Antique Drafting Table Craig's List Score!

I have been wanting an antiques drafting table to use as a desk in my office for awhile now. I first fell in love with the idea when I saw this in Restoration Hardware.

It is now on sale for $795 which is still a bit pricey for me. You can imagine my excitement when my husband Brian (yep, I'm giving him credit for this one) found this one on Craig's List for $100!! We went yesterday evening to pick it up.

If you're interested in getting one of these for yourselves, they're all over the internet! I haven't found one for less $100 but you me be able to. The best deal I found was $225 for this one from Griffins & Gargoyles:

Or if you have buku bucks, you can get one of these from 1st Dibs:

This one is being sold by Deja Neu for $595 (though that's still a decent deal compared to Restoration Hardware)

Or this one from Tom Gibbs Studio for $1250:
The prices only go up from there, most of them being around $3,000 - $4,000.

I'll share some photos when I have my office "up and running"  :)


  1. I love your drafting table! What a great find and the price is fabulous to boot, too! Love the rustic industrial look.


  2. Very awesome score. I am becoming a bit addicted to craigslist. Definitely the thrill of the hunt involved there!

    1. Drafting table is not only helpful for office but many purposes. Thanks very much for sharing this with us.
