SOLD!! New Craigslist Treasure! Vintage Apple RED wood Dresser with Anthropologie hardware!

I'm crazy for Red lately, what can I say?  Just posted this Vintage Apple Red, solid wood dresser, on Craigslist, here in Los Angeles!  This is a very nice, very solid piece that I think would look great in a retro chic home.  To see the craigslist ad, go here:

Don't you love RED? Red Campaign Desk in Etsy Treasury!

Been busy as a bee lately, working on new projects and hunting for vintage furniture in need of a new lease on life, so, I have LOTS to catch up on here in the upcoming weeks.  Just wanted to mention, though, that my Red Campaign Desk was included in a great new Treasury by a very interesting Etsy Seller out of Pennsylvania, Melissa Mitchell, whose Etsy shop,  Green Home Road, takes recycled materials and furniture pieces and gives them a much needed and bright new hairdid!

Her Treasury is called, "Red Hot Home!" (which is an awesome title, methinks), and includes some of my favorite pieces on Etsy, like the hand painted Sherpa stool (below), by Etsy seller Fauxkiss 

and the Block Printed Lamp Shade by Etsy seller, HomeSweet

Melissa has some very cool, very recycled and tres chic pieces of furniture, in her Etsy shop, Green Home Road, that are (as my dad would say, in his Brooklyn accent) "bee-yootiful!"

Check out her Rustic Recycled Old Door Coffee Table made out of an antique, solid wood, frame and panel door!  Very creative and muy sustainable!

And then, there is the piece of resistance (or should I say, least resistance), her "Little Red Table That Could," a nice little, vintage, demi-lune number with turned legs and a red lacquer finish (nice job on the finish Melissa!--it's very challenging to get such a nice, smooth finish with lacquer and Melissa did a great job).  Love that red!  And I love saying "RED Lacquer!"  Just saying it makes you smile like a loon! (that and the vanilla latte I just drank).  I think the "Little Red Table That Could," could (as the Dude would say) really tie a room together.

Check out more great RED pieces and the rest of her Etsy Treasury here: Red Hot Home!

Thanks for the include Melissa and for such a nice treasury!
