Condition: Not described

Pair of Drexel nightstands:

Asking: $120
Condition: “Beautiful.”
Dimensions: 24 1/2″ W x 24 1/2″ T x 18″ D
Location: Baltimore, MD
Thoughts: The orange background is reflecting on them in the photo, and that was throwing me at first, but I think in a non-orange, eclectic bedroom these would look cool and not dated.

antique side tables with spool legs
Asking: $150
Condition: “Very good.”
Dimensions: 15″ W x 15″ D x 27″ T
Location: Fairfax, VA

Pair of MCM upholstered benches:
pair of MCM bench stools
Asking: $260
Condition: “Benches in good to very good vintage condition. A few light stains, but they are not too noticeable unless looking closely.”
Dimensions: 23″ W x19″ D x 19″ H
Location: Catonsville, MD
Thoughts: I’m not crazy about the fabric (it looks a little dated to me), and the price is high if you were going to reupholster them, but the shape is great. And the seller is right, these are very versatile.

Asking: $100

My bedroom has a little nook between two closets.  It’s the best spot for my bed, and I really like the whole setup–except that there’s no space bedside tables.  Thus I always have a random assort of things on the floor next to me: a book, a water bottle, my cell phone, etc.  It’s less than ideal, but it’s really the only option right now.  Someday I’ll be a real grown-up with a nightstand, but until then, these CL finds are all for you:

Coral nightstand:

Asking: $15
Condition: “Great”

Location: Unidentified Northern VA location
Thoughts: Adorable.

1950s chest of drawers nightstand
Asking: $75
Condition: “Excellent”
Dimensions: 30″T, 30″W, 18″D
Location: Rockville, MD
Thoughts: A little extra storage never hurt anyone.

Black floral nightstand:
black floral nightstand
Asking: $220
Condition: “Excellent”
Dimensions: 28″L, 18″D, 27″H
Location: McLean, VA
Thoughts: Not really my style, but I could easily get behind this choice for someone else.

Asking: $20
Condition: “Fair” …”Has some minor water damage on the top”
Dimensions: 26″W, 15″D, 22″H
Location: Dupont Circle, DC
Thoughts: Not a bad choice if you like cleaner lines / no pulls.

Asking: $100

Brass and mirrored nightstand:
brass and mirror accent table
Asking: $175
Condition: “New” (but also says “refinished”)
Dimensions: 15″W, 15″D, 22″H
Location: Centreville, VA
Thoughts: Delightful, if a little pricey for CL.

John Robshaw duvet cover from Anthro:
John Robshaw queen duvet cover
John Robshaw duvet detail
Asking: $80 (includes the two Euro shams)
Condition: “In great condition… I did snag the bottom button enclosure and blue detail thread near the middle, but you can’t see it when it’s on the bed.”
Dimensions: Queen
Location: SE DC
Thoughts: It was originally $400 at Anthropologie, so $80 is totally fair. The colors/design aren’t too feminine or too masculine, so I think it would be a good option for a couple.

Rams head coffee table:
rams head coffee table
Asking: $250 
Condition: Not described, except to say that the finish is spray paint (i.e. possibly cheap looking) and the glass is heavy (i.e. not cheap).
Dimensions: 4’6″ L x 25″ D x 17″ H
Location: Arlington, VA
Thoughts: Cool piece… I like her idea of stripping the spray paint though. And while she makes a pretty good argument for the price, I’d still probably offer no more than $200.

Yellow chevron pillows:
yellow chevron pillows
Asking: $20 for 2
Condition: “In excellent condition”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Arlington, VA
Thoughts: To be honest, I’m a little tired of the chevron trend, but people keep telling me that they love it and I’m here to please. Plus, these ones are so cheerful (and pretty cheap!), so I thought I’d share.

Reclaimed wood and iron coffee table:
reclaimed wood and iron coffee table
Asking: $100
Condition: A few scratches/marks in one corner
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Eastern Market, DC
Thoughts: It’s a little sketchy because they ordered this coffee table, and the company sent a second because it had a few marks, but never collected the original. I’d feel a little bad capitalizing on their mistake, but if that kind of thing doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable, this is an awesome little table for a great price.

Peacock chair and matching side table:
peacock chair and matching side table
Asking: $125
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: Chair is 56″ H; table is 21″ H, 18″ in diameter
Location: Fairfax, VA
Thoughts: These gems from the ’70s seem to be everywhere on the internet (seriously, there are entire Pinterest boards devoted to them!), probably because of their funky, sculptural design. I’ve never sat in one, so I can’t speak to their comfort, but they’d be very fun addition to a sunroom, porch or even a bedroom. And if nothing else, they’re the thing for a bohemian-inspired photo shoot.

Beer can coffee table:
beer can coffee table
Asking: $150 Reduced to $125
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 41″ W x 31″ D x 18″ H
Location: Fairfax City, VA
Thoughts: Would I ever allow this into my home? Probably Absolutely not. But I can’t deny that it’s got some kitchy vintage charm.

Lobster pot coffee table:
lobster pot coffee table
Asking: $100
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 14.75″ H x 34.75″ W x 21″ D
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: While I’m generally not into themes, “nautical” is the one that can still win me over (must be because I was a New England baby). This guy could be very cool in the right nautical/coastal space.

Lighted/mirrored coffee table:
lighted mirrored coffee table on
lighted mirrored coffee table off
Asking: Part of a larger, $390 set that include the coffee table, a side table and a mirror
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 41” W x 22″D x 17″ H
Location: Manassas, VA
Thoughts: If the cheesy oak was painted, these might look cool… maybe? Probably not, but I’m intrigued by them nonetheless. (OK, in all honesty, the only piece I’d actually consider from the set is the funky town mirror, so I might as well show that…)

In my humble opinion, all of these are pretty darn good deals, even if they do need a bit of work:

Bamboo shelving unit:
bamboo shelving unit
Asking: $40
Condition: “Great condition except for a nearly invisible crack at the top”
Dimensions: 70″ H, 35″ W, 15.5″ D
Location: Silver Spring, MD
Thoughts: Imagine it styled with something more attractive than toys.

Asian end tables:
asian end table
Asking: $65 each (there are two available)
Condition: “Excellent”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Rockville, MD
Thoughts: The golden oak does nothing for me, but imagine them painted or stained darker.

Matching bamboo etageres:
bamboo etagere
Asking: $80 for the pair Reduced to $60
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 70″ T, 30″ W
Location: Woodbridge, VA
Thoughts: I know, a second listing for a bamboo shelving unit in the same post–lame. BUT this one comes with a mate. I’d paint them something bright and fun, and use them in a kid’s room or playroom (kinda like this).

Pair of mint green stools:
mint stools
Asking: $30 OBO (for the pair, I think)
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 2.5′ tall
Location: Capitol Hill, DC
Thoughts: If the price is per stool, these are much less interesting to me, but if it’s for both (with the option to negotiate down), I think they’d be adorable for holding plants and/or as side tables, indoors or out.

Red IKEA PS media cabinet:
red IKEA PS media locker
Asking: $45 Reduced to $35
Condition: “Excellent condition minus a few minor and barely noticeable dents”
Dimensions: 47″ W x 16″ D x 25″ H
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: I usually avoid posting about IKEA pieces, just because they’re already pretty cheap and easy to come by, but I’ve always had a thing for this little guy, and $45 is easier for me to stomach than $99.

Set of brass nesting tables:
faux bamboo brass nesting tables
Asking: $100 Raised to $150
Condition: “Slight oxidation freckling in a few spots … but not very noticeable”
Dimensions: Largest table is 21″ L x 13.25″ W x 20.5″ H; smaller tables fit underneath
Location: Leesburg, VA
Thoughts: Brass + faux bamboo detail + feminine lines … obviously I want these.

Blue velvet corner sofa:
blue velvet corner sofa
Asking: $45 
Condition: “No stains/rips/tears”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Glover Park, MD
Thoughts: It’s already in my #1 favorite fabric. For $45, what do you really have to lose?

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! Mine was a pretty fantastic way to wrap up a fantastic summer. Didn’t leave much time for CLing though, so here’s another very random grouping:

Pair of Thayer-Coggin barrel chairs:
Pair of Thayer-Coggin Barrel Chairs
Thayer-Coggin Barrel Chairs detail
Asking: $450 (for the pair)
Condition: ”In excellent condition”
Dimensions: 27″ x 39″
Location: Potomac, MD
Thoughts: $225/piece for decent living room chairs is not bad, and Thayer-Cogin chairs can go for much more.  These aren’t OMG-amazing, but I think the pleating makes them special, and they’re in a good neutral gray, so they’d make good anchor pieces.

Modern wood dinette table:
modern wood dinette table
Asking: $30 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 48″ in diameter; 29″ high
Location: Falls Church, VA
Thoughts: I like the mix of the modern shape and the rustic wood grain. Not to mention the fact that it costs less than a J.Crew t-shirt.

Botanical-print valances:
calico corners botanical print valances
Asking: $275 (for 2)
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: The one pictured above is 87″ L by 18″ T;  the smaller one is 45″ L x 18″ T
Location: NW DC
Thoughts: Custom-made window treatments are expensive, but these pretties are still too high for CL, IMHO. They’re dependent on a buyer who happens to have two windows (and only two windows) in the same dimensions (and the same taste, of course). I do love that fabric though.

Teal and orange desk/vanity:
teal desk/vanity
teal desk/vanity detail
Asking: $160
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 42″ W x 17.5″ D x 28.5″ H
Location: Sterling, VA
Thoughts: They’re selling this as a desk, but I think I’d use it as a vanity, with a mirror mounted on the wall. It just looks like the perfect place to store jewelry and other fun trinkets.

It’s been about 9 months since I last posted. A lot’s happened in that time–new job, new boyfriend, some running PRs, a bit of travel, and plenty of fun times–but I won’t bore you with excuses. Let’s just get back to it, shall we?

I’m helping a friend design a room for her daughter, and I was poking through CL looking for treasures. Here are some good finds that just don’t make the cut for this particular project:

 MCM Coffee Table:
coffee table
Asking: $110
Condition: One “blemish” (looks like a ring from a wet class), but as the poster says, it could easily be hidden by coffee table books.
Dimensions: 37″ in diameter and 17″ in height
Location: Fairfax Station, VA
Thoughts: Beautiful piece for an excellent price.

Pair of Industrial Parts Bins / Shelving Units:
industrial shelving
Asking: $1500 for the one on the left; $1100 for the one on the right; $2200 for the pair
Condition: Cleaned. Otherwise perfectly imperfect.
Dimensions: 7′ tall by 3′ wide
Location: Leesburg, VA
Thoughts: It the right space, these could be amazing. They remind me of the playroom in this project by Emily Henderson.

Previously Featured Dining Room Set:
Dining Room Set
Asking: $600–includes china cabinet, buffet (click through to see), mirror (click through to see), table with two extensions, and six chairs.
Condition: Not described.
Dimensions: N/A
Location: DC
Thoughts: When I posted this way, way back, they were asking $1000, which I thought was fair. Now it’s an absolute steal. Sometimes it pays to wait it out!

Confession: I’ve spent way more time perusing the Missed Connections pages of CL than the furniture lately. I realize that makes me a bit of a weirdo, but they’re seriously easy to get sucked into! About a month ago, I had my first (and currently only) “Missed Connection” encounter, where afterward I regretted not exchanging numbers or contact information. I actually posted a Missed Connection ad (you all probably think I’m at unspeakable levels of weird now …), but alas, nothing came of it. I mean, some random emails from strangers who were not The Stranger came of it, but I’m not quite that weird, so I ignored those. But even after my hopes of finding my Stranger subsided, I was still hooked on Missed Connections. The postings are fascinating, and I have this bizarre hope that I’ll see one that refers to someone I know.

Anyway, this was my first foray back into furniture, and these pieces caught my eye:

Bolivian blanket ottoman:
Furbish Ottoman

Asking: $250 [No longer available.]
Condition: Excellent; only a few month old
Dimensions: 32″ wide x 20″ high x 27″ deep
Location: Dupont, DC
Thoughts: I love these South American blankets because I’m a huge fan of stripes, they’ve always got great colors and they’re perfectly imperfect. And the well-traveled look is always a bonus too. This ottoman is pricy, but unique and cool. It’s also from every blogger’s favorite store.

Tan Plycraft lounger:
tan Plycraft lounger
Asking: $400 [No longer available.]
Condition: Not described; looks like normal vintage wear to me.
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Great Falls, VA
Thoughts: I’m pretty sure this is a Plycraft, the knockoff of the famous Eames lounger. It has the telltale extra leg on the base. I’ve never sat in a real Eames, but I have a black Plycraft and it’s incredibly comfortable. $400 for the set is not unreasonable. I think that’s about what I paid, and mine was from the much cheaper Richmond CL.

Altar table:
altar table
Asking: $350 [No longer available.]
Condition: Very well made; not otherwise described
Dimensions: 90″ long x 36″ high x 15.75″ deep
Location: Georgetown, DC
Thoughts: Altar tables are one of my favorite kinds of tables. They’re such a good balance of understated elegance and cool global eclecticism, don’t you think?
