Another month, another AMAZING theme for the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest! Never heard of it? Here’s the deal… each month, a group of talented bloggers share pieces they’ve made to fit an assigned topic… we vote. Someone wins. It’s awesome. This month, the ever-amazing General Finishes stepped up to the plate to help our flippers get down and dirty with our September theme: Geometric Designs. If you’re a furniture painter (or wanna *start* painting furniture), then this is a product you need in your arsenal. GF makes paint, gel stain, top coats, and more! Water based and environmental friendly, General Finishes has a little something for everyone!
The timing was perfect for me this month as I’m putting finishing touches on our master bedroom redesign. After the dust settled with a new pair of chairs, I had a corner that felt a little empty. Off to Craigslist for a solution. Craigslist never disappoints…
I’ve started using a paint sprayer for my furniture pieces (I use this one: affiliate), and General Finishes works wonderfully in one. Before you raise your fingers for some angry mail, I have to say that this desk is NOT old and charming as I’d hoped from the picture. Thankfully, it IS all wood, but it’s a modern construction and nothing to bend over backwards to preserve. After mixing with a bit of water to get the right consistency, that paint went on smooth and light and lovely! (This color is Antique White.)
I didn’t have to swap out knobs or drawer pulls, so this isn’t much of a degree of difficulty, but it is perfection sitting in that corner. When I write a post, I’m typically on the couch downstairs, but I loooove having a little work area upstairs where it tends to, ahem, stay a touch more… quiet.
Check back soon for a full reveal of this space! I have one or two more things I’m finishing up and then it’s master bedroom game on!
Here are links to my swanky savvy co-hosts. Head over and give them all a cyber hug from me!
