The Find

I've read many blogs where people would tote the wonders of furniture they discovered from Craig's List. I never find anything good in my neck of the woods. I was starting to think that really there wasn't any great furniture to be found via this route. Well, man did I luck out. I was searching for a bookcase and I came across this bookcase/credenza. Now, a good solid credenza has been on my wish list for the past few years, so to get a two- for- oner like this is such a find for me!

The Score

This isn't the most spectacular photos of it, but I just wanted to give a peeksy. I plan to repaint a set of mirror a bright color and show it off a bit more. Even a peak to how many binders this thing can store (onewards of twenty at least).

The Score

Oh yeah, it is seven feet long and I carried it up three flights of stairs and navigated through a tiny kitchen - just my boyfriend and I.

That is quite a find! And that must have been some serious navigating to get it up to your house!
