I am really not obsessed with this- there is method to my madness.
I have been putting some of my pieces on the Polish version of Ebay which is called Allegro. It is a country wide shopping mall- there seems to be more new stuff than used stuff on there and it is a great way to reach a large population with one click. I have been getting an amazing response with the sideboard that had sheet music on the door fronts- this is how I received a request to do my first commissioned piece.
My store has only been open for close to three weeks and I have sold quite a few things, there is a lot of interest in what I am doing- particularly in the furniture with sheet music- so….I figured doing another piece is a good way to attract clients to the store. If many people are interested in it, perhaps some might make the trip to the store to see what else I have here.
I bought this piece on Allegro. It is the upper half of a hutch. Here is the before:
It is smaller than I originally thought it was. The measurements were listed when I bought it but for some reason I had it in my head that it was larger. The wood is in good shape- but the back and shelves are different than the front and sides. I was originally going to paint the interior a different colour….then I came back to the sheet music- for the reason I explained.
This is what I decided:
I could really see this hanging in a bathroom displaying antique perfume bottles, pretty soaps a big glass jar with cotton balls.
(once again I must thank Miss Mustard Seed for bringing this idea to my world)
