{craigslist SCORE!}

As many of you know I love me some Craigslist and those close to me know my home is fully furnished from Craigslist, Thrifts Stores, Flea Markets, and Home Goods {and of course Anthropologie}.

Today, I am so excited to show you a piece I found on Craigslist and share how I got it. 

The room I am focused on today is my bedroom. 
My bedroom colors are yellow, black, white, grey, and a touch of purple, a little Hollywood Regency, Modern Twist.
When I decorate a bedroom I don't normally start with the nightstands but in this case I will make an exception. Why? Oh, because I found the two most AMAZING pieces. 

Yep that's right, isn't she lovely and the best part is she was only $75.00.

Now because this piece is original vintage from the 1960's-1970's era the possibility of finding another piece to match is near to impossible. I was thinking I was going to have to find a vintage side table that would go with this beauty and match the yellow with paint. 
Until, I was searching Craigslist last week and came across this magnificent vintage Hollywood Regency style night stand!
First off, the color could not be any more PERFECT, right! 
Second, REALLY, a Vintage Dorothy Draper style night stand has been a dream ever since I saw this credenza Vanessa De Vargas styled. You may have seen this shot on {DecorPad}.
I was secretly disappointed that there wasn't two nightstands so if I wanted to change things around later and turn it into a credenza like above, I could. However, I am not COMPLAINING!

The BEST part of this find is that I did not spend a penny. That's right! I ended up trading a different table that I no longer was using, it wasn't really my style anymore anyways. 
As many know, I am very budget minded when I shop like most of you are or having to be now. 
Today with the economy the way it is, people are having to downsize, losing their houses, and can't fit there stuff into the new place. 
The way I see it is, why not be creative and help each other out. It turns out to be a WIN, WIN for both of us! 
If I know I have something comparable to what they are selling. I will offer to trade. It may not always work but in this case I got LUCKY. 
This was too big for them and it was PERFECT for me! 

SHH! Don't tell anyone my secret but if you happen to try it out, you must leave me a comment and tell me all about it.
