Craigslist finds for the Richmond crowd

By request, I've perused the Richmond Craigslist site to find some items that might find new life in your home if given a nice coat of paint.

First up, this FREE table and chairs. They are sitting on somebody''s porch in The Fan. Go get them!

They look pretty average, but if you have a garage and some time, you could turn them into something pretty nice.

Next up is this sad, old hutch for $40. It's in Bonair.

The doors have me really excited. You'll need some sort of console on which to rest the whole thing, but you could pull an Eddie Ross and make it look far more impressive than $40. You could also paint the interior some fun color or line it with decorative paper.

Here are a few more pieces that I would slap some paint on immediately.

Octagon side tables, $25 (might look cool with a glossy, white finish)
Pretty side table, $35 (another candidate for a white paint job)
Drop-leaf side table, $45 (I think gray or black would look good on this one)
Simple, oval cocktail table, $20 OBO (I think I'd go with white or gray here, but who cares, it's $20!)
If you have a daughter who loves her baby dolls, a $35 baby cradle (would look so cute in a creamy white)

Wasn't that fun?

If you have rehabilitated a Craigslist find and want to share it, feel free to email me with pictures and details!
