Console Refab

I am reposting this refab because last time I posted it I was wanting feedback. This post is simply before and after.

Lined the drawers with wrapping paper.

Thanks for looking

Did I Commit A Blog No-No

So..... I am real excited about the reveal of my first refab since I had double foot surgery 3 months ago. In my last post I write about how the piece started out and add pictures......should I have stopped there. I then added info on how I listed it in Craigslist and asked for feedback on the piece and the ad.  I am trying to start selling pieces as I no longer work as a hair dresser because of a motorcycle wreck I was in. That being said I listed a couple of pieces on Craigslist a while back and only got one nibble. That is why I decided to ask for help. I am not good at putting a value on my own pieces because I have put my heart into each piece. I do not have the stamina to do volume so each piece is a labor of love.....and takes me a while.
I guess I should ask two questions and hope for brutal honesty. I can be that way if asked? Maybe it is a curse but I would rather you tell me the piece is crap than say it is the greatest.
So here it is.....Did I do wrong by including the parts in my post about selling it or is it just ugly? I can take it. I learn well from constructive criticism.
Here is the link to the post if you are interested in my quest for education on the ways of blogging.

2 Piece Console Table Reveal and Need Advice

I am so excited to have finished a new piece. I was even able to give Modge Podge a try. She started out a lil' county and now I don't know what you would call it? Any suggestions?

I painted it barn red and they sanded the edges and glazed it with watered down black paint.

 Modge Podged the drawers with wrapping paper.

Now this is where the advice comes in. I need some from you ladies who sell their Refabs. I listed this piece on Craigslist. If you would give it a view and then any suggestions......too much info, not enough info, price up or down. Any help at all would be appreciated.

My Love Affair with Craig(slist)

Craig is so good to me. Look what I was able to get for a song and a dance.......
I am not a big fan of the whole stained pine country look.
I have started painting it so be on alert. It should be done in a couple of days.
