~Can I just vent about Craigslist first? I love the idea of people being able to sell their unwanted items to someone who could use them. Awesome concept! I have to say, though, a person's 10 year old fabric couch that looks like it has been through the war and used as a toilet, selling for $500, annoys me.~
Anyways....I happened to run across a post for a dresser. The price, $30. From the picture, the dresser looked like it needed a little work, but I was willing to fix it up for $30! I contacted the seller. She informed me that she has 3 other people ahead of me and sounded like it was already sold. So I gave up.
On Tuesday evening, I got an email from the seller asking if I was still interested. The first two people flaked out on her (her words) and she was giving the third person till that evening to contact her back. I did not hear anything Wednesday morning or afternoon and figured it sold.
By dinner time on Wednesday, the seller got back with me. It was mine! Yesterday, right after work, Clint and I went to pick it up. I was in love! Here is our new dresser in the office.
Do you love it?? Clint did not until he saw it in the room. It needed nothing done to it at all, just a dusting!
I grabbed a few vases I had sitting around and a lamp for now.
I love lamp! I bought it years ago from Pottery Barn Teen. It has pockets in the shade to hold pictures, postcards, or whatever tickles your fancy.
Here are close ups of a couple of my favorite photographs I have taken over the years:

What do you think of the dresser?
