November’s Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest: “Take A Seat”

In another Fab Flippin episode where Megan paints furniture white…


😀 So here’s my November entry! First & foremost I want to start this post off with how I really feel & what I take from this contest. I always know that I put a lot of crazy effort into learning each piece of furniture & at the same time I enjoy every part of the journey through each project flip this past year.  I come out of each project with a huge respect of this field & for everyone pouring their hearts and souls in a flip community that surprises the hell out of me each & every month! I love every blog post I see as they come rolling in. I whole-heartedly appreciate that I am able to be a participant no matter how frustrating it may be to get to the very end of each completed project.  Thank you Fab Flippin Furniture Tribe 😀

So now onto all of this months details:

We had the pleasure to work with  They gave us free reign to pick out our fabric of choice for our November furniture flip.  As I navigated through their website I noticed that they work closely with artists & crafters throughout the country to design their fabrics, stationary & all around decor. I chose the Directional Fabric. I really connected with the vibant watercolor in the pattern it is presented from the artist Kelsey McNatt. It’s a different pattern that I never thought I would have in my decor but now fits perfectly. I chose to incorporate it into 4 different ways.  I am now revamping our back room & this corner is the launch pad for the rest of the room to finally come together.



Here’s the before.  We’ve had this furniture since my husband I first moved in together.  It is well past it’s stay with us, that’s for sure.  It’s comfy buuuuut not what I really need to have taking up so much room in here.  & yes, that’s a huge foot rest I can’t even place in front since it sits in front of our sliding back door.


I’m replacing it with this trashed picked chair that I found




& this fun foot stool we bought for $2 at a yard sale last month.



I also had enough to finally cover up this “artwork” left here by the previous owners.


Tada! Here’s the details in a nutshell.  I painted it white to brighten up that dark corner.  I love how white made these 2 pieces POP! I redid the fabric on the rocking chair, added a pillow for extra comfort & added a foot rest pillow on top of the wicker stool.


I love the lines in this chair & now how they flow with it’s new fabric & look.



The frame project I now have a new message board that will be perfect to tack up pictures & to do lists 🙂


I don’t work with fabric much so this was really a challenge but a treat at the same time! Hope you love how they turned out too 🙂
