December 07, 2017 Gorgeous Bedside Tables White Distressed Furniture Flip
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 of the furniture they have in the home. She then asks the owner if they are planning on throwing out a piece and if so she would haul it away for them.
She has been able to score some pretty great pieces like these bedside tables – for FREE!
She named these two night stands Zoe and Chloe since they were twins and they were her first furniture flip. 🙂
It was gorgeous wood to start with, and she had a great vision for them. Check out what she did to distress them below.
Steps she took to distress the bedside tables
Step 1. Removed hardware.
Step 2. Sanded down finish off of the wood.
Step 3. Painted on Minwax White Wash Pickling Wood Stain.
Step 4. Distressed wood by sanding down parts that would normally wear.
Step 5. Painted hardware black for the contrast with the white. Used Rustoleum Ultra Cover Gloss. Painting them saved her since hardware can be the most expensive part of a furniture flip.
Step 6. Sealed both end tables with Varathane Polyurethane Matte soft touch finish.
And that was it! She sold these gorgeous bedside tables for $125! She put about $15-$20 in materials into them, and like I mentioned before, was able to get them for free.
I really love these pieces! Didn’t they turn out awesome?! Love the white distressed furniture look.
They started with good bones – which is a huge key when repurposing furniture for profit. If it’s not a good solid wood, it’s not usually worth putting the time into redoing the piece.
