Lyndon's Craigslist Find

Since Santa brought Lyndon a Wii he needed something different to house his tv, Wii supplies, and games.  I knew I wanted a 1970s styled dresser so I began looking on craigslist.  Most of the ones I found and liked where too long for this space until I found this one.  The owner told me it came from Germany when her brother's family was in the service; however, it appears to be an American furniture maker judging by the name.  After some paint and 'beating-up' it works perfect in Lyndon's room.  All of his Wii and sports cards, trinket helmets and things are in the drawers on the right and science toys, games, and play trinket-y stuff is in the drawers on the left.  Cody and I were amazed how HEAVY this piece of furniture is.

& the Before!


  1. I love it! Looks great and looks like it fits just right. Craigs list is a great place to buy stuff!

  2. That's a great find. It looks so much better!

  3. Audra,

    Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog this morning. I was so behind, so that's all I did for like two hours last night. I love doing it, though!

    I'm just so jealous of all your Craigslist finds. I am addicted to Craigslist and if I lived closer to the DFW area I would have a garage full of stuff. Did you find any of your pieces around here or do you have to go around DFW?

    Your restoration of the pieces is awesome. You just are so talented!

    You may have already seen this blog, but it belongs to Justin Davis (Pam and Dirk Davis' daughter). Thought you might like it, too.

    Have a great weekend!

    P.S. Yes, Layton said the ride wasn't very much fun!
