Not enough love????

I put as much love into every piece I do to sell as I would for a pc I would keep - usually even more because I tend to take shortcuts when it's just for my house.
I always go the extra mile with interiors, little touches when a piece doesn't sell I feel it's because I didn't do something right - I can't help but take it personal.

So when I bought this piece, I thought " Oh this is going to be so beautiful when I'm finished - and perfect for a young girls room "

sorry photo is so dark - 

and turned it into this

1 hour after I listed it someone asked if they could come see it - and then the next day told me they had found another one ( and thanked me for the idea of painting it - so I suppose they got it much cheaper )
So - last night I put a little more love into it and came up with this

painted it pink - 

painted detail around edges

detail around the mirror base

I hope it sells now because I'm " all out of love "

And that's all she wrote. ( for today!!! )
