems to be the same person selling multiple pieces, and having excellent taste! This is a genuine Scandinavian piece so you can’t go wrong when it comes to quality and reputation. This could easily be in a bedroom or living room depending on your storage needs. And easy to vacuum under. Yes, I just wrote that.

Sofa / Day bed - $200

Sofa / Day bed – $200 

Love this with the bent wood arm rest and legs, but the arm rest also moves to become the pillow when you remove the back pillows to convert this into a bed. Good for a multifunctional room that needs to be an office by day but a potential someone’s too festive to drive home crash pad/ snore escape locale. Would be easy to make or have covers made for the cushions too! A nice palm leaf print, perhaps????

Need extra guest chairs? Got some extra red, orange or yellow paint? Maybe even some Scandi inspired light pink or mint paint to switch up the everyday home palette?The world is your DIY decor oyster, for $30. Uncle Steve can put his glasses all over these and who gives a sh&* about the rings? Wipe em right off your shiny upcycled chairs an focus on more important things, like finding out who has been feeding the dog tinsel.
