It was one of my goals for this year to redo and sell a few pieces of furniture. I have no more room in my own house but I want to continue to enjoy rehabilitating furniture and accessories.
And now that the opportunity has presented itself I have no idea about how to charge for my time or my finished projects.
So I thought I would ask all of you here in the bloggosphere.
A few months ago I ended up bringing a little dining table home from my daughter’s in San Diego. I gave it a little face lift by painting the base a bright white and I continued the makeover by painting the top with black chalkboard paint.
After way too much thought I listed the table on Craig’s List. That lead to a request for me to paint a child’s desk top in chalkboard paint. I am thrilled, after all this is what I wanted but I have really tough time putting a value on my work.
So I am hoping those of you who sell your work and those of you who buy the work of others could give me some much needed advice right away. Specifically, 1) what price do you think I should set for the table and 2) how do you set a price on your work. I can only put this lady off for so long so please hurry. I can’t wait to read your comments.
