Finding Beauty in what some consider worthless - Furniture Flip

‘Beauty can be found,

Beauty in old

Beauty in new

Beauty can be found if your looking for it

Don’t disregard what the eye naturally perceives as worthless 🖤

This dresser, as soon as I saw it, I knew that it had to be black! A dark beauty! I’m not naturally drawn to dark pieces, but I couldn’t help my need to have this one dark.



It wasn’t awful to begin with. But sometimes the beauty is overlooked, when your not looking! I watched this piece of Facebook go from being listed at 100$ for weeks and I got it for 35$, people had no interest in this at this point.




Sanding




It’s amazing what’s underneath.


This took 60 grit scuffing with my orbital sander. he places where I wasn’t going to stain, didn’t need to be taken down to bare wood, it would just be more work that wasn’t needed. That is why its good to know what direction you want to take.

I wanted the illusion that this piece had A separate Base. So I taped of where I wanted it to begin.

I primed 3 coats because the cherry looking stain is always bad for bleeding.


I did three coats in Rocky Mountain by Country Chic paint. After i applied antique furniture wax than sanded again with 220 grit to remove excess. Than I applied Varathane's waterbased top coat for protection.



There you have it! Beauty found it what most would consider worthless! - Furniture Flipping is an art, and I am so fortunate to be able to say I am a furniture artist.
