Then in May of 2013, we were coming home from the racetrack, driving down the interstate at 65 MPH in our RV, pulling our car trailer with our race car safely tucked inside. That's a lot of weight. All of a sudden we heard a BANG. We had hit a large bird. We continued on home, arriving an hour or so later. We got out to check the RV and the front grill was cracked in half and the bird was laying there dead by the radiator. Or so we thought. Turns out he was playing possum because a few hours later when we went to retrieve his lifeless body, he had moved locations in the engine compartment. HE WAS ALIIIIVE....(read that aloud in a scary voice.)
What does this have to do with Furniture Flippin'? Nothing really. Except I have bad luck with birds and Linda from Eek To Chic doesn't.
What a segue! (Get it? That's a segway, not to be confused with my bird intro to this flip which is a segue.)
Check it out...Linda found this dresser that was sad looking.
Look at the poor thing. He had been rescued by the right lady. (She didn't even try to mow him down with an RV.) Linda repaired his drawers and then set about prettying him up.
She painted him using latex paint followed by CeCe Caldwell wax. No detail was overlooked for when you open the drawers you get a little surprise...
My favorite part of this flip has to be the front of it though. Linda decoupaged this awesome Peacock print onto it. She's an expert at that. Remember the fantastic Music one she did a few months back? Let's take a look at the perfection that is this peacock, shall we?
Bravo Linda!! Bravo! Readers, here's a tip for you: if you put a bird on a piece of furniture it sells pretty much immediately. I've featured quite a few pieces that were flipped the bird and they all sold. JUST LIKE THIS ONE DID. Yep, it is sold.
EEK to Chic is based in Chesapeake, Virginia. You can find Linda's items at 3 Little Blackbirds. You can also follow along with Linda on the Eek To Chic Facebook page. Let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'!
Thanks so much Linda for sharing your fine feathered friend furniture flip! It's stunning.
Dear readers, thanks for indulging my rambling today. If a bird ever tries to kill you or if you ever miraculously hit one and it lives to turn you in, I will gladly listen to you, too. Have a lovely Tuesday.
