Hi there, I'm Katie from As for me and my House. I have always loved garage saleing but we have a pretty short season for it here in Montana with our nasty winters. So, imagine my happiness when I discovered Craigslist shortly after my husband and I bought our first house. We had some hand me downs from our families but a very small budget to really make our house a home. Craigslist to the rescue!
Six years, three kids, many job changes and one new house later our budget is still pretty tight. Thankfully I've been able to find some great pieces on CL, here are a few of my favorites.......
This little chair was $15
I scored this great vintage china cabinet for a whopping $12! I never took a before photo but it was painted 1970's avocado green and took a lot of elbow grease to get it looking like this.
This queen size vintage channel back headboard was a steal at $20!
My favorite CL find was this eight and a half foot long vintage sofa for $125. It was absolutely immaculate but not really my style, so I painted and reupholstered it.
Here it is before:
