Horchow for Craigslist Follow-Up

Let me start of by saying when I walked into the foyer (which was the size of my den) there was this cherry blossom wall paper up. BREATH. TAKING. The owner said she saw it in a Domino magazine and wrote to request who made it, then ordered it. Que the music "Must be niiice" (by Lyfe Jennings) Needless to say there were gorgeous furnishings everywhere!


And now I must say, I am the proud owner of these two mirrored chests. $300 for both was a heck of a deal. I did a pretend order on Horchow and it came out to some $1700 after delivery. Yeah Horchow my mother called, she said you can kick rocks for those prices.




So it gets even better. How can it get even better? Well let me tell you. I was trying to waste time while my Hubster grilled dinner by perusing Craigslist again. Jackpot! I found TWO bergere chairs in East Memphis (area I searched) for $100!! Here is the pic they provided.


Here they are in my Momma's living room. They were custom reupholstered, very well if I might say, and are in FAB condition! Get this, same seller! So it gets even better..shut the front door right?!

The seller emailed me some pics of other items they were selling. This chaise for $40 (click the highlighted words for original prices..duh right?) & so much more.

So when we went to pick up the bergere chairs the seller (husband this time) told us to just take the chaise for FREE!! (Though I had just handed him the $40 already :o( )And he asked if we had wanted this entertainment center for FREE too!! Don't let the shabby pic fool you. This set is Fantabulous. I'm actually taking a break from repainting it to write this post. Hubster thinks it's perfect for my son's room.


He didn't want to lug it up to their 2 tier attic...yes folks 2 tiers. Que that music again. I got another email from the seller with some pics attached of a buffet & chest. She also had a Natuzzi leather (sofa, love seat, chair & ottoman) set for $200, a little girl's custom painted bedroom set, and more. If only I had the room.

p.s.
We had to drive home that night! We didn't get home until 3:30 a.m., unloaded the truck by 4 a.m. and hubby got 1 hour of sleep before getting up for work at 5 a.m. But as my mom has said before, "It was such a good deal though." That's another Craigslist story though.

i'm loving the nightstands even more, and the chairs are amazing. i can't wait to see what you do.

Now that is an awesome deal! WOW. People are just so generous sometimes. That chaise is adorable.

Wow...what a story...such great prices for such wonderful pieces...you hit the jackpot! Cannot wait to see what you do with all of the beautiful pieces. Your husband is like mine...mine would be able to go to work too after such a small amount of sleep. I'd still be sleeping now and probably get sick for a week! Middle age is not treating me well.

Good grief! Where are all of these deals in Greenville, SC?! Nothing good here! I love that wallpaper too - so much so that I painted a two piece panel on plywood to frame and put in my living room. And, by the way, my husband would have told me I was nuts if I had asked him to drive that far to pick something up - your hubby rocks!!

You've got to be kidding!! You are going to have a house full. It might be time to market yourself as a personal CL shopper!

Oh my gosh Adrianna. Those chests are fantastic! The chairs are gorgeous too. The chaise for free?!! AND the entertainment center?

You are my hero.

I can't wait to see what color you are painting the entertainment center.

I can't get over the deal you got! Nothing feels quite like scoring a great deal on something that you would buy at regular price (If you had the $ to buy it, of course!)
