Friday morning I slept in. That's unusual but the rest of the day followed my normal pattern; start the coffee, feed my 3 cats, feed my outside cats (strays I take care of that now just live outside my house), pour big cup of coffee, plop myself in front of the computer, open yahoo mail, open etsy, open mac's mail, open craigslist. I look at Craigslist free section first, always.
Listed in my city was "Free Dresser" and I had a good feeling before I even opened it. Inside the ad was a very blurry, out of focus picture of a dresser indeed. I could barely make out what I thought was a peg leg so I wrote the contact. I'm thinking "No way this will be available. It's been up on CL for an hour". I got a reply back. Long story short, it was in fact a 1950's dresser and matching nightstand for free. I drove only about 2 miles to get it, loaded it up and now it's in my bedroom. I'm in love!
The best part, it's in incredible condition - like new. It's very well made with dovetail drawers and metal drawer slides. All wood of course with inlaid pattern to create a very subtle diamond in the center doors. It also came with a matching mirror. So, just like that, wake up one morning and now I have an incredible bedroom set for free. Now I just need to find a headboard......and a Danish bedside lamp.....and a new comforter....sheesh, it never ends huh? Good thing it's fun to hunt!
