Flippin’ Paint

Leave a comment

Flipping a piece of furniture can be as simple as adding a new coat of paint – as most of you already know.

I found this on Craigslist for free and sold it for $75, which included delivery.

Step 1: Sand the entire dresser (going with the grain of the wood, not against it)

Step 2: Wipe away all dust with a moist cloth. Let dry

Step 3: Remove old handles

Step 4: Fill in holes with wood puddy

Step 5: I applied 2 generous coats of white paint (I used a combo paint/primer). Let dry

Step 6: Take great photos and send to friends and family!
