Ever since I saw this brass shelf I have been obsessed with finding my own.
It's just so glamorous and versatile and I knew it would be perfect for the tall wall in the living room
So I found it on Craigslist for $40 !!!!!!!!!!!!! And I went a little bonkers. I think I scared the seller with my over zealousness and maybe a couple of smiley face emoticons....and she flagged me as a scam. I was crushed and honestly a bit insulted. :(
I wouldn't relent though. I had a co-worker inquire about it and, once he got the seller's contact information he said his "wife" would contact them and arrange for the pick up. I was in!
I wasted no time and immediately got in my car drove an hour and a half in rush hour traffic to pick it up and the sellers could not have been more lovely We laughed about the whole "flagging me as a scam" nonsense.
They were so nice they even helped me tie it to my car.
And voila! Curvy, shiny, beauty!
It's the perfect thing for that awkward corner.
