You are all about to love me.  So now that I am faking crafty, I am on the hunt for some furniture pieces on the cheap.  A dresser, and some dining room chairs that I could repaint and cover in some fun fabric are at the top of my list.

Then I learned something that changed my life.  When you are hunting on craigslist mainly by pictures, there is a great way to do it.  It sounds complicated and I can’t understand how it works, but it only takes a minute to do and then you can view all pictures on one page and click for more info if you want.

How you ask? Craigseasy.com!
