And….. there goes August! As sad as I am to have summer in the rear view mirror, I’m SO excited to share my favorites from last month’s Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest. August’s amazing sponsor was the family owned D. Lawless Hardware. I cheated a little bit and used their gorgeous jade knobs as a way to wrangle all my necklaces. It’s currently hanging in my bathroom being put to GREAT use. (I’m wearing 12 necklaces as I type just because they’re all finally unpacked and on display…)
But enough about me and my baubles… Let’s jump right in with all the fabulous flips from this month. Reminder that the them was “Icing on the Cake” and these entries did not disappoint! So much creativity and repurposing and furniture rescuing.
My first favorite is this incredible Ikea Hack by Paper Daisy Design. Would you ever in a jillion years think this started out as a plain ol’ Ikea dresser? Me neither. LOVE the hardware the chose and the Greek key embellishments she added to the front and the legs.
This next fave is off. The. Hook. Like you will not BELIEVE how it started. This mirror by Patina Paradise has a finish to die for. I want to learn this paint technique so I can make some of my old furniture look this lush and aged and luxe!
Finally, it wouldn’t be a Judges Favorite without a hit of green somewhere. I loved this wonderful application of aged green paint juxtaposed with the stripes and wood grain by 58 Water Street… and then I saw the plaid side piece. Totally digging plaid and buffalo check patterns that are popping up in design and fashion this season!
Ok… you know the drill. One lucky entrant who receives the highest score will WIN a gift certificate for even MORE wonderfulness from D. Lawless Hardware. This month’s winner of a $200 D. Lawless Gift Certificate is…
Lucy of Patina Paradise!
Because they’re so generous, D. Lawless has also let us select a 2nd place winner to receive a $50 gift certificate. Snaps for Leslie at Paper Daisy Design and her amazing Ikea hack!
