I think I've mentioned the card catalogue look before, but no dresser themed Homeless Housewares would be complete without it. Also, I recently ran across an amazing resource for card catalogue hardware: Schoolhouse Eclectic. $20 for the dresser and $32+ for the hardware, add a little paint? You've got a fabulous card catalogue inspired dresser for about $80!

2. 1950's Antique Dresser - $180
This is a good example of a craigslist find you should go for if you're in love with it or already have the supplies to DIY it up on hand. $180 is a totally totally fair price for this piece, but if you start adding the cost of new hardware or paint you'll be looking at a much steeper final price tag. Always remember to estimate the final cost of a c-list DIY before you drive out to make the purchase.
3. Solid Oak End Table - $60
I love this little guy because I think it's the homeliest looking of the group. What if.... you gave him a coat of paint, changed up the hardware, and... painted a portrait silhouette on that little oval! How fun and unique! I have to be honest, it's over priced for the work you would have to put in, but keep an eye on it the price might come down :)

4. 5 Drawer Dresser - $15
And finally, a totally blank slate. Bam $15. It's saying "do whatever you want, I'm game for an adventure." If you're looking for a project this is the price you're looking for. Just make sure the piece you grab is a) the right dimensions for your room and b) made of solid wood.
