I would be all over this 'butlers console' found craiglist. Id paint the base a rocking shade and use it for all the odds and ends that seem to pile up on the dining room table. (The price seems a bit high to me but maybe the seller is willing to negotiate?)
Unfortunately , Im not a hoarder (ha! don't think i've uttered that thought before) and I already have something very much like this already so I don't need another.
Check out my DIY mail center to read all about it.
On a completely unrelated note Im quite impressed with this sellers bold choice in wall color. Too bad my eyes are bleeding from the carpet!
Have you restrained yourself from scooping up some craigslist or flea market find? How do you stay disciplined?
