Latest Craigslist Find

I love a good deal, that’s no secret. I have been on the lookout for a cute accent table, preferably a little quirky, with some metal on it to add a little shine to our living room. I mean accent tables are where you can be a little funky because they’re small and unexpected. We were in need of one next to our arm chair because when you’re sitting there, you have no where to put your drink unless you get up. (Little design tip for you when arranging furniture, don’t make your guests get up.) It’s gotta be small to fit in the room…even though I know our sofa and arm chair are over sized, but we’re working with what we have.

I refused to pay $70 plus dollars on a table that holds A DRINK! And that’s the least expensive one I could find that I liked, made out of plastic.

Craigslist served me well because I found these little guys (2 for $35)

And they are so super sturdy. I’m serious, we ask everyone who comes over to pick it up and see how heavy it is because you wouldn’t believe it for it’s size. A sturdy, heavy accent table is hard to find but so necessary. You don’t want to be reaching for your drink and knock the whole thing over.

I, of course, went spray paint crazy and sprayed them both gold.

They’re just what I was looking for, small, quirky and shiny.

Clearly we’ll have to do something about those cords…

We ended up buying two tables (she had 3 total) because having a pair can never be a bad thing, it was a great deal, and we needed a little table for our guest bedroom as well.

I’d love to know your favorite Craigslist or thrift find! Leave a note in the comments:-)
