Our April Fab Flippin’ Furniture Contest is finally done! To say that Inge have been busy, well that really, in the classic statement, truly is an Understatement! I can’t believe it’s April 22 & I can’t believe how much we have done!
So let’s talk about this fun piece first. I trash picked this gorgeous dresser a few years ago & had to completely scrub every little corner inside & out of this dresser. It really stunk! I used gentle soap, hot water & a vinegar solution & it finally came back to life. I wasn’t really painting furniture then & I only painted the top of this in a brown that sort of matched. When we got a chance to paint with Pure & Original paint who sponsored April’s Fab Flips, I knew this piece would be a perfect match for this paint.
I couldn’t have gotten through this piece without Inge’s help! She was a lifesaver when I was on the edge of insanity & I almost just painted a small square end table. I have so many projects going on that this seemed way too big to tackle! After a brief conversation of her “talking me off the ledge,” lol I am extremely happy that she got me through this! I had an awesome afternoon painting this & feeling so much better getting this Finally painted! It also helped that this paint line is Very easy & smooth to work with.
Here’s some before pics:
How cool are these handles?!
Inge primed the entire piece which helped with how the paint went on in the long run. I’m so glad we primed because as I painted with the Pure & Original chalk based paint I needed only 2-3 quick layers & I know I would have needed a lot more if we didn’t prime.
I used the Bohemian Gray on the top. I love this color so much! It matched the blue wall behind it perfectly.
This is my daughter’s dresser & she’s really happy with it now too. Her bedroom is slowly but surely coming together so nicely! I should do a room tour & recap all of the projects I’ve done in here. Also I don’t have a pic of it now, but the light purple in her comforter is a perfect match in the purple in the gray paint 🙂 This really was the perfect project for this chalk based paint.
Here are our fab hosts this month:
