Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest - May WINNER

Well hello there Friday...so happy to see you!

At the beginning of May (how did we get to the end so quickly!?!) I announced that I had joined forces with some pretty fantastic bloggers to bring a furniture flippin' contest to you....



The amazing CeCe Caldwell Paints were so gracious in sponsoring this months contest with a prize package of the following -

TWO quarts of CeCe's Chalk+Clay paint
One 16.9 oz Stain+Finish (An All In One Top Coat)
One Finish Product (Flat Matte, Clear Wax, Clear Glaze, Endurance)
One Enhancement Product (Paintbrush Soap, Aging Cream, Metallic Wax, Aging Dust)

The contest runs for almost a month in order to give those bloggers that would like to enter a chance to complete their projects. 

Before the winner is announced I'd like to share a few of my favorite picks (while I thought all the transformations were wonderful, I could only pick a couple).  In no particular order, but I think you will see a theme in my picks...

This stunning Secretary Desk by Uniquely Grace.  "She is quiet and reserved but once you get to know her she really opens up"


The rose details added to the top of this craft desk immediately caught my eye.  Knowing that Mom & Grandma are both allergic to the beautiful scent of a rose yet love them is what inspired this wonderful transformation by Dragonfly and Lily Pads .  I too love roses, but luckily am not allergic.


And, this campaign desk just instantly grabbed me.  The sleek style is far from anything in my home!  Inspired by her mother's strength and determination Domicile37 created a gorgeous flip with this sturdy desk.


Are ya seeing my theme here!?! Yup all desks... I guess you can say it has somewhat been on my mind lately as we are in the middle of working on my office space.

Venture on over to my co-hosts blogs to see their favorite picks -

Much peace, love & happines
