Homeless Housewares: adopt a rug!

1. Office Conference Table and 3 Chairs - $50
2. Retro 2 Chair Set - $80

Two super deals on craigslist this time! To get three chairs for $50 or two for $80 is a pretty fabulous deal any day - especially if you also like the color of these chairs (which I happen to). If you don't like the color, the cost reupholstery would still keep you in the realm of totally reasonable price. A particular reason I wanted to point out #1 is that it's listed with a conference table. Well maybe you don't want a conference table. What do to? Buy it anway and resell the table for super cheap! If you listed the table for $15 it would probably go in a few days. Then you would have 3 great chairs for only $40 dollars! Don't want three chairs? Sell the ones you don't want. Selling one more for $15 would get you a set of two unique chairs for only... $25!!!! Don't be afraid to resell things you don't want!

3. Chest of Drawers - $85

I'm not thrilled at the $85 price tag for this one... I'm thinking more like $60 max. But if you could talk them down, this would be a super cute candidate for an ombre effect like this... (to the right there).

4. 5x8 Abstract Rug - $50

Rugs for $50 are a pretty good deal, especially if they're in good condition. If you've ever gone rug shopping, you know the prices can be a real shock. Why not just snag one second hand? Too traditional for you? If you're brave, you could take on an ambitious DIY like this one...

I'm dying to try it!!!


For those of you new to Homeless Housewares: I don't sell these things -  I just think they're great buys with a lot of potential. Hopefully you're inspired to search your local craigslistings, OR to find these pieces, search the San Diego craigslist furniture listings using the titles above. Maybe you can snatch these up before someone else does!
