I wasn't exactly in the market for my first find; but when a piece like this antique six-drawer pine chest comes along, it's only a fool who passes it up. Believe me when I say that, if I passed on this chest of drawers, someone should have me committed. This makes two pine chests in our home...I sense a new obsession coming on.
I found it for the low, low price of $75. Three quarters of a hundred dollars never looked so good. I styled up the pine chest with one of my antique Empire chairs, a demijohn lamp I had made and mushroom prints found at a flea market this summer. I'm digging the look.
My second find, a white parsons-style table, now functions as a game table in our finished basement. The space down there is slowly coming together and a $30 bargain like this gets me closer to being ready to show it off.

I discovered the matching set of unique bentwood chairs in Maine over the summer for $25/piece. They definitely need some new paint and new seats, but will be sensational when made over!
So to continue my month-long exercise in gratitude, today I am thankful for:
Craigslist. Despite having to cull through pages of junk, diamonds can be found in the rough on Craigslist. I'm grateful for the ability to find beautiful bargains like these.
Have you found any amazing items on Craigslist lately? What do you think of my finds?
