French Dresser turned Fabulous TV Console!!

Hey Everyone!  I hope you are having a great week!  We have gotten several new pieces done lately (which I will show you at the end of this post), and I wanted to show you one that we transformed for a client.  She was looking for a long dresser that she could use as a TV Console in her living room.  I looked and looked, but could not find the perfect dresser to paint for her.  Then I got to thinking (scary, I know)....what about the dresser in our entry way.  Remember this...

I have always loved this dresser, but the missing drawer has always bothered me.  I know that the basket was not exactly the right size and could have looked a lot better.  That was on "The To Do List" for like 3 years.  Seriously.  Oh well.  Anyway... I sent a picture of it to our client and she LOVED it!!  The empty space would work perfectly for her DVD player.  In fact, she asked us to take out another drawer for another TV component.  She also asked us to paint it black.  Yikes!  I had never painted anything bigger than a chair in black.  I was a little nervous, but it turned out great!!  Our client was very happy!! 

Here are a couple of other finished pieces...

And here is our latest purchase.  It is to be painted a soft grey tomorrow.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.  I will post "After" pictures soon.

That's all for now!  We still have several pieces that haven't sold.  See my last post and give me advice!!  PLEASE!!  I need it!!  Thanks Guys!!

I Need Advice!!

Okay people...I need your help!!  We have a few pieces that have been for sale for several weeks and just will not sell!  I need your advice on what to do.  Do we need to repaint them in a different color?  Take better pictures?  Or just keep at it??  Please help!!

#1 - Cream colored Waterfall Dresser with oil rubbed bronze knobs.  I think it is so pretty!!  It is so classic and would provide GREAT storage!!  Here are the pictures that we have listed for it...Does it need better (staged) pictures??

#2 Cream Colored Bookshelf  - This is painted the same color as the Waterfall Dresser and is also distressed.  We used it in our bedroom to hold the TV along with all of the components and DVDs, etc.  Any suggestions???

#3 Aqua Antique Secretary Desk - Okay, I REALLY don't understand this one.  I think it so adorable!

#4 White Distressed Dresser - Another one I really don't get.  We have done several larger white dressers like this and they usually sold pretty quickly.  I don't get why this one won't sell.  It is in great condition and has been painted and distressed.  It would make a great TV stand, or buffet, or entry way piece.  Does it need to be a different color?? 
Please don't be afraid to tell me what needs to be changed!!  I really need to move these pieces!!  If you see anything you like, let me know and I will make a deal with you!!!  :)
