As my little business grows I have been having growth pains. I always have tried to keep my prices down and reasonable. I get most pieces fairly cheap or free. In the last week I have had two people tell me I’m to cheap! Other dealers of course. I did have a talk with a couple of people to weigh in on this whole matter. They agreed I was under valuing my work,time and effort I put into my pieces. So I took a long hard look at my business and have decided maybe they are right. I mean I do this to make money also though because I love it. I’m trying to find that middle ground I don’t want to be the cheapest one out there but I do need to raise my prices some. I don’t think some people realize the work that really does go into some pieces. I don’t just slap paint on a piece. There is a lot of prep work.repairing and lot of hours go into some pf these pieces. I will just have to see how it goes hopefully it won’t scare people away. I ‘m not going to price ridiculous so don’t worry!
This last couple weeks I have been working on several pieces. I did a table and chair set that I love the way it came out!
I used ASCP in Chateau Grey and Graphite over the top. Then covered the seat in a very french material.
I did a really cute vanity which I did in a new color I picked from Behr paint.
I did an old window sign. It says I will always love you.
I’m currently working on a bedroom set that I must have done by Feb 1. It will be used in a display at my antique mall where I sell.
This was once my dresser set many moons ago. It was my first major paint job on furniture. Well many years later my ex gave it to my son and DIL and she attempted to paint it black. Luckily she stopped at one piece! They then gave it to me and said make it better! LOL
So after a lot of sanding on that headboard! I’m making progress.
