I was lucky enough to be one of the judges in this month’s “Inspired By Mom” Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest. It’s a new monthly contest held by several bloggers, including Evey of Evey’s Creations (Co-Creator), Stacy of Anastasia Vintage (Co-Creator), Charlotte of Ciburbanity, Michelle of Dandelion Patina, Carrie of Thirty-Eighth Street, and Lynn of Fern Avenue. If this is something you are interested in particpating in, please contact either Evey or Stacy!


All of the pieces submitted were beautiful, and I had a hard time picking favorites…. Here were my top 3 favorites, though (and not in any particular order).

The chippiness of this piece is on point! You can see more of it here.

This pink piece was a great update to an old, tired cabinet and definitely reminded me of “mom.”

My third favorite — a updated campaign style desk — was also the overall winner in the contest! Congratulations!! Jess will receive two quarts of CeCe Caldwell’s Paints in her choice of colors, her Finish of choice, her Stain+Finish of choice, and an Enhancement of her choice. I hope to see more great pieces of hers using our products.

All of the submissions were beautiful — and  I look forward to seeing the theme for June and what all is created.
