I Like My Version Better

March 24, 2013

I was exploring Kijiji earlier today as I do from time to time, when I saw something that caught my eye. I wish I could say that it caught my eye because it had fabulous lines and was just itching to be made over. I can’t. This piece caught my eye because the lines on it were quite familiar to me.

Remember the TV console I refinished last year?

Well, someone is selling the exact same piece only they had a slightly different take on how to make it over.

I realise that everyone's taste is different, but I like my version so much better. What do you think?

  3. Usually I can see through a "bad" paint job and appreciate the piece of furniture, but not this time. Your piece looks so pretty and modern, but the other one just looks like ugly furniture.

  4. I definitely like your piece better! I dunno... the painted and tiled piece kind of reminds me of a bathroom vanity...
