So, I have started painting my second batch of furniture for Beaches.
In my first batch, there was one table that was a ho-hummer. BOR-ING. Plain ‘ole, plain ‘ole.
Off-white legs……pine top. Standard coffee table.
I had a tad bit of my paint left, so I watered the paint down and grabbed the coffee table.
Slapped the paint on and distressed it.
I was almost embarrassed to bring it in.
I knew my other pieces would blow this piece out of the water and it would pale in comparison.
I mean….I was downright fancy with some of the stuff I took.
This poor table would look like the “red headed step child”.
It might even make me look “un-professional”.
And dannnnng….. if I didn’t get a text right after we left.
It was the first piece to sell!
Shows how much I know.
It also confirmed my thinking that plain white sells best.
I thought I was going to be able to impress you guys with one of my “fancy pants” pieces selling so fast that crowds formed lines and begged to be placed on waiting lists.
My tip: If you are waiting to start “flipping” furniture on CraigslistÂ or selling it in a store….
Quit waiting. (I have attached the popular series on my previous tips on how to flip furniture on CL)
AND if you are waiting………
Buy white paint and sand paper and get off your hiney.
It’s that simple. Start there!
Sometimes life is complicated…..because I make it that way.
