Ellen Richardson, a graphic designer and Pleasant Plains resident, recently took her Craigslist hunting skills to the next level with the launch of her blog, Listed District. Listed District offers daily DC Craigslist findings of everything from Mid-Century and Industrial furniture, to bikes and the utterly strange.  Every week Ellen is going to share a roundup of some Phenomenal Finds with PoPville.

Ah, the kitchen – it’s the heart of the home, right? Mine has undergone quite an evolution during the nearly 3-year-long total gut of our Pleasant Plains row. It’s been in several stages of varying inconvenience and operation throughout the process, and is finally coming full circle – final countertops arrive next week. The current stage (no countertops, no sink, no oven) has made me sincerely realize how important a warm, not to mention working, kitchen is! PoPville kitchens come in all shapes and sizes – and so do today’s Listed District Phenomenal Finds.

As always, my favorite thing about CL finds is the mix-and-match potential: don’t think I’m too scared to pair that traditional Farm Table with some industrial chairs, especially GoodForm or Emeco if I were lucky enough to have them. Have fun in your kitchen, but don’t overcrowd it. Be realistic about the scale and what your space can handle. There might be nothing worse than dodging that extra chair or table leaf you insist on keeping up while you’re attempting a new recipe.

Happy hunting! After the jump.
