🎉UPDATE🎉 I sold the tables a week after this video posted for $200 with a $132 profit! In today’s makeover I’m showing how you can buy, refinish and flip furniture as a side hustle. There are so many up and coming YouTubers who are paying down student loans and their mortgages with the profit from their flips. They inspired me to take things way back to where I started…flipping for a profit! This would be a perfect flip for a beginner. Let’s see if I can get these sold.

JJ Davis says:

So, long did they actually take to sell and did you get the price you wanted?

Regina Valerio-Nunez says:

What's a good primer to use to cover a green marble table?

Regina Valerio-Nunez says:

What's a good sanderto get?

Carol Maclean says:

They look awesome! Thank you for the pricing sheet, I'm just starting out flipping furniture. 💞

Hannah Marks says:

Hi. Great video 🙂 Would it be possible to have a link for the red prep pad please? I'm in the UK so it may be under a different name here. Thanks so much.

Dana Choate says:

Thank you for sharing how you flip your furniture. I am a exgreme noob and started refinishing my mismatched furniture for my own house. I discovered I really love giving new life to an old piece and making things match. I have a very large family so having matching furniture seemed like a dream that was never going to happen. BUT someone was moving and gave me a few cans of leftover stain, paint and poly….. so the journey to refurbish my old furniture and make things beautiful and matching is now becoming reality. I find free furniture along the road all the time so I want to try reclaiming them and flipping them to supplement just a little income… 🙏🙏🙏

Dynight says:

While I am very personally partial to letting some of that real wood shine through if possible, I love the new life you breathed into these, and that you managed to make a family out of two mismatched pieces. It was really neat to see. For what it took, you still got $24 per hour work on the pieces, which seems pretty good, imo! Congrats, and thanks for sharing the process!

Aileen Hurley says:

I have a question I flipped a dresser filled in all the holes for the drawer pulls and got new ones what do you recommend as the best way to make sure they’re centered there’s two single small drawers on the top those I can get but then there’s three big drawers that I need to put two handles on

jessie millard says:

Very helpful pro tips. My wife and I sometimes get impatient after not selling something within a couple of days and will lower the price. Will keep this in mind for the future. Thanks!

Driving Music says:

This is so cool! Chock full of info!! Thank you !!

Karen Grace says:

…I have flipped furniture…but never for profit…I am sooo looking forward to trying it out…all the tips are very much appreciated. 😀

louise bastard says:

Connie Jenkins says:

I SO enjoy watching your videos! They are so inspirational. I'm now staring at a piece of my furniture that desperately needs a make over! I'm going to do some research on Dixie Belle paint!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Cassie Stone says:

I've never flipped for money but for gifts and to keep. I'm just getting started trying it. Awesome video, thank you

John Gonzales says:

Christina First thanks for all the great info!! you probably already went over this but can u give me the name or link for ur sander?

Kathy says:

I just found you! Yes I have flipped furniture for profit and also to keep 👍

17seventySIX says:

It looked like a formica top

Natelle B says:

Thanks Christina. Great stuff.

Sun Seeker says:

I was doing this 50 years ago and loving it….my most successful furniture flip was turning old Queen Anne dressing tables into writing desks. Always sold within days… Without social media!

Jewlia Rodriguez says:

I absolutely loved this video! You were very detailed of product’s names you were using, how you used them, and inserted tips you have found works best!

Barbara M says:

Thank you for not being stingy with crucial information for us beginners. I myself appreciate how detailed your videos are.

R D says:

Nice job, except that color. So blah. White would’ve been nicer.

Gabby’s Goods says:

Gorgeous!!! I have been taking furniture off the side of of the road for years. I haven’t sold anything but several friends wanted to buy a few pieces💗 That is a great 👍 idea 💡 using the word pieces to the bottom of the chair legs. Cute 🥰 library pulls just gorgeous!!

Laura Phillips says:

This is what I have been looking for. Thanks for making and sharing.

Che Che La femme says:

Is this considered white wash? I’m looking to do an original set of bedroom furniture that is a beautiful tan, blonde type of color. However I wanted to white wash it trying to achieve a white washy shabby chic set perhaps with stencils or paint transfers. Please lmk if you have any videos on this that you may recommend! Thank you so much 😊🥰❤️

wonder7 says:

wonder7 says:
