Where to Find Furniture to Paint

Tips & Tricks on where to find the best project furniture!!

Wondering where to find furniture to paint? One of FAQ’s is where I find my furniture
pieces and hardware for my furniture makeovers. It may seem simple,
but sometimes it can be overwhelming looking for furniture pieces,
so I wanted to make it really easy for you and give you a complete cheat
sheet on where to look for some project furniture of your own…

1. In no particular order, Goodwill or stores similar to Goodwill, are great places
to find furniture pieces at a low price to fix up. There prices vary at different
locations & so does the merchandise. My biggest advice for shopping Goodwill
is you need to be persistent in order to find good deals. Also you to find
the best deals, visit multiple locations within your area.

2. Craigslist is a great place to find some great furniture deals. With Craigslist you can simply
search furniture in your area and browse every piece of furniture or you can type in
specifically what you are looking for {i.e. Dresser, nightstand, exd} You can also narrow down
your search by price, listings with pictures, and more which makes it a lot easier.

3. Local yard sale websites & facebook pages. The area I live in has dozens of local yardsale
websites & facebook pages where people sell furniture and other items. To find these
websites you could search “{your city} yardsale website”  on google & do the same on facebook. On
these facebook pages you need to be very quick because when people post pictures of items
for sale, the great deals go very quickly. You can also put out “wanted” ads on these sites
along with craigslist listing items that you are looking for & the people with these
items can find you to sell to.

4. Garage sales & yard sales- If you like to wake up early these are great places to find
furniture pieces from people downsizing their hoard, or moving out. You can search for
garage sales in your area in the newspaper, your local yard sale websites
as talked about in #3, Craigslist, &  Yardsalesearch.com

5. Drive around neighborhoods in your area on or right before trash day. This may
sound funny, but I have found some awesome pieces on the side of the road!
I have got a brand new rocking chair, a couple of dressers, some great chairs, &
some other awesome finds! Now, before I take the items I always ask the homeowners
first. You could always just grab and go, but I feel better asking first.

6. Local antique stores. You can find great deals at your local antique, thrift, & consignment
stores. Each store is different & will be different in your area on prices, deals, & items, but where I live
I find great deals on furniture at flea markets, thrift stores, antique stores, & consignment
shops all around our area, again it’s hit or miss so you have to go often to find the great deals!
Also with all of these kinds of stores in your area, you will find which places carry
more furniture pieces, visit those ones often!

7. & last but certainly not least, get the word out to your family & friends
that you are looking for furniture pieces. Someone always knows
someone who is looking to sell or get rid of some furniture pieces. So,
just get the word out that you are looking! It can’t hurt! & you never
know what treasures you could end up with!

With all of these places, again, you need to be persistent, & you may
not find treasures every time {unless you are super lucky!} but
there will be amazing times where you find exactly what you want.
Where do you find furniture pieces at? I would love to hear where
you have found is the best places to score some awesome furniture finds!
