I won’t make this long and drawn out. Lately I’ve been feeling kinda “meh” about furniture and repurposing it. Part of that was the last challenge feeling so “flat.” I won the challenge which means I should be bouncing off the walls to announce the next venue. But based on lack of participation and follow through I decided to put it on hold. I don’t want to waste my time and energy trying to make something happen that people say they want to participate and then check out.
HOWEVER, with that said, I decided it was time to check in with the consignment shop to see what was going on and what had sold. I suppose that part of the reason why I’d been so slow to check because last time there was only 1 sale. I felt like “why am I doing this again?”
Guess what? Four pieces that I took over there are SOLD! I’m excited. Feel like I have air that’s just been added to my sail. Because I’ve been feeling out of the loop on the repurpse circle, I had not picked up paint in probably 2 months. Yes I have plenty, but that’s not the point.
Today I went over to Lowe’s just to do a quick walk through to see what they had in the “Oops” department. Normally a quart of paint is $13 to $18. In the Oops it has been marked down to $1 to $2.50 for that same paint. Oops either means that the person mixing made a mistake or the buyer decided they didn’t like it and walked away. That happens when you stare at a paint chip and then wet paint hits the top of the can. Go figure. I stick to paint that’s $1 for a quart and I use that for the Chalk paint mix. Love love it.
Getting back to feeling invigorated. Finding out that 4 of the items had SOLD kicked a spark in my step. I don’t currently have anything to paint but I’ll be back on the hunt soon! Who am I kidding? I already started “hunting” which for me is the fun.
So get out and do the things you love and make that connection with yourself and those that are part of your world.
