Cheapo Side Table Flip – February Fab Furniture Flippin Contest

Cheapo Side Table Flip – February Fab Furniture Flippin Contest

Do you plan to or did you get rid of all your old cheapo furniture and buy new? I don't...I flip them. Today's project is one of those put together side cabinets that typically you would give away to Good Will and buy something much better when you could afford it. But for me, it's not about the money. It's about achieving a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture art. This month's challenge from the Fab Furniture Flippin Contest asked for a piece that goes from drab to fab by painting it with Deco Art Chalky Finish  paint. The contest theme is "Make a Statement".

November’s Fab Furniture Flippin Contest – Take a Seat!

November’s Fab Furniture Flippin Contest – Take a Seat!

Once again I have entered a furniture flippin contest.   November's Fab Furniture Flippin Contest challenge is called "Take A Seat" sponsored by Minted. Each contestant was given free fabric from Minted to complete the project. Minted fabrics are designed by independent artists who design a pattern and then enter it into Minted’s ongoing design competitions. Designers submit, and the Minted community votes to tell them what to bring to market. You can check it all out here if you’re an artist or would like to vote.   I chose the fabric Herringbone Incomplete by Lehan Veenker for the chair and pillow and Arrowhead by Paper Dahlia for the accessories. I wanted to put together a color scheme that would go with the desk I already had in my guest room. The desk was my submission in the September Fab Furniture Continue reading

Desk Flip – September FFFC Geometric Design Contest

  The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest challenges DIY bloggers to create a great piece of furniture following certain guidelines. #sponsored   This contest is sponsored by General Finishes who donated a blogger's choice product to finish the piece.       The theme was "geometric design."   GEOMETRIC?!?!   How do you incorporate geometric design on a piece of furniture, and in my case, a desk? Why, with Mod Podge, of course!   Let's start with a "before" picture. Brace yourself, it's pretty sad...     My DH and I found it alongside the road. It looked like a kid's painting project gone bad but...it was sturdy and in decent shape. Continue reading
