One of my goals for this year is to redo our master bedroom. Bring it out of the 90's and into 2010!

Right now we have golden oak bedroom furniture...yuck!!! It's the last room in the house that hasn't been madeover.

So I thought I would just take a look on craigslist to see if there was any bedroom furniture for sale that I liked. WOW, all I can say is PERFECT TIMING!!!

I got this GORGEOUS mahogany bombe' style chest of drawers made by Vineyard. It is in PERFECT condition! This piece is such great quality!

I don't know what it went for brand new, but I'm sure it was in the $1500-$3000 ballpark and guess what I paid for it?????

Any idea??

Well, I got it for a mere $200....SCORE!!!!!

Thank you Jesus!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to fill up my drawers!

Ah, Craigslist, the source of some of my BEST bargains. I'd marry Craigslist if I could, but Howard might not understand.
FAB buy!

WOW! That's beautiful! I've got to try Craiglist when I redo my kitchen and living room. You and Donna and Funky Junk have inspired me to try it. Craigslist, here I come!
