Welcome to Flipping with Color
One-of-a-Kind Furniture Restored with Style, Color and Whimsy!
What we do
We refinish furniture with quality work and an attention to detail, giving it many more years of use. You won’t find pieces like ours in local furniture stores or out of a box. And we think that’s a good thing!
We select solid wood furniture with good bones that simply needs to be refreshed and reloved to serve another generation.
We pride ourselves in painting a piece to your specifications. If you’d like, we are happy to suggest color choices and finishes based on other decor in your home.
Flipping with Color uses only the finest materials to refinish furniture. One of our favorites is DIY Paint. If you’d like to try it yourself, buy it online here, or at our booth in The Picker Knows, West Des Moines, Iowa.
Why we are different
Let’s face it. Anybody can paint furniture. Slap on a coat of latex. Cover it with a coat of poly. Done.
Flipping with Color doesn’t work like that. We use safe, earth-friendly paints that we’ve thoroughly tested before we add them to our list of trusted tools. We know what finishes will work best with each piece of furniture, the environment in which it will live, and the style in which it will be painted. And we add little extras. We may line the insides of dresser drawers. Or paint the back of a piece so it doesn’t always have to sit against a wall. We specialize in multiple colors, hand-painted touches, fine stenciling, decoupage and a host of other techniques to make your piece of furniture the best it can be…something we’d be proud to place in our home.

This chair was the highlight of our Christmas. Everyone was amazed at the new life this old chair has taken on.
Consulting with a client to transform a treasured piece of furniture into something that will fit current styles and serve another generation is our specialty. And the thing that really sets our custom work apart is that we LISTEN. We listen well enough to what you want to be able to deliver that little something extra to truly make your piece of furniture special. We understand the sentimental value your furniture holds, and we know that you want more than just a coat of paint. That’s why customers have trusted us with everything from restorations to recreations. Visit our gallery of custom work for examples.
