For the last post of the year let’s try to find some DIY ready stuff on Craigslist. In Herndon Va, a three bulb chandelier was listed for $35 OBO. It includes a chain and cover plate for hanging. Some white paint and it would be ready for a girl’s room or a closet.
In New York City, this desk lamp was listed for $40. As it looks pretty dated I think there maybe some room for negotiation. To bring it up to date you could spray paint the base black or red or any other bright color and add a white drum shade.
In Chicago, you could buy 3 large paintings (56 x 33, 40 x 30, and 40 x 32) for $15 each. If you don’t care for the paintings you could paint over the canvas or reuse the frames.
In Modesto an end table that needs some paint love was up for grabs for $50.
If you are in the mood for a chair makeover you could try negotiating on this accent chair. The San Antonio seller is asking for $75 for it. By the looks of it this is going to be easier than my chair makeover. 🙂
What do you think? Are you up for some DIY?
