Let me REintroduce you to Old Violet. Those of you who have been following my blog might remember her from several months ago. If you missed it, you can see that post HERE. She's a gal in her 70's who came to me a little beaten up and showing her age. I spent a few weeks getting to know this old gal and she cleaned up real well...or so I thought.
First her matching table and chairs sold and one-by-one the furniture around her until she was the only one left in the room. Bound and determined she just needed to find the right buyer, I patiently waited.
This is how she originally looked before we became friends...
This how she looked after I got to know her...
I think her interior exposed to the world might have been a little too risque and scared people away. So I covered her back up again.
...with the key to her heart.
I think she was a little too shabby for some folk so I cleaned her up a little so her whites were more bright.
Her jewelry got a white refresh too without loosing their character...
Where she was once bare...
...she is now covered.
She has a lot of great features...
...Hand painted graphic on the top.
...loads of storage.
So now it's round two of finding her a new home.
Here's where I could use your help. My readers are the best and you guys have given me some great feedback and advice on other projects. So if you don't mind, I'd like to pick your brain again if I could.
Do you think I made the right choice in covering her up again?
Do you think she still needs a little something to dress her up?
UPDATE: August 26th
It worked - it sold within days of relisting it!
