Furniture Flips

I know I’m only 40 years old, but in the meantime I still think about "retiring” at some point in my life. Years ago, retirement meant you quit your job of 35 years, collected your pension, and wasted away sitting on the couch watching TV for the remaining years of your life.  Who wants to do that? Now Retirees are finding retirement hobbies that make money. Retirement can mean different things for different people. Nowadays people...

From Business Grad To Full-Time Furniture Flipper Do you love rescuing old furniture and giving it a face lift? Do you love using power tools and getting your hands full of paint?

Flipping repurposed furniture for a profit is still an untapped market - especially on eBay. Did you know that you can...

Boy Dollhouse Redo This furniture flip is a little bit different then your traditional flip. But if you have kids or grandkids then you are familiar with  a traditional dollhouse. Especially if you have girls. Well dollhouses are no longer for girls only! Check out this awesome boy dollhouse redo that Jamie did for her boys! This is what it looked like before — all things girly and Barbie. She was able to pick it up for...

Today's post is a continued series of furniture flips that were done by YOU guys! Last year we held a contest looking for 10 furniture pieces to feature on our website, and we loved this patio chair redo. This project was done by Mitch and Melissa Haynie from American as Texas. They picked up these two old patio chairs that had definitely seen better days. They were being held together by tape and had no seat cushions....

This whitewash art station project was a fun one for me, and I was really happy with how it turned out. (This post is written by Melissa)  We recently listened to The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines on one of our recent road trips. (We love audio books!) It is a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone. Rob has listened to it 3 times since then because it's just so good. Try Audible and...

Do you like the look of distressed furniture? How about white distressed furniture? I am starting to get on a new kick of repurposing furniture - I think it's pretty fun! Today we have winner #3 in our furniture flipping contest series - and it's a fantastic flip! These bedside tables were beautifully done by Cecilly Bumatay. She is a successful realtor in New York, and when she is showing houses, she sometimes falls in love with some...

This post is the second in a series of furniture flips that were submitted in a contest a few months back. We selected 10 awesome furniture flips as the winners. We are recognizing each piece in it's own shout out/post (in no particular order). This beautiful hall table refinish was done by Ferris Mueller, who shares her fun ventures on her Facebook page Dirt Floor Furniture. We loved this piece for several reasons. One of those...

Another month as a reseller in the books! September was an interesting month because we had an emergency trip take place. We decided to evacuate from hurricane Irma and take our 5th wheel up to Michigan. We had to do some title work on our camper anyways in Michigan, so decided to just go and do it then and outrun a hurricane. We ended up being gone for two weeks so that cut into our work...

Today we have a fun post! And it's actually a series posts all about furniture flips. Earlier this year we held a contest with our community to send us some of their best furniture flips. We selected 10 winners to publish on our website and I am excited to share with your our first one! The first piece I want to start with is a really cool wardrobe repurpose. This piece was done by Michelle Watson...

Since our last post/flip, we've gotten a lot of questions about teak wood. Mainly how to identify and restore teak wood. I am sure it has sparked an interest in many because the ROI on this teak patio set was 2,500%! We spent $100 on a set of 4 chairs, a love seat, 4 bar stools and a table that we found on Offer Up. That probably sounds so low for all of that furniture,...
