Fab Furniture Flippin Contest
I’m so excited for another Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest! Its been a couple of months since I participated in one and when I heard that this month was being sponsored by Pure & Original Paint I couldn’t wait to jump in and give it a try.
Pure and Original is an economically friendly paint (and you guys know how I love to paint safe), made with all natural pigments and so many soft colors to choose from.
The theme of the contest is “Pure Colors, Original Elegance”. I figured what color would better represent elegance than lavender!
I choose the colors Bohemian, White Rhino and Island White for my piece to create an old world elegant finish.
Project Piece- Before
I choose this curvy lingerie chest from my inventory to transform. It’s ample curves and robust size needed something to liven her up!
I made sure to remove that dated hardware and get pretty new crystal knobs and silver handles from none other than D Lawless Hardware. Once prepped, I layered all three colors on the chest for the base.
Next I unevenly added Bohemian, which is such an elegant shade of purple.
Lastly I washed the chest with White Rhino and then distressed all over to reveal bits of all three colors creating a cloudy, fairy tale finish.
The crystal knobs and silver handles looks like they were meant to be paired with this lavender lingerie chest!
The After- Lavender Lingerie Chest
For an extra touch I also rubbed the wooden drawer guides with a bit of lavender oil for a subtle sweet aroma when the drawers open. I even made a aged vintage lavender label for the little bottle of lavender oil for the photos. I couldn’t resist.
