Craigslist Finds Part I

  • Item: Chrome and laminate Diner table (cracked ice pattern) with 4 vinyl (crushed velvet pattern?) and chrome chairs , with leaf in near perfect condition
  • Era: 1940's or 50's
  • Favorite part about it: Not one rip in the vinyl... amazing. The story is good, too. We bought it off of Craigslist from a couple who had just purchased the property where it was left. Previously a 90 year old Norwegian couple owned it and kept it in a cabin for 50 years, hardly ever using it.
  • Price: $200 (not a steal but a deal).
  • Please disregard the yellow walls in the kitchen... they'll be gone soon.






And here's a bonus picture. Dogs had fun while we were being boring to them...

Payback. Our dog gives us "the look" when we are starting our project for the day. I do feel guilty at times for not spending enough time playing with her. She knows it too.
