Day 8 - More New Chairs

I bought some new chairs. They were $35 on Craigs List (for the pair!). They are a great pair of bamboo Chippendale, Hollywood Regency chairs. I had plans to paint them a glossy black and use them at the head and foot of my dining room table. Wouldn't that be nice? Unfortunately they are a bit narrow and my fat behind doesn't fit comfortably into the chairs. Womp womp. So I'm selling them on eBay for hopefully a nice profit.


  1. Just out of curiosity, what are the searches that you generally do on craigslist? I usually do "vintage," "bamboo," "Asian," etc. - but just wondering if you had anything different?

    1. Thanks for reading!

      I search for oriental, oriential, Asian, Chinese, Japanese, bamboo, rattan, wicker (but you get Wicker Park also). I'm currently looking for a chandelier, dining chairs and glass end tables so always those. I like to try gold or old in furniture. Walnut is always good for MCM furniture. Art Deco is fun because people don't seem to know what that is and you get all sorts of interesting things. Sometimes I will randomly search for pink but you get lots of kid clothes.
