I've decided that Saturday is Craigslist day on this blog. I could post a few finds every day, but I feel the need to start a blog tradition. Let's get started!
Lots of bloggers have been posting about transforming old dressers into cool, modern pieces that could be used in almost every room in the house. One of my favorite projects was when Katie from Centsational Girl painted a Draper knock-off (purchased for $13) with beautiful results.
The Glam Lamb did an entire post about the original chest and variations she's seen. Kristin at Boulevard Interiors did her own revamp a few weeks ago, Bryn is on the look out for a dresser to transform like Jenny from Little Green Notebook did, Leila from In The Tweeds brought a $15 Craigslist desk back to life for her sister, and Cassandra from Coco+Kelley is working on some similar projects (she gave a sneak peak of her progress, so a full reveal must be coming soon). Most recently, Michelle from Three Men & a Lady turned a Craigslist find into a happy, yellow dresser.
Here are just a few Craigslist dressers that could be updated in the same manner:
1. Richmond (Chesterfield) dresser, $50
2. Dresser, mirror and bureau set in Charlottesville, $325 OBO for all three - I'm kind of curious about the hardware on these, which looks pretty neat. I imagine the seller would let a buyer split the set up, right? Painted with glossy paint, these might go from boring to Hollywood Regency style pieces.
3. Bedroom full of furniture in Standardsville, $350 - I wouldn't go for all of these, just a piece or two. All have pretty lines, though!
