I’m sharing my five favorite furniture flips with you guys today and I hope that it inspires you!
My five favorite furniture flips were harder to choose than I thought they would be. Almost all of the furniture in my home was thrifted, given to me for free, or found at a garage sale and/or Facebook Marketplace. And in most cases, the pieces I find always need a little makeover.
My hope in writing this post is that it inspires you to look beyond the ugly you see at the thrift store, and see the potential of what it could be. So let’s get started!

Furniture Flip #1 – Painted Dresser with Wood Drawers
I love this dresser so much! We got it for free when Mike’s grandmother passed away, and it was a dark cherry color that I tried to work with for so long. Eventually I realized that I just didn’t love it, despite how beautiful the wood finish was.
Sometimes it might seem scary, but if you have something in your home that bothers you or doesn’t feel right, change it! We take our homes too seriously sometimes. It’s all just stuff, and if you have to live with it, why not turn it into something you truly love to look at each day?
You can read the whole tutorial for this dresser here if you’re interested! I shared the step by step process with all the tools and materials I used.
Furniture Flip #2 – Painted Piano
Our piano was another freebie, someone gave it to us free of charge! It was very orange but I loved the shape of it, and I knew right away that I was going to paint it. I had never tackled anything quite like this before, but I recorded the whole process here so that you can watch it all on video!
I learned some things along the way and so many people have told me that they painted their piano after seeing mine refinished. One of the best things to hear as a blogger – that you are inspiring others!
Furniture Flip #3 – Dining Room Corner Hutch
The corner hutch in my dining room was a Facebook Marketplace find. I paid $150 for it, but I sold the corner cabinet that was already here (the previous owners left it) for $165 to pay for the new one!!
This hutch was a dark green color when I saw it on marketplace, but I loved the scalloped detail at the top and the gorgeous window panes on the glass door. To learn more about this makeover and the color I painted it, click here!
Furniture Flip #4 – Nursery Changing Table
Can you believe that this changing table was black when I first got it? My Mom spotted it at the thrift store and she knew I was looking for a new one when I was pregnant with Caleb. It was $40, and while the color didn’t go with the bedroom theme, I knew I could transform it into something special.
Furniture Flip #5 – Woden Side Table
This beautiful wooden side table was actually a dark finish when my Mom gave it to me, but I loved the shape of it. I used a product called Citristrip to give it this beautiful, weathered feel and I just love the way it turned out! It looks like a table from Pottery Barn, but for way less!
So there you have it, my five favorite furniture flips! I have so many more that I could share with you guys, I might just have to make this into a series! Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
