Have I ever told you how much I love craigslist? I have been finding the best deals their lately. Check out my "new" file cabinet. This beauty was only 10 bucks. Bonus: The guy we bought it from was wearing a Star Wars t-shirt. Now for its makeover! There was no way I was going to let a boring black cabinet make it's way into my office. No, sirey! Bring on the the spray paint. And with this one project, I learned the importance of primer. Three cans of spray paint later... I have only found once place (not anywhere near my house...) that sells this color. So my total cost for this project was a little more than I originally anticipated. Worth it.

Last night, Andrew and I went and picked up this bad boy from a man that was cleaning out his parents' house. He was happy that I was hauling it away, and I was happy that it only cost me $10 and a 12-pack of Bud Light for my brother for letting me use his Jeep. Thanks, bro! (He also is letting me borrow his sander! Hooray! More on that later.) This beauty will be transformed into a kitty litter hideaway. BIG PLANS! I'm going to clear out it's innerds, cut a hole in the side, and get that thing out of my site! Now, to paint or not to paint? I can't decide...

What fun things do you like to look for on craigslist? I'm not on the hunt for a new desk. Isn't this fun?!?
