Well, that's about to change! Because Joanne from Funky Junk Home Decor in Newfoundland has a hold of you now and she has a deadline to meet!
Our heroine Joanne entered a local magazine's upcycling contest. However, her dad fell ill and she missed the deadline by 12 short hours. Not one to let that stop her, the project she had intended to enter went forward anyway.
(Who needs to win a stinkin' contest anyway? I know you're a winner Joanne! You don't need a magazine to tell you that. Now the entire universe will know!)
Hehehe...I can hear a conversation taking place right now..."Who does this Stephanie on this little blog think she is? Does she really think she has the eyes of the entire universe reading her blog? She must be mad out of her mind! I think maybe she's hitting the bottle!" Well, let me tell you MOM! Maybe I do! Just maybe I do! Would that be so hard to believe? Just kidding. My mom doesn't read the blog.
For the seat she used an old board that was too damaged on one side to do much else with. Never fear - underside it went! Unless you are up under that chair dusting you're never going to notice that. (Because let's face it, who has time to dust under their furniture? Not me! Maybe you do, and if that's the case, come on over! I've got a whole houseful of furniture with your name written all over it in dust.)

Some days dear readers its so much fun to be the Mom!
Back to the flip. Joanne painted this with Country Chic Paint in licorice and added a few hooks plus a place to pin notes and photos.
Check it out!
Isn't that great? Knock, knock! Who's there? A door. A door, who? A-door-iable that's who! Because it is! It's both fun and functional!
I love it! Thanks so much Joanne for sharing your upcycled furniture flip! I agree with Joanne that it makes a great entry piece. Might I suggest that it would also be a great place to write, "You're Grounded" when your kids come home late one night. It'd be the first thing they see when they walk in the door.
You can find Joanne on her Funky Junk Home Decor Facebook page. There you will also get to see much more of her awesome talent on display. She also has a store in Newfoundland and their grand opening was this past weekend! She is also not only a user, but she's a dealer of Country Chic Paint, too. Go check her out. Tell her you saw her on Furniture Flippin'.
This week is off to a great start. Have you submitted your flip yet? We have some wonderful ones coming your way this week. If you'd like to share your furniture flip, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Before/after pics and all of the info you'd like to share.
