July 2016 "Farmhouse Fun" Contest, Sponsored by The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co.

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

It's that time again! Time for a brand new FFFC™!

The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co. is July's Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest™ sponsor!

Our theme for the month is "Farmhouse Fun" which is perfect for OFMP's chippy tendencies.


If you have never used OFMP before, you should definitely give it a try! There is just so much you can do with it! You can create a modern, smooth finish just as easily as you can go chippy!

The best part? This paint is 100% green and all natural. It's a true casein-based milk paint with a lime binder. OFMP was the first paint in the U.S. to earn a USDA Bio-based certification meaning even the way it's manufactured is renewable and self sustainable.

For this month's theme, entrants will take a piece and give it a farmhouse-inspired flip that would make Joanna Gaines jealous! :)

Make sure you check out our hosts' blogs for this month's inspiration projects as well as for the contestants' entries!


This month's featured hosts are Evey and Stacy so check back on their blogs often as the entries will begin pouring in soon! Here are some sneak peeks at the hosts' projects!



Evey's Pitch Black nightstand is JUST chippy enough to achieve the charming farmhouse style she was going for. Go see how she achieved the look HERE.


  After a short time away from the FFFC, LYNN IS BACK, Y'ALL and her project is better than ever! Go see how impossible the BEFORE was on this custom color bench over on her blog!


Thea's pie safe was a true labor of love. Go check out its humble beginnings over on her blog.

April 2016 Pure & Original Contest! "Pure Colors, Original Elegance"

Saturday, April 9, 2016

Its time.
Do you know WHAT time?
Y'ALL?! Its time for another AMAZING Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest!!


Yes!! Its such an exciting time!! This is the BIGGEST CONTEST YET!
Like just picture Julia Roberts,.. Huge! Huge!!
Yes this is HUGE!!

This month the sponsor is Pure & Original USA.  Have you heard of them??
Better yet have you TRIED THEIR PRODUCTS??
We are here to tell you-do it.
Just do it.

A little about them...
Pure & Original is a luxury brand that provides designers in sophisticated spaces with unique finishing touches. Imported from the Netherlands to the USA, Pure & Original paints are crafted 'in the old way' and are environmentally-friendly, with little to no VOC.

A little about their products...
Classico - a thick, chalk-based paint with natural pigments, applies effortlessly to walls and furniture and requires no primer. Drying surprisingly fast and to an intense, matte color, Classico's resilient finish requires no sealant. Classico may be thinned with water to achieve the painter's desired application consistency. Classico is available in more than 130 colors.

Fresco Lime - a favorite of NYC designers, Fresco Lime paint is made with 100% natural mineral paint composed of quick lime and all natural pigments; when applied, Fresco Lime will become a part of the surface, not merely resting on the top of the surface like latex paints. The final finish is one of matte, unique shades and strokes. As the lime cures, it bleaches the pigments slightly. Environmentally friendly, lime paint is a centuries-old finish used as early as 1500 BC. 'Fresco' is Italian for 'working wet' and is best known in fresco wall murals throughout Europe. Our Fresco Lime is made in 'the old way’ and is available in 114 colors. Additionally, our Fresco Lime paint may be diluted significantly to create an amazing 'lime wash' effect.


Marrakech Walls - Marrakech is a 100% mineral paint with natural pigments that can provide either a concrete finish or a tadelakt finish, a look similar to concrete resulting from an ancient Moroccan technique. The difference depends on application but both finishes provide a smooth, soft to the touch feel, like a stone in a stream. Ideal for walls, it's simple and easy to apply with a brush or roller, followed by a trowel. Marrakech is available in 114 colors.

Sneak Peek of the piece Evey flipped and the colors she used!

For our contest, we will be focusing our energy on their Classico line! Our contestants had a hard time choosing from the 130 gorgeous colors, as did our Fab Hosts!
