Craig's List

I really adore Craig's List. After a few months of looking, I just found a great dining table set for less than just the chairs would cost to buy new, and I got a gorgeous table in fabulous condition to boot.

I've been looking for a set in the $250-500 range with six chairs and a smallish table that has leaves. This one hit the jackpot and it looks like it will be a great match for my buffet and has the same claw feet as our coffee table. The only thing I need to do is recover the chairs (not because they're in bad condition, but just because I don't care for the fabric), but that should be as easy as a Saturday afternoon at home curled up with some new fabric and a staple gun.

It's a funny thing too. Although I've been cooped up in the office all week, I've actually managed to buy more stuff than I have in the preceeding 2 months. Lee was selling his older iPod, so I snatched it, and I finally ordered my new KitchenAid Mixer, which after discounts, rebates, gift certificates, and grandma and grandpa's Christmas contribution comes to a whopping $44 out of pocket.

P.S. Anyone with a truck wanna help me pick this up on Saturday or Sunday?
