Paying It Forward...

What a sweet flip this is today!  You are going to love it.  Let me introduce you to Joseph of Joseph Bailey Wood Restoration.  Recently, one of Joseph's customers brought him this crib.  It had been used by his wife as an infant and it was then used for their daughter, too.  Now, the daughter was expecting and this soon to be grandfather brought it to Joseph to have it refinished.  

However, before Joseph could begin work on it, his client called and told him his daughter had decided on a new crib for her baby.  He directed Joseph to just pitch the crib.  Joseph could tell by the sound of his customer's voice that he was disappointed.  That got the gears turning in his head and he began work on it.

One week later, Joseph called his customer and asked him to come in to the shop.  He had a surprise for him.  He had taken that old two generation baby crib and turned it into this...

Isn't that sweet?  What a fantastic reuse for this old crib.  

Joseph Bailey Wood Restoration is based in the Atlanta, Georgia area.  You can see more examples of his work on his website.  You can also follow along on his many projects by visiting his Facebook page.  Stop by there and let him know you saw him on Furniture Flippin'.  

Let's take one more look at it...
