Craigslist Again

I guess there is no rhyme or reason to when I post my finds from Craigslist.  I hope you all don’t mind my randomness.  I try to include photos of how to use the pieces when I have a clear vision of what the could be when time allows.  Tonight, time allows.  Enjoy!

$160 for the pair

Perhaps give them a makeover like this:

$100, this needs a coat of paint as well. Perhaps a crazy color or a nice gold

$20 each, not sure of the quality of the brass (?) on these. Again, they could be painted or maybe some rub and buff to jazz them up.


That hutch needs to go in the study at this house.

$350 for the set

Reminds me of this from Grange

$70 for the pair, new cushions required.

Like these McGuire chairs from


Used like this (I know the tables are nothing alike, but I think the one above could be glammed up something fierce!):


Use it like this:


$2700, If you have a stash of money ready for some outdoor furniture buy this set!

$375 - 8' x 10'


Use it like this:




$150 for pair of twin headboards

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.
