Craigslist & Thrifting Finds Link Party

I have been finding such great treasures on Craigslist and around town in different places that I thought it might be fun to do a little linky party! So if you have found some great treasures this summer at Yard Sales, Resale Shops, Antique Stores, Craigslist, the side of the road, the garbage dump, wherever, link it up! It can be something you’ve re-purposed or transformed or maybe something you are hoping to redo, anything goes! So come show off your finds and see what other people have found as well. I even made a little blog button for the party! I am thinking maybe we can do this once a month and see how it goes.
Since moving to a bigger city a few weeks ago, I have become a CL junky.  I stalk that thing and I’ve found some great things!  So today, I am sharing two of my finds with you.  The first one is actually from my friend, she was going to “get rid” of these side tables, possibly putting them out on the curb.  I came to their rescue and thought maybe they would like it at my house.  Here is the before:

After a light sanding, some primer and a few coats of Dark Walnut by Rustoleum, this is what they look like:

Just pretend you can’t see the lamp sitting on the floor in the background, it’s late and I had to take the picture in the dining room because the living room needs lamps that actually work and don’t just look cute.  Soon and very soon, I will have some light in there!  But I’m hopping down a rabbit trail, let’s get back to business!

So here are the rules to link up:

1.  Copy and paste the party button and add it to your post. The party button is on the right side of the blog.
2.  Please visit at least one other person’s link at the party and leave a comment. It’s fun to see what other people have found and share in their excitement too!

Ok, I’m really excited to see what you link up, so ready, set, go!

    Hi Ange! I linked up the only thing I had recently that involved something "thrifty" and it was a post that included some vintage suitcases I got for free. I think that counts as thrifty, huh? :-) I loved what you did with your table! Thanks for hosting my friend,

    It shouldn't surprise me that the first link up party you do, you already have 5 people. The times I had a link up party, only one person linked up. :( So I haven't held anymore. Maybe in the future after I have a bigger readership like yours…when I grow up…lol. I have a project I'm working on but is not complete to share here. Double drats! 😉

    I really love the dark walnut stain, Ange. It breathes new life into your table – the color looks so rich! I'm totally bummed that I don't have any trash turned treasures to share. I've been so busy that my stuff is still in the trash stage. I love the theme of your party!
