i heart craigslist

I've always been a casual craigslist user, mainly when I needed to get rid of something I bought for the house that didn't work out. Now, I am totally addicted. Did you know they have a 'materials' category now? I think that's new. I spend no less than 30 minutes a day on there now.

Anyway........ last week, I got rid of some old storm windows, storm door and a 'Madison'-style exterior door. I also found a dining set I thought I needed to have. So I sold my "old" one (yes, the one I bought less than two years ago) on craigslist to some very cool people. I have some other construction projects going on around here (that I need to update you all on) that will significantly change the "feel" of the dining room and the old set just isn't going to jive with the new direction. I'm still on the fence about the dining table I found. It has a broken foot and a not-so-great paint job. I'm thinking I'll pass on it. So, there's just lots of extra space in the dining room now which will be helpful for the time being.

But, today, I found a conference table for the office-I-never-work-in AND scored these super cool chairs

They're almost as gorgeous in person. I have a thing for diamonds, stars, and Xs so I HAD to have them. As you can probably tell from this seller's pic, the place was full of stuff for sale. I looked around while he helped another craigslister load a beautiful crib into his car. Browsing around, I found a good-as-new (!!!) Ballard Designs (drool) wall organizer. "How much?" "Eh, 10 bucks." Yeeeeeee!!

I just looked it up. It's this one: wall pocket. Yes, the $70 one. My first (and probably only) BD item! I'm not even sure where it's going, but I don't care!

I interrupted my final tasks on the stairs to post this (love to procrastinate those last steps -- no pun intended!), so I should have the stair wrap-up posted soon.
