So Avery sat in my garage, not selling, for about that amount of time. I told him I knew why. She needed yet another makeover. Craig's List made the makeover official when I saw the ad for & scored two giant sheets of pegboard (Curb alert! SCORE!) I slapped some paint on the pegboard to match the interior of the armoire, had the hubs add another shelf, and Voila! Avery would have another chance at being useful. I envisioned that if she did not sell, she would go to my screened in back porch and would serve as a gardening station. The pegboard backing would hold my shovels, gloves and all my other goodies.
She could also serve other purposes still. A craft center in a craft room - the pegboard will hold all your ribbons and gadgets perfectly! And hey - how great are those little holes for keeping all your quilts and sheets aerated? Nice. I think that's what the lady who bought her had in mind.
Avery came with me to the Fancy Flea in Lakeland, FL this past November 12th and found her forever home that day.
Here she is, all gussied up for her debut.
So I guess my lesson here is I should always go with my gut. I knew from the get-go to ditch the TV armoire concept, and she found a home as soon as I repurposed her. Hip Hip Hooray.
Till next time!
