Craigslist Danger

I am in danger of becoming only a Craigslist blogger, but I found some great stuff today and HAD to share.

$150 - yeah, awesome coffee table.

Use it like this desk from Million Dollar Decorators this week (photo from MFAMB)

Cute stools from Design Within Reach, $150 each. Doesn't say how many are available.

$275 - Needs some repair.

$50 for 6 pieces. These would be great for entertaining or for accessorizing places in my/your home.

$25. Randomly, my dad has a rocking chair exactly like this. I would love to buy this one so someday I might have a pair.

I don't feel like rotating someone's crappy photo, but I think this chair is perfection. Perhaps the seat needs to be cleaned, but the color is beautiful. - $50

No price listed

Use it like this


$100- This table has water damage and is virtually useless without a major makeover. I would offer less.

$300. I LOVE this daybed/sofa. It was vetoed by my husband, so it won't be living at my house, but I have great vision for it!

$35 for the pair. Great lines!

$50 for all four. These could fit into most any space with the right upholstery and paint job.

$75. The fabric is a bit cute, but I am still digging it.

How gorgeous would this desk be lacquered in black or white or gold? $50.

$250 for the desk and chair. I love the look of the patina on the desktop, makes me wonder what wonderful letters or novels have been written on this desk, gives me a very Ernest Hemingway vibe.

$700 - SOMEONE splurge on this and send me a photo of where it ends up - loveliness!

$50 - this used to be in a Betsy Johnson boutique. I want it in my fantasy closet/dressing room. Or how great would it be in a single girls apartment?

So, that’s it.  My goal for tomorrow is to iron a ton of my husbands shirts, reserve some fabric and get cuttings for approval for a client and write a post that isn’t about CL.  See you then!


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    That rocker is identical to the one we (do you think your dad still has it?) had. Can’t remember where we bought it, it always had a cushion on the seat.
