Today's CL Finds

Sometimes I randomly peruse Craig's List for awesome deals on vintage finds and I also I help others find items they are looking for.  I've commissioned some pretty good deals in the past, and I think it is fun, so it's a win - win for sure.  Today I decided to concentrate on kitchen and dining, and here are today's finds:  Cover the chair cushions and use them with a different table, or keep the table, the 70's are back!  I love this table.  Simple, solid and would be easily changed up with painted or upholstered chairs.  I love casters.  Okay the chairs are awful but the table is sweet!  Just the right combo of traditional and contemporary, you could do just about anything with this.  I love huge round dining tables with arm-chairs.  Not my style but this is an amazing deal.  The green hutch thing is wonderful.  I need it.  Precious.  Paint immediately,  grey with white linen cushions would be nice.  Love the dinette set and the china cabinet.  I'm pretty sure it's maple, not oak.  I like the Danish Modern-esc look of it.

All of these pieces could use a little work, but they are totally worth it.  A little paint and upholstery work and you've got a one-of-a-kind piece at a ridiculously low price.  If you are on the lookout for something in particular, let me know.  You never know what I might be able to find for you.

Fun fact of the day: The US customs office considers antique as anything 100 years old or older.
