Wardrobe Change

Why won't anyone buy this!!!  
   This is the second time I've painted this huge cabinet.  This time I thought I would go classic collectable, painting the white to black and the blue to grey.  I then thought I'd get really crazy and add a red stripe leaving the light blue in the middle.  I also added the alphabet stencil for some more added character.  

This is what it looked like before

And After

you are talking too much 


  1. That is the neatest shelf ever! My son would love it's military flavor. A great display shelf for all his weaponry. Very creative!

  2. Since you asked, I will give you my two cents...;-)
    I liked the painting that you had before; perhaps some people lacked the imagination and felt too boxed into a patriotic theme if they bought it. Maybe when you staged it before, you shouldn't have had so much Americana. Again, just my head scratching response.
    I like the boldness and the graphic punch of the stripe, however putting the whole alphabet makes me think-little kid piece, which may end up working for you because someone might see this and buy it for a boy.
    See, some people just love to give their opinion when asked.LOL

  3. And here's my 2 cents, lol - it's all the luck of the draw - I've had pieces where I've changed 3 times -
    One dresser I had listed for 2 months - kept lowering the price - then decided I would try one last time before donating to charity - and since it was my last shot - I put the price back up to what I originally wanted and sold it 3 hours later -
    The person that bought it fell in love. It depends on who is looking - and the timing...............
    Not an easy business to be in for sure.
    Love both of your versions by the way
    Big hugs,

  4. Love the way you transformed it. I have a crush on that old camera too:)
