Remember a few posts back when I chatted about missing the photo op of the kitchen island, found here. Well, I've had this great little dresser for a few months now, and had big plans for it. A Union Jack...a primitive American Flag...all inspiried from the eagle and star hardware. Due to the shop's grand success, I had to quickly get the dresser painted as I needed to fill a few holes.
After having this beautiful dresser in the window for a week or so, I decided to change it up a bit..actually, I had a few too many things sell, too many new holes again, and it was the perfect size to fill one of those new holes. After I had it placed, I realized I hadn't gotten an after shot. There were a few minutes to spare at the end of a busy day so I grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots.
I understand they aren't great photos, but I wanted to get a few just to tie me over until I could set up the perfect setting and take some nicer photos. Well, my 10 minutes till we closed quickly came to an end and I started closing the shop down. At 5:05, a customer walked in, looked frantically for the "blue dresser from the window!" A look for pure joy and relief came over her face as I pointed her in the direction of the dresser. She pulled the tag and quickly walked up to the desk and proudly announced, "I'll take it!"
Smiling to myself, I gladly wrote her ticket up and loaded it into her car. As she drove off, I realized how much I enjoy hearing "I'll take it! and how happy I was that I got at least 2 after shots of it.
