6 Reasons to Refinish Your Furniture

Natalie and I started flipping furniture a few years ago because we had a passion for turning something that was no longer wanted into something that looked beautiful again.

I have to admit, when we first started we did not know all that much. Flipping is a very big learning process. Most of the time you have to learn the hard way. There was a lot of trial and error but we learned what needs to be sanded, what type of paint would look best, how to properly stain pieces, and most importantly PATIENCE!

However, she told me to walk away because she didn’t want me to spend my time on making her something. (Yes, she’s crazy for saying that). Unfortunately, we walked out of the store empty-handed. The whole rest of the day I had this cute vanity on my mind and knew I HAD to get it for her.
