Thinking Spring...

Well, here in the Land of Lincoln we have been patiently waiting on Spring to REALLY arrive.  We had a peek of summer last weekend when temperatures were in the 80's.  That was the day I went bumming around with my two youngest children looking for baby furniture AND I remembered that the A/C in the Durango DOES NOT WORK.  (That little problem is being remedied as we speak.)  However, as is common with the Midwest, Winter came back 48 hours later and brought it's friend SNOW with it!

Fear not, because though the temps may still say Winter depending on the day, I'm going to show you a flip that makes me think of SPRING!  It all began with a lady named Bridget from the blog Windgate Lane, some paint from Velvet Finishes and this little French Provincial dresser...


This dresser had seen much better days.  It was dinged up and in need of some serious help.  Bridget decided to paint her up and chose to use the color Baroque Green.

She didn't have to do any sanding or priming and the paint when on smoothly.  She complimented the green with gold.  It turned out gorgeous.  

What a difference!  You can see more pictures and check out what else Bridget has been working on by visiting her blog Windgate Lane.  She is located in Texas.  You can also visit her on her Windgate Lane Facebook page.  Let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'.

Thanks so much Bridget for sharing your stunning furniture flip!

Two more days readers and Furniture Flippin' will be celebrating our first anniversary.  What does that mean?  I don't know!  I have nothing planned.  I'm a last minute lame-o person like that.  Maybe I'll run a special flip that day.  Maybe not.  Maybe it'll be your flip (if you submitted one).  Maybe not.  Maybe I'll actually get one of my own finished that day.  Probably not.  Whatever happens, you need to submit your own flip or there will be a ZERO chance of you being featured.  So, get a move on!
See you tomorrow!
