Craigslist Killers!.... Deals That Is

If money were no object and I had a huge storage space, I’d spend all of my time on Craiglist scoring major deals on fabulous stuff.  I can’t tell you how many great killer deals I’ve gotten (and made) over the years and it just keeps getting better.  One of my personal favorites was this set of six bamboo chairs for $60. 

Yes, that’s $10 a piece!  Just for a point of reference, these are $17 on Wal-Mart’s website.  Hello.

I immediately painted them white for a gathering at my home.  Previously they were a pinkish pickled wood. Unfortunately, 99% of the time they lived in my garage until I recently decided to give them a fresh update with a coat of paint, recovered seat cushions and the addition of a couple of monogrammed throw pillows. 

Olympic’s Blue Shamrock

One word, YUM!

In case you run into your own killer deal on some retro chic bamboo furniture, here are a few ideas. 

  • Tangerine is the Pantone 2012 Color of the Year, remember.

  • Better hope you beat me to this one.  I would LOVE to own a bench like this.  

  • Using a bamboo screen as a headboard = great idea!
