My first furniture flips!

I know the title of my blog says it is about adoption but now I am adding something else that I’m really excited about. I am now collecting pieces of furniture in hopes to turn them into something beautiful. I have my first 3 pieces that are ready to be sold!

My first piece is an old tv cabinet that we all had over 10 years ago, but with flat screens out now, people aren’t finding any use for them anymore. Not to mention they just aren’t that attractive. Sorry if you still own one;) I just knew there had to be another purpose to a piece like this instead of the trash dump. And, yes, I found one! I had a vision to turn this 90’s thing into a cute storage piece! So this is what it looked like when I bought it

With a little creativity and a husband willing to help, this poor piece of furniture turned into this.

But even with the doors back on, it just wasn’t good enough for me. I wanted to do the hard work for people by searching for the perfect storage accessories for this piece to make it complete. So I did!

Still not good enough for me. The baskets needed chalkboard labels. I found wooden labels, painted them myself, and glued twine on them.


Now it is done and ready to be in your home. $525 is price of this beauty that I am afraid to let go of.

My next piece is a dresser that I painted with Province chalk paint, topped with a light and dark wax, and replaced hardware with vintage glass knobs.

My last piece is a coffee table that came to me with a nice glossy finish on top of a beautiful grainy wood. So my first step was to take that varnish off the top to give it a nice farmhouse look. With lots of sanding on top and  3 coats of Province on the bottom, I achieved the look I was going for.

This one is so hard to get rid of since it goes so well in my house, but for $200 it can be yours!

Thank you for looking!
