addicted to craigslist

I check Craigslist at least a few times per week -it's truly a treasure chest of deals and beautiful things! I have some items in mind that I'd like to find for our condo, but just can seem to find the time to go grab them - better yet, I don't have any where to put new things! With less than 1,000 sq. ft. in our condo space is tight to say the least. Mr. S is quite attached to his bachelor-pad furniture, and while we've made strides to compromise on new pieces that suit us both, I'm struggling with the last few items that I believe would really pull our place together. Here are few things that I have my eye on...

Nate Berkus Headboard
I've not pulled the trigger on a headboard because we have a beautiful gold mirror over our bed, but I'm salivating over this pretty number.

Gentleman's Chest
Mr. S has a MOUNTAIN of T-shirts that he can't seem to part with - I'd love to add a piece like this to our room to help him keep them more organized rather than stored under our bed.

Spello Chain Natural Rug
I love, love geometric prints and want a rug like this to add to define our "living room" space - but Mr. S is obsessed with a deep red oriental rug my parents gave us.

Mid Century Modern Sideboard
I'm looking for a TV stand that is long and has plenty of storage - I'm loving the mid-century modern lines these days

Sofa table/console
I don't know where on earth this would go, but I'm loving how rustic it is
 We have in the last few months purchased a new Restoration Hardware English Roll-Arm couch that we scored for $500!! After months, nay a year, of searching I found our perfect sofa - 91 l x 48 d x 34 h. We had impulse purchased a Haverty's sleeper that just didn't fit our overall look of our place and simply satisfied the sleeper sofa need and nothing more.

Then last week while Mr. S was away for work I scored this Crate and Barrel coffee table for $40 from a lovely family looking to get rid of the unsafe table because their triplets were beginning to walk & needed it gone quickly. The new glass table opens up our space and makes the sitting area feel larger - amen to glass in small spaces!
