My Shop Feature

I sell most of my furniture through Craigslist and Etsy. I usually don't worry about painting my pieces a typical black and white to sell on Craigslist. I kind of just let my artistic vibe take me where I want to go that week. I will admit my bolder pieces sell on Etsy more easily than Craigslist.

I had an "aha" moment today and realized that other people can't envision what kind of space I had in mind when I painted a piece of furniture. I've decided to include some photos of beautiful rooms and color schemes that help inspire my furniture painting.

The first piece is a coral armoire... and the rooms that inspired it. ( I apologize, I've had these saved on my computer but I don't have the source to cite them)

The purple paloma dresser and some beautiful photos of inspiration.

  1. That's very smart! I also rarely paint anything white or black, and find that locally my pieces sell slower than through Etsy. Putin an inspiration picture with the piece on CL may help... Thanks for the idea! Love your blog... I'm a follower ;) - Susan
