I am beginning to love Craigslist. We bought a coffee table today for $35. Just $35! Granted, it’s mostly plywood, it’s a little scratched, and one of the legs wobbles. But that just makes me feel better about my plans to paint it. I can’t make it much worse, can I?
Here are some photos of the table in our living room:
We exchanged a few e-mails with a university student, M, and met him at his apartment to pick up and pay for the table. He let us into his apartment to look at the table. We looked and said, OK, we’ll take it. He was also trying to sell some lamps, but we weren’t interested.
M told us he was moving to Boston to get his master’s degree in philosophy, and that’s why he was selling his stuff. He thought we were university students, too. Do we look that young, still?
Now I’m off to the store for spray paint and supplies. Stay tuned for the makeover!
