Say Hallo to the Gals

November 22, 2009

So it’s taken me almost a month to finally remember to take a picture of these Danish beauties because it gets dark so early! Both are Craigslist gems – not quite as cheap as I’d have liked ($600/$650), but they were funded by wedding $$$ so you know. The blue one is a collector’s piece by Borge Mogensen, one of the founding fathers of Danish design. You can check it here selling for $3,600 (its listed in Australian dollars). It just needs a little TLC. I threw some lemon oil on both of them once they were home and that already made a BIG difference. Someday we’ll refinish and reupholster them. Mmmmm…someday.

PS I bought the rusty-colored couch from a guitarist in this band. He’s the dude with the baby blue Strat

    inspirational. I really need to find gems on Craigslist, but it seems so damn hard.

      There’s usually decent stuff out there. It’s more about knowing what you want and how much you’re willing to pay. Plus having the Craigslist image previewer add-on for Firefox makes browsing waaaay easier.
