Good morning! When I think about the month of November, I usually associate it with being thankful. (Although gratitude should be expressed all year long), I wanted to take an extra minute to say how THANKFUL I am that I get to be apart of The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest. It has been so FUN to meet new TALENTED friends and to see all of your amazing furniture makeovers each and every month!
The #fabflippincontest for November is going to be a GOOD one! Minted is our sponsor. Have you been introduced? If not, you're in for a real treat! Minted is a special company- a place that offers unique designs from a community of independent artists. Their digital art can be printed onto canvas, fabric, prints, made into pillows, curtains and more! You can even create prints from your own little artist's work. :) It's a wonderful company that offers unique art, stationary and home decor that you won't find anywhere else! So, I am also THANKFUL for Minted. :)
Stacy from Anastasia Vintage and Colleen from 58 Water Street are our featured hosts this month and they've created a few AMAZING inspirational furniture makeovers using fabric from Minted. Hop on over to see their flips!
Here are the details for this month's contest...

I have a quick furniture flip of my own to share. Introducing bright colors and bold patterns is a great way to freshen up a space without a lot of effort. Reupholstering a piece of furniture can be for both the novice and the beginner! What can you do with a little paint, foam, Minted fabric and a staple gun? Read on!
I started with this cute little Kids Bench. It had a dark cherry finish, some peeling veneer, great storage capacity and one hard seat! The original finish wasn't our style and the comfort factor was a zero!
Who wants to read on a hard bench? Not I. :) The old veneer was removed, new veneer was added and the bench was painted it in a warm white color. Next, we addressed that lack of comfort. ;) We cut down a 1/4 inch board to the size of the bench, added some foam and used a staple gun to adhere this lovely Hexipattern Fabric in Orange to it.
Put it altogether and we've got a cute, functional and comfy place for the kids to plunk down with their favorite book.
Our November 2015, "Take A Seat" Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest begins now and we can't wait to see the submissions pour in... Good luck!
Have a great week!
