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 freedistressed furniture flip

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.

I grew up in Central Florida and have lived here my whole life. I first got into buying and selling items when I was 16 years old, and have been hooked ever since. It has mostly been a hobby that makes some extra cash, but sometimes it serves as my main income as well. I don't plan on stopping any time soon. I find too many fun toys for my family (or myself), and just love the whole process.

    I love the idea of flipping furniture like this in flea markets. Have you considered doing a post on the business of flipping like this ? Something that discusses the time commitment vs. the profit of flipping something from free -> 150$?
