A CREATIVE thrift store shopper described how she transformed a dresser into furniture that was worth 80 times what she paid.
The influencer, who goes by the name flipdaddie, informed followers that the Goodwill item was available for purchase for only $15.
She admitted in a TikTok video that she was eyeing a green dresser from Wayfair, an online furniture retailer, but it was out of her price range.
Given that it cost a staggering $1,179.99, the thrift store shopper made the decision to give her Goodwill item a significant makeover.
Before beginning to work on the drawers, she first smoothed down the entire unit.
She then added new gold legs to the piece and replaced the internal hardware, including the knobs.
Any cracks that had appeared were coated with wood filler by the bargain hunter.
She made a joke about using “peanut butter,” which made many TikTokers laugh.
The wood filler resembled the widely used sandwich spread in terms of consistency.
The piece was painted rainforest green by the furniture flipper to match the Wayfair item.
After the influencer posted a video of the makeover, viewers praised her on TikTok.
That’s amazing, one woman exclaimed. This is a superpower I want! Just keep swiping, haters.
Haters back off, the furniture flipper retorted.
Yet another awestruck admirer exclaimed, “OMG, wow, this is fantastic.”
