I consider myself a pretty savvy shopper, especially when it comes to furniture and home decor. I know what's a good deal, what's reasonable, and what's just plain ludicrous. More often than not, I find myself on Craigslist, hunting for a great find. Right now I'm looking for absolute steals, because I'm doing a lot of furniture painting, and need to factor in the cost of materials and labor into a purchase. But part of me just wants to furnish my home [or your home!] with all kinds of great pieces.
Here's a round up of things I found while trolling Craigslist last night. I collected a dining and living space, and tried to choose things I thought could work in tandem with one another. If I had the cash, I'd buy all in a heartbeat. That being said, some of these are priced reasonably, while others are a bit higher than I'd like. Regardless, all of them are much more affordable than what you'd see at many of the chain retail furniture stores around. And of course with Craigslist, you always want to check if someone can do better on the price- it never hurts to ask! So Atlanta friends, go buy one or all of these pieces TODAY!
