A Start to Finish Redesign (Days 1, 2 & 3)


Welcome to my mini training where I take an old outdated accent table and make it into a beautiful piece of art through redesign. This one threw me a few curves - It's not unusual for you to have one process in mind and have to back it up and take a different approach.

Walk with me through the steps from messed up to dressed up.

This comment on my "Pepper" table post on Hometalk is a perfect example of exactly why I created Furniture Flipping Blueprint:

Oct 28, 2016

"Could someone tell me if you are a beginner, never redone any furniture at all, where is a good place to start? How does a person know what steps to take if trying a hand at refinishing/re-purposing something? Thanks for any ideas or information anyone can provide, I really appreciate it!"  ~ Carbo from West Lafayette, IN
