stealing ideas for you and me..

as you all know susie at eye spy does her craigslist thing for all of us in atlanta and she is amazing at it. how else would i have found my awesome bar cart (which is coming along nicely i might add..just needs some finishing touches, a shiny coat of love and the hardware should be here today!! so a few more days for the reveal please and thank you) where in the fuck was i?? oh yes...craigslist finds..susie has inspired me to find some workable pieces for those of you in the atlanta area..


marble and wood table- 100 bucks!!
someones entry needs this! get it and then email me so that i can help you style it up!!



bamboo occasional chair- 75 bucks!!!
this chair is perfect for that one spot in your house that needs something not too big, not too small and everyone needs an extra chair. BUY it and then email me so we can discuss finish and fabric options!



mid century eye back chairs-100 bucks for both!!! (whaaaa???)
painted glossy white with pink velvet seat cushions, yes and done.




and also have you all seen this???
yes, that's a homemade imperial trellis stencil...


yes that's a bedroom wall being stenciled with said homemade imperial trellis stencil..

That STENCIL!!! People never cease to amaze me with their clever creativity - bravo (I'm heading over there to see the deets)
And YOU - new consulting endeavor, perhaps?? Rock on with it, I'd pay you!

Well, well, Susie has some serious competition I see. Between the two of you I'm in big trouble. Those are some
mighty fine finds Miss Jenny!

And that stencil blows.my.mind. I saw it this weekend too and was bowled over. Wowza.

Thanks for the link love, woman!

Just so you know, it's been a RIDICULOUS project. And I still have another wall to do! I will update sometime when I have a minute.

I can't believe the stuff you find on Atlanta Craigslist. If you'd like a nice victorian mantel (ugh), you might try Charlotte. Thinking it might be time to head a bit more South. i love your blog, so wonderful to read and see your pics. I've given you the Sunshine Award to recognize your imagination -- pop over to HollyGoesLightly when you get a free moment to claim your award and spread some warmth.

Balls. That imperial trellis is so good it makes me want to nap.
Loving your new consulting/ebay racket over here! Get it gurl.

I want to move to Atlanta just so I can snatch up your Craigslist treasures. I mean seriously---that entry table for $100?! Packing my bags... XO

Wow....you are really good! I may take pictures of my den and see what you can tell me to get. I can't drive to atlanta from nc but you could tell me what to buy. You are sooooo good!

the atl craigslist is far superior to my little charleston craigslist--jealous!

sketch42 said...

Seriously, I had that idea when I first moved in because I didnt want to bounce for the paper... I actually bought the razor and started making the stencil. Thats about where I gave up!!!

Its crazy and really AWESOME that someone actually did it!

Just A Girl said...

STENCIL!!!! Maybe I could make one like the Darcy wallpaper I'm obsessed with...hmmm. That is genius

Appletree said...

Creative Coquette said...

Holy Smokes! I think I might be too lazy for stenciling the whole wall but it's fantastic!!! Big props mama.

Tamstyles said...

susie q said...

Wow! Great Craigslist finds! Let's wring that old Craigslist dry!

And stencil -- no way. I'm way too impatient. I'd end up slicing my wrists with my Exacto blade.

La Dolfina said...

OMG I go crazy every time susie posts her list love of Craigslist finds. I'm so crazed over the fab shit that she comes across. Do the people in Atlanta know how good they have it???
I'm looking forward to following your blog... it's my first time here and I think I'm going to stay awhile!!

with a steady hand and patience of steel someone could save a lot of money using that stencil.
