scandinavian furniture, mid century furniture, diy desk,
If you haven't checked FB Marketplace lately, you're missing out because there's plenty of hidden gems on there. I love to do DIY projects and transform old pieces into something beautiful once again, but true to my personal style.

Recently I've been going through Pinterest, specifically searching Scandinavian Living Rooms and Bedrooms and I've been in love with this simplistic modern style. The first thing I think when I see the furniture pieces on these boards is I can find that on FB! This popular mid century style often features items from the 60's, which happens to be furniture people love to just give a way on FB Marketplace. You can even find for free sometimes!

Recently, I've been desperately needing a workspace because let's be honest, how much work do you actually get done on your living room couch with your laptop? Naturally I went to Pinterest to find some inspo to get ideas of a dream workspace. Once I had an idea of what I was looking for I headed over to Facebook Marketplace and I couldn't believe how many desks I found that had great potential for a future desk. Honestly there were a lot of desks that didn't even need work!

I found a metal desk, similar to an old teachers desk and the seller was quick to respond. I was able to score this desk for only $20! I knew right away I wanted to detail the poles and handles in gold spray paint which I already had at home. The desk did have quite a bit of rust as you can see in the video below, but nothing sandpaper can't fix. I ended up repainting in black which resulted in an overall easy DIY project. I just need to invest in a power drill lol.

How can you find items on FB Marketplace? The key is to know what you're searching for. Do you have an idea as to what you're looking for? Do you have a specific style you're searching for? Does the item have multiple terms it could be known by? 

For example, I'm currently looking to turn my whole living room into the Mid Century theme but I didn't even know what Mid Century was first until I had started searching for buffets and sideboards. I found an item that a seller had listed as Mid Century and it was a golden search term! Expensive term too.. a lot of items under this search term are expensive so I had to think what if I was a seller who also didn't know what mid century was? What would I list it under? 60's Furniture. This is what I've been doing (reverse engineering) and have finding multiple beautiful pieces. I'm still searching for the "perfect" one that's long enough for a 60 inch tv. 

For the Mid Century/Simplistic theme I've been searching for on FB Marketplace..
Rattan Furn
Cane Furniture
Mid Century
60's
70's 
Sideboards
Buffet Tables
Dressers
Wicker

Here's a gorgeous wicker chair I found for my desk that completes the theme I was going for my desk.

Everyday I look for items I can add and save it to my collections. With FB you do have to move fast if you want it though, chances are if you love it.. someone else does to so move quickly! Obviously every one's area will be different but that's what makes this so much fun. Can't wait to see what you find! Tag me: @christinasciblo on IG
