Oh good Lord, this week was INSANE. Between last two weeks of school craziness at work, my husband being broken (sprained, whatever), and a bunch of job and moving related stress, I haven’t felt like I’ve had a spare second to sit down and just relax!
Thankfully though, it’s Friday, and I should have a good weekend ahead of me. My best friend is coming into town for the weekend, and next week is the last week of school, and then it’s SUMMER! I need a break so badly!
This week was a great week on Craigslist. I found more than a few things that I actually seriously considered buying, and one of them I’m still kind of regretting that I couldn’t pull the trigger!
There’s just something about this little patio set that I love. It’s a little more unique than a lot of the ones I’ve seen (maybe it’s the pattern?) but I envision it spray painted a bright yellow and given some fun cushions for the chairs. It would look SO cute in the amazing backyard of the dream house that Corey and I just found in Austin (but that’s a story for another day)
I love the base on this table! It would look so good painted white and plopped into a kitchen dining nook.
Sorry it’s sideways! I was too lazy to change it from the original post. I love the base on this one too, and I think it’s a lot more unique than most of the round tables I see on Craigslist.
Okay, just try to force yourself to look past the horrible finish, and you can see that this is an amazing piece of furniture. Corey and I very seriously tossed around the idea of getting it and turning it into a media console (or, as I wanted to do, turning it into a buffet for a dining room…except that we don’t have a dining room so that wouldn’t make much sense). I love, love, love this little guy, and I wish it would have worked out for us! Alas, it was too small for our media console, so it wasn’t really in the cards.
I adore the shape of this mirror! Paint it a fun color and put it above a dresser (I have just the one right after this!) and it would look amazing!
Ohhhhhh this dresser. I want it. BAD. I tried to talk Corey into getting it for me, but he brought up the (completely valid, but still annoying) point that since we don’t know how big of a place we’ll be living in come August, it seems like a bad idea to get furniture that’s bigger than what we already own, just in case it doesn’t fit. Boo for practicality. But I still love this dresser!
This is technically meant to be a media console, but I’d love to get it and add a couple of shelves here and there and turn it into an amazing bookcase! I’m always on the lookout for good bookcases to eventually replace our boring Ikea Billy ones, and this would fit the bill perfectly. It was a great price too, but unfortunately we have NO room for it in our house. Sigh. Story of my life these days.
I kind of have a thing for mirrored furniture right now. I only want one small piece of it, and I saw this right after we got back from Target and I drooled over some mirrored tables there. It’s super cute and a great little storage piece, but way out of our budget. Oh well, I have a feeling my love affair with mirrored furniture is probably a temporary thing, anyways!
And that concludes my favorite Friday Finds week so far! Love all the furniture this time around! Have a fantastic weekend, friends!
