I had been reading several blogs lately where people were finding some pretty nifty stuff on Craigslist. I admit it...I started getting a bit envious. I had never had any luck buying things on Craigslist. Every time I would find something I liked, it would end up being sold. I finally figured out the trick to finding treasures on Craigslist. You have to check it out EVERY DAY.
So even though I wasn't looking for something specific, I decided to quickly scroll through the local listings every day JUST IN CASE I might miss something nifty! And lo and behold I came upon a treasure! This cute metal vintage grocery store display. Isn't it adorable? I purchased this little cutie for $35. I think it was a bargain! Sorry, folks, this won't be for sale. This is for ME! Well, for NOW anyway!
And I had the perfect spot for it in a little room off the living room. We could never agree on what to call this little room....breakfast room, den, little TV room...anyway, the display is now a magazine rack! I was thinking about putting a small bookshelf in there for books and magazines but this turned out to be an even better option! I plopped one of the kettles up there for now...just because it was red and I hadn't put them away yet.
Oh and for those of you who are following my new style transformation, this also fits my new style (being metal) but because it is red it fits into THIS room . This room is red and mustard yellow. While the living room is blue with mustard yellow.
