After having my son in January of 2020, I quickly realized I needed a creative outlet that also helped pay my bills. I headed to a thrift store and found a wooden breadbox painted bright blue. I bought it for $4 and got to work. It wasn't an easy process, but, through trial and error, I turned it into a work of art. When it sold the same day, I was hooked. Within a year of teaching myself and sharing my flips, my social media accounts grew to over 430,000 followers.
Nowadays, I continue to flip furniture inside my incredibly disorganized garage. My goal is to continue selling knobs, handles, furniture legs, and peel-and-stick wallpaper cheaper than stores and Amazon. When my son takes a nap, I'm sanding, priming, painting, staging, or selling. After a year of flipping furniture and sourcing the necessary tools and decorative accents, I decided to source them and sell them at a discount in order to inspire and enable others to flip furniture alongside me.
You CAN flip furniture. Before I found that breadbox, I was envious of other creatives. I found myself constantly thinking, "I wish I were creative."
Believe me, the potential is inside of you.
