A Christmas wish list for furniture flippers.
This is the ultimate wish list for anyone thinking about flipping furniture for fun or for profit. All of the links in this post are affiliates, if you purchase from them I will receive a small kickback.
First up is a paint sprayer, now if you have ever painted a chair by hand you know this is numero uno on the list. I have extensive knowledge in this area so I can confidently recommend this machine. It’s perfect for beginners, easy to use and clean and leaves a smooth professional finish. I still regularly bring this one out for small to medium-sized projects.
Next up we have a circular sander, Tabletops can’t be sanded well will anything smaller, a mouse sander or similar is fine for very small projects but refinishing tables take a little more power. I use this exact one every week and it’s definitely been put through its paces! It easy to use and has an adjustable power level, so it can be used on more delicate surfaces such as veneer. A must have for the furniture flipper.
Not all pieces of furniture will require machine sanding, and for hand sanding, I have found THE best invention EVER! Sandi Hand sanding glove. It was invented by a lovely Australian lady called Jenny you can read her story here! I am the UK & Ireland distributor with stockist in the UK. The sanding glove comes in 2 types, a cotton glove with 2 grits 80 & 120, and a Tradesman glove which is harder wearing. Replacement grits comes in packs of 3 and grits sizes from 80 all the way up to 2000. Its perfect for prep, carvings and hard to reach areas they also work amazingly on spindles!
Also on the wish list is some basic tools, all furniture flippers need a few good tools in their arsenal and these will do perfectly! This set comes in a toolbox and let’s be honest, it doesn’t hurt that they are pink! I love that they all match. This one is on my own wish list!
We are nearly set! just a couple more items and we will be ready to rock n roll. If we are painting furniture we are going to need brushes… lots and lots of brushes, well that’s not true but we do need a good couple quality brushes. There are hundreds on the market and I’ve tried a whole bunch of them but the ones I love the most are Staalmeester brushes … they are the bomb!! I work with Fusion Mineral Paint and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and these brushes are a perfect fit.
Lasst but not least some safty gear. Be safe and have fun!
So there you have it A Christmas wish list for furniture flippers. I only wish I had these tools when I first started out it would have saved me a blister or 2. If you try any of them out let me know what you think!
