Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest August Winner

**This project was sponsored by D. Lawless Hardware. However, the opinions and thoughts expressed within this post are 100% my own. 

This month we set a new record! The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest received 30 entries for our August 2015, "Icing On The Cake" competition. It's the biggest contest we've had thus far! 
D. Lawless Hardware was our amazing sponsor this month. Each participant had the opportunity to select knobs, pulls, appliqués, backplates, etc. from D. Lawless Hardware to assist them with the embellishment their furniture flips.

If you missed the collection of entries, you can view them here.

With 30 participants participating, it really was hard to narrow it down and share just a few of my favorites. I had SEVERAL! THANK YOU to all of you who participated in this month's competition! You triggered ideas, gave me inspiration and made me do a few jaw drops!

One of my personal favorites was by Leslie from Paper Daisy Design. She started with a plain Tarva Dresser from Ikea. Added hand cut trim to the drawers and created custom legs. Painted this side table the loveliest shade of blue and dressed it up with modern gold hardware from D. Lawless Hardware and highlighted the trim with a gold sharpie. Take a gander...

Isn't it lovely?

This next feature used to be a plain old white oak farm table. You know you have seen these on your garage sale hunts! Karin picked this piece up for an amazing $10 and turned it into this dynamic statement piece! Head on to Art Is Beauty to get the full tutorial. If you're smitten with these green glass knobs you can find them here!

Before I announce the winner for this month's Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest, I want to extend one last HUGE THANK YOU to D. Lawless Hardware for being so generous to our participants. Not only did they ship product for all of these amazing projects, but they are also offering prize packages to TWO WINNERS!
