I think I have a craigslist addiction. I could sit all day long and look at what fun things people are selling on craigslist. Everything from a pack of new undies (ewww) to a car, vacation timeshare, or home.
I have a regular list of items I search for and one of the things on that list was Lucite. I've been wanting one piece of Lucite for my family room or bedroom and since I have little to no space it didn't leave many options.
I was looking for chairs, benches & stools and used these as my inspiration.

So after months of searching I found just the right stool! Only issue was it was located on the Cape, and for any of you who know the area from Boston that can be an hour drive or a 4 hour drive, depending on traffic.
I finally convinced my fiance that I would die without this stool and he just HAD to take me down one Saturday morning to pick this baby up. Two and a half hours later I had one unhappy fiance on my hands as we were pulling into the driveway to pick up my find.
We get into the house to see the stool and my fiance stopped dead in his tracks and said "we drove two and a half hours to pick up THAT!"
Needless to say he was extremely unimpressed, but I was grinning ear to ear! I told him he just didn't understand good design or a good deal.
