Would you buy this for $100?

I found it on Craigslist and they're asking $100 for it.  I know that an island (and yes, it's an island) of this sort, NEW, would cost way more.  Would you go for it? 

ETA: The back is closed off and there is an overhang of about six inches where two stools can fit.  The cabinet on the left is just a shelf and the one on the right has a trashcan slide.  I've got her talked down to $75 right now.

I'm thinking I may paint it offwhite and put decorative feet on the bottom...and change the countertop at a later date. 

OMG, YOU GUYS!  I think this is the same one.  I mean, the same style and all that junk.  LOOKIT!

I could work with that.  *nodding*  $75 is not much to begin a project like the After piece. 




Sometimes when I'm alone, I like to Google myself.

That's an island?  It just looks like a cupboard of sorts.  I bet you can find an even nicer and cuter island on Craigs list.  I'd keep looking...but that's me.  I don't know the decor your house has.  just being honest :)

I wouldn't, but it doesn't look like an island to me. And it's not my taste.

That doesn't look like an island to me.  More like a makeshift cupboard.

That doesn't look like an island. It looks like somebody put some cabinets together then put a slab on top and called it an island.
