Chalk It Up To Good Taste & A Valentine's Giveaway...

It's the Friday before Valentine's Day and boy, do I have a special Furniture Flip for you today!  Not only that, but there's a chance to win a Chalky Patina Paint Package from Bluestone House™ worth $150!  You can thank my flippin' friend Denise of Salvaged Inspirations for this wonderful opportunity.  

If you don't already subscribe to Salvaged Inspirations blog or follow her Facebook page, you are missing out.  Denise very generously shares the steps she takes in accomplishing her furniture makeovers on her blog.  Do you know how invaluable that alone is?  Not only will she teach you a thing or two, you'll have fun along the way because she is a riot.  
Let's take a look at her one of her latest pieces.  She began with this lovely dresser.  The dresser had spent some time in the past as a dog's chew toy.  It's legs bore the scars of that pup.  That didn't deter Denise.   She fell in love with it.

This is Denise
This is me
Denise did a "Wash & Dry" technique on it.  (I'm going to butt in here and say, that I adore Denise.  The only thing where she & I could have a parting of ways is in regards to a different "wash & dry" technique.  She has a dishwasher but doesn't use it.  She prefers to wash dishes by hand.  That almost could make me dump her as my friend.  I have a dishwasher and I can't live one day without it.  Opposites attract tho, so I won't break her heart two days before Valentine's Day.) 

Denise repaired the dog chewed area with Bondo.  She then sanded down the entire dresser and removed the dust.  After completing her "Wash & Dry" technique, she added new hardware along with the original.  Then she lined the drawers.  

Now without further ado, let's check out the entire piece completed...
Isn't that lovely?  Denise has excellent taste.  You can read all of the steps it took to accomplish this makeover at Salvaged Inspirations.  While there you can also find out how to enter for the Bluestone House™ Valentine's Day Giveaway.  The package includes:
