A while back I shared my experiences with making IKEA even cheaper by buying the PAX closet system off of Craigslist. Now, a month later, I'm (finally) ready to share my next money saving move!
You might remember that I mentioned the ten-foot system that I wanted for my room cost a whopping $2,000 new (including the interior fittings), but I snagged a deal on a used one for $500. The set came with all of the fun drawers and organizers that I wanted, but the sliding doors were a serious mess! Not only was the style the complete opposite of the relaxing and airy look I wanted for my bedroom, but also one of the six glass panels that went with the set was shattered. I was able to use this as a negotiating tool in the first place to get the seller down from $750 to $500 (he essentially gave me the doors for free).
