This dresser is not from Craigslist. But it is still awesome and I have grand plans for it. Really, I'm showing it to you to give you some perspective on how awesome the thing I did get from Craigslist is.
This beautiful monster is taller than that awesome dresser and it was $30! I saw it on Craigslist last week. It had been listed on May 24th for $50. I figured there was no way it was still available (I hate it when people don't delete their sold postings on Craigslist because you get all excited only to find out it already sold). But then I get an email from the seller telling me that not only is it still available but that I can have it for $30.
Now. I never intended to pay $50 for it but I have to admit having the deal made for me caught me a little off guard. And, I guess, for that reason it never occured to me to ask for dimensions.
When we went to pick it up my husband was the first to lay eyes on her. He promptly walked back to the car and said, 'J. You have to see this. I don't think it's going to fit'. What? I drive an SUV. Granted there are groceries and a stroller in the back but how can it not fit? Then I saw that monster box.
And I thought our table (seating for 10) was going to be the centerpiece of the room. Well, Sheila's got some competition!
