The Mid-Century Jackpot

Last weekend we hit the mid-century furniture jackpot and I’m so giddy with excitement, I couldn’t help but share the find with you!

Mid Century 4

I’d been watching a posting on Craig’s List for about 3 months (apparently Abilene isn’t a hot bed of mid-century furniture lovers) and the seller had lowered the price from $350 to $225.

Mid Century 6

We arranged to meet the seller and after looking at the furniture and seeing that it was in really rough shape, the Craig’s List King offered him $150 for the whole set. . . . . . and he took it!

Mid Century 3

The set includes a chest of drawers, a night stand, a low dresser and this hutch will find a home in our Master bedroom renovation.

I’m not sure where the rest of it will end up just yet but I just couldn’t pass up these beauties. Did you see the gold, color blocked, tapered feet? The top drawers with recessed pulls? The hardware? I’m pretty sure it’s original and what’s left is in great shape.
