Furniture flipping is a rewarding experience for your psyche and wallet. Here you will find fifteen "flips" that will convince you NOT to pass up that ugly table at the thrift store, yard sale, or even from the side of the road. Do you stop for furniture? You should!
MCM Coffee Table Needs TLC
A leftover yard sale find this Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table had severe water damage. The base was in good shape; it just needed a new top.
Damaged Side Table
When someone offers you a Damaged Side Table, you say yes! After a few repairs and a new finish, she was ready for a new home.
Banged Up Thrift Store Table
Don't walk past a Banged Up Octagon Thrift Store Table. Drag it home, flip it with new paint and a new purpose.
Found on the side of the road, this Broyhill Coffee Table was ignored for several days. Finally, I dragged it home, cleaned, painted, and rehomed it. Wondering why it took me so long to say "yes."

A friend brought me this Dumpster Find table missing a top. A round top is not easy to cut with a saw, but I found an entertaining option to give this little gal her new start.
Sofa Table Needs Love
The owner of this Sofa Table doesn't care for furniture flipping. She didn't like the color or want to make repairs. This was an easy fix, and it quickly found a new home.
Dining Table and Chairs
Sometimes it's surprising how beautiful furniture flipping can be. This pedestal Table and Chairs needed some work, but in the end, their new owner loved the look.
Small Brass Table
Perhaps you wouldn't think a Small Brass Table would be worthwhile. This was a hand-me-down from a friend. This was probably the most straightforward furniture flip ever.
Thrift Store Drum Table
Initially, I passed on this Thrift Store Drum Table. However, my friend called me back for a second look. As a furniture flipper, I wouldn't say I like to pay more than $10. I'm thrilled that I brought this gal home.
Drop Leaf Table
This little Drop-Leaf Table was double what I usually pay, but I had a set of chairs that needed a table to be paired with. The group sold quickly.
Topless Table Curb Find
Friends are often dragging stuff home for me. This Topless Table is one of those items. If you have some glass top tables that have broken, there are many options to replace the tabletop.
Update Your Old Table
A family member needed a refresh and an update on their Old Table. You may be surprised that this table was not painted. They loved how it turned out.
Vintage Side Table
My friends do not like furniture flipping, but they know I do. This Vintage Side Table was given to me and was an effortless project.
Who could say no to a roadside rescue nightstand? Not me. All I had to do was help get it out of my friend's trunk. This was a fun project and perfect for the kids.
Well-Loved Coffee Table
Another freebie for me was this Well-loved Coffee Table. When I say well-loved, I mean years of neglect. I think this is the most enormous coffee table I've ever seen.
