Craigslist furniture we will NOT be buying:

"This shelf unit is super cute!"

"Primitive bench - $75"
(I tried to find a picture like the one of this bench, but all of google image's "primitive benches" were awesome. The craigslist bench wasn't "simple, unsophisticated." It was more "the first or earliest of the kind or in existence, esp. in an early age of the world," left out in the woods to halfway decompose.)

"Pine bench - $35 - I have to get the measurements"
(Do you think?)

"Bar Table and Swivel Chairs - Duke Theme - $100"
(The sad thing? That is actually a good price.)

"Concrete MOTORCYCLE Saddle Garden Bench UNIQUE - $125"
(Unique was a very kind way to describe it. I won't traumatize you with photos, but I will tell you: it was painted with pink flames.)

And maybe my favorite: "beautifull leather elephant 38 W X 36H bought from ashley furnishers good condition too large for house "


  1. Did I ever tell you that I couldn't bear to give away your little blue desk? And then my mom fell in love with it while I was gone and moved it into her office where now it is happy because it is used every day.

  2. Did I ever tell you that I think about that cute desk every time I go to Goodwill? I'm glad it has such a happy home. Last week I bought a chair from Goodwill that someone had painted the exact same shade of blue. If I ever fix my sewing machine, that is where I will sit to sew. And if I don't, at least it will look vibrant in the corner of the living room.
