Bigger House=More Stuff

Lately I've been dreaming of a bigger home.  Not because I need one, but because I want to buy more furniture. I know, it is a sickness.  Here are some Austin Craigslist finds I would buy for my "new house".

$40!!! Reupholster with a fabulous fabric & put in the office.

$195 Henredon Dresser. Great quality piece & has dividers in top drawers.

$60 faux bamboo standing mirror. Who doesn't need one of these?!

$199. Not cheap for really nice. Chinoiserie beauties. I like the lines on these.

$800 Chesterfield Sofa! Great condition & timeless.

$75 vanity bench with awesome legs.

$60 bench for the entry. Make a pillow for the seat with cool fabric. Adorable!

$30!!!! Take white stickers off, give it a good cleaning & use in office or living area. So cool.

$150 70's Bar Cart. Talk them down in price. What a beauty.

$10 for all three chairs! Recover seats & possible repaint? Odd number but I like the look of mixing dining chairs. Plus, the price & the cute curve of the seats. I am a sucker for all things cane, bamboo, and cheap.

Ok, there is tons more on CL I could decorate my fictitious large house with, but I have to stop somewhere.

**Disclaimer: Did not list all great finds because want them for myself. 


  1. all great! would have picked them myself. esp. love the chesterfield (duh!), that black shiny cabinet thing great in a large room under a flatscreen or for a fabulous and unexpected dining room buffet. bench and bar cart too. i think in fact if i lived in austin i would snatch the bench up quick like.

  2. really great finds- I hope you get at least some of them for yourself!
