7 Maine Craigslist Finds For Your Fixer Upper
In this era of HGTV goodness, who hasn't become more than a little obsessed with fantasizing about renovating and furnishing our own run-down house someday? I know I think about it constantly, and find myself cruising fixer uppers on real estate websites and saving posts with cool furnishings even though I know they'll be long gone by the time I could actually pull my life together and buy a house someday. Still, it doesn't hurt to get a feel for what's out there, right? I've discovered Maine Craigslist has a wealth of quirky cool Joanna Gaines-worthy finds. Take a look at these one-of-a-kind gems. Can't you just imagine them wiped down and dusted off, with a shiplap background?!
This Antique 'Zero' Fan ($30)
With this retro fan, you'd be cooler than you've ever been in your life.
It doesn't matter where it leads; just climbing there would be an adventure in itself. And think of how many towels it could decoratively store!
This Wise Old Typewriter ($70)
The better to type out vintage love notes with, my dear.
Whether it's holding it out the back door to see what that sound was, or perching it beside some old books on some built-ins, this lantern is sure to literally and metaphorically light up your life.
This Old Metal Sign ($75)
Because what's better than some false advertising in your living room?
This may look a bit rough on the edges, but I can just hear some HGTV goddess saying, "gimme some polish and paint and we'll have this back to its former glory in no time."
Classic Wooden Sleds ($75)
With these perched in the corner, you'll have the best part of winter with you all year round!
