Apologies go out to Aaron and Angela of Own'd Sales for starting your feature in this way and probably getting that song stuck in your head. Don't know that song? Youtube it so it's stuck in your head all day. That's twice this week a furniture flipper's flip has stuck a song in my head. Why should I suffer alone?
Anyway, I imagine that this poor old kitchen cabinet was pleading with Aaron "don't give up on me" when Aaron spotted it outside of an auction house where it had been discarded outside in the elements. Aaron saw the potential in it and took action.
The doors were busted off of it and the entire thing needed an overhaul.
Aaron put a new base on it out of old barn siding.
He sanded and stained the interior.
The doors needed some minor repair and a good cleaning. Aaron wanted to keep as much of the old green paint as possible so he used wool to clean off all the loose paint so he could stain and seal the rest to keep it from peeling off the rest of the way.
He put all of the doors and drawers back on and look at what became of that sad kitchen cabinet. Here's the interior...
And here's the gorgeous exterior waiting in Own'd Sales showroom for you to come buy it...oh, wait! Too late! It sold already. You snooze, you loose! A lucky lady named Amber owns it now. Color me jealous. I want visitation rights.
Take a second to scroll back up and look again at what condition it originally was in. THAT is nothing short of miraculous!! See what I mean? That cabinet was PLEADING for someone to come along and give it a chance. If I had room for that piece in my house I'd head to Goshen, Indiana and visit Own'd Sales. I'd snatch that cabinet up in a heartbeat.
You need to go check out Own'd Sales (either in person at their store) or on their Own'd Sales Facebook page. Either way you do it, let them know you saw them on Furniture Flippin'.
Here's an interesting tidbit about the name of their business. It came about because they love many things such as art, sculptures, natural wood items, painted or re-purposed, fabrication. They are always on the hunt for anything that their customers might need or love. Which is why Own'd Sales came to be because it just covered everything that was previously owned by someone.
Thanks so much Aaron & Angela for sharing your fantastic furniture rescue!
This right here is a prime example of why I, Stephanie, try to limit my time perusing for pieces. I would need a bigger workspace than I have now because EVERYTHING that looked like this piece originally did would tug at my heartstrings. I can't turn my back on something like that.
Well, dear readers, that brings to a close one more week of furniture flippin'. We will now break for the long awaited weekend! Yay hey!
See you on Monday!
