I recognize potential every time I see a piece of furniture in the garbage. But knowing potential and having a goal for the completion of a project are two different ideas. This discarded armoire looked wonderful. Even the other piece of storage furniture looked like something on which I could work my magic. But I had to ask myself What was I going to do with this? Where would I put it? Even if I were to sell it, would I get what I put into it?
These are the times when we think about the tasks we can take on versus the tasks we should take on. Though I admire them on TV, I am not a “professional” or expert DIYer. I’m just a dabbler. so, I don’t want to take on more than I can handle, especially when I’m doing something just for the fun of it. I have to know my limits.
Plus, I couldn’t lift that thing. 😉
