1. Painted dresser and mirror - $40
I think I'd go lighter than red for this. You'll probably spend more on painting supplies than on the actual dresser.
2. Desk lamp - $5
I'm no expert, but this looks like it could be a vintage Stiffel Bouillotte lamp.
3. Ikea shelving - $25
Okay, it's Ikea, but it's $25, already assembled, and doesn't require a two hour drive to Woodbridge.
4. Stacking Cubes - $40
This is my favorite listing of all. With a little paint, these could look fantastic! They remind me of tables for sale at West Elm right now.
5. "Lovely antique looking chair" - $25
The picture is tiny, but you can see that there's potential here. I'd paint that wood and reupholster the seat with a fun, fresh fabric. This would be an awesome Saturday project.
