We'll get to the credenza in a bit. First up, I set myself a unique challenge: create a board made entirely of pieces under $100. We all know that Craigslist is a great place to find great values on things, but even if a piece is cheap for what it is, that doesn't mean that we can afford it. Most of my friends balk at spending any money at all on furniture, so here's proof that the broke twenty-something need not resort to IKEA...

Yup, that's a long one! I'm imagining this as the living/dining space of a little one-bedroom apartment. Next up, a space with much more pedigree and elegance: a cozy bedroom filled with gorgeous antiques:
|headboard, chair, dresser, lamp, rug|
The next was vaguely inspired by the eclectic, exotic Hollywood Regency aura of Charley's dressing room in the movie A Single Man. I know this one went around the blogs, and who wouldn't want to get dressed here every morning? (Those of you who haven't seen the movie, btw, should absolutely go rent it, and prepare to cry a lot.)
My version is for those of us who live in the real world and don't have the luxury of a separate dressing room. Use the chest as one nightstand and put the desk on the other side of the bed to use it as a vanity/nightstand/desk!
|desk, stool, headboard, chest|
Last but not least, Brandi's request: a CHEAP mid-century credenza with plenty of storage. Here's one option in this set, and look for some more links below!
|chairs, credenza, benches, cocktail table|
More credenza options (with some dressers and sideboards and other storage pieces mixed in): one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. It all depends on what sort of storage you're looking for...
Which room would you love to transport into your home if you could? And what city do you want to see next?
