Weekend projects for you via Craigslist

Saturday used to be Craigslist day around here and I haven't been very good about keeping that up. Here are a few items on the Charlottesville and Richmond Craigslists for those of you who might be looking for a little project.


First of all, this little bench is only $10 and the seat is upholstered in burlap. Paint that wood and you could have a wannabe Danish/Swedish thing going on. Looking a little more closely, it needs to be reupholstered, but you wouldn't need more than a remnant to recover it.

You all are lucky I don't have extra space for storage because I'd be snapping this up myself. Someone in Rugby Road is selling a Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams Alexa sofa. If you've been reading for a while, you know that I have an Alexa in my living room. It costs way, way more than the $375 the seller is asking. The seller adds that the price is not firm.

Second up is an oval dining table that takes a leaf. The photo is horrible, but for $30, I'd snap it up, slap some paint on it, and see if I could find it a home.


This $50 dresser is begging for a coat of paint and some new hardware.

These cute side tables are only $25. I'd paint them black. I'm going to have that song in my head for the rest of the day now.

A four poster bed for $75 seems like a bargain, especially when it looks like it came from Martha Stewart's Bernhardt collection.

This table looks a little shabby, but it's only $20. Some people spend more than that on coffee in a week. I'm sure it will look infinitely better with a coat of paint.

Anyone have a little project in the works for this weekend? Care to share you plans?


  1. Hi, that MGBW slipcovered Alexa sofa is a great deal! Keep in mind, you can always order extra sets of slipcovers for her to match any room, color format, or whatever...underneath is a muslin base which is designed to accommodate any MGBW fabric....

  2. Ooh, good finds! I like that bench and bed. I haven't been having much luck finding the stuff I want on craigslist lately, but I'm not giving up!

    We do plan on adding some type of artwork/shelving in our bathroom soon, but I'm not sure if we'll get to it this weekend.

  3. Great finds, I have Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams dining room chairs for Crate & Barrel....great finds! I think I need to check out Craigslist more often....never know what you will find! :)

  4. I haven't spilled the official beans on the blog yet, but the boyfriend moved in last week and we're spending the weekend on a whirlwind organization project. The whole apartment. Because there's just not enough room if we don't get things seriously straightened up!

  5. Ooooh, I love these posts. Great finds, Jeannine!
