Hi! Welcome to Furniture Flips by Lex




Thanks so much for visiting my page!

If you’re interested in flipping furniture, you’ve come to the right place!


My name’s Lexie (lex for short). And I’m just a small town girl who moved to the nearest city of Winnipeg, MB in 2015 . Fast forward 6 years later, just weeks after my university graduation, (and amidst the heat of this global pandemic) I decided to turn my grandparent’s gifted dresser that had been sitting in my garage for years into one of my favourite masterpieces (image below). After loads of positive feedback and an obsession with the hobby, I decided to keep flipping. So here I am, trying to turn my passion into a career.

About Me

Hi everyone! I’m Lexie. Thanks for taking the time to get this far! I’m just a 25 year old part-time bartender, trying to make something of myself by turning my hobby into a career (I’ll let you know later if it was a good idea or not). So here I am, starting my own business in furniture refurbishing because WHO wouldn’t want to spend the rest of their life doing what they love.. AND make a living off of it?!

It’s a long story on how I got here, so check out my blog to learn more!

Do you really need teak furniture repair in Winnipeg?

Do you have an exquisite piece of furniture in your possession? Maybe an antique rocking chair? Or an elegant wooden clock? Thanks to the contemporary culture of minimalism, people prefer practical use over aesthetics. You can see the effects of minimalism all around you. Why waste time in making a sofa look good as long as it is comfortable and durable?

While minimalism makes sense, it has led to a significant decrease in elegant furniture available in the market. So, if you have a piece of Victorian-era furniture, the chances are that you have something rare and one of a kind. That’s worth preserving, right?

This is precisely where a professional antique wood furniture repair shop in Winnipeg, MB, comes in. But what does your furniture needs protection from? Can’t a simple scrub and rub with a dry cloth do the job? Let’s see some of the countless factors that can lead to the rapid deterioration of your furniture.

  • Moisture: Moisture is called the wood-killer as prolonged exposure to moisture can lead to the wood rotting. Excessive rotting can lead to the complete breakdown of the furniture. That’s why extra care must be taken of outdoor furniture or any furniture kept in places with high humidity.
  • Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can lead to the erosion of the top layers of the furniture by UV rays. In addition, constant heating can lead to a cycle of contraction and expansion of the wood. Even though invisible to the naked eye, this cycle can weaken the structure over time. Regularly working with a professional offering service, such as kitchen cabinet repair in Winnipeg, can help you increase the longevity of your furniture.
  • Chemical cleaners: With so many DIY tutorials available on YouTube and off-the-shelf products in the market, you might be motivated to undertake the task of refurbishing your furniture by yourself. But if you don’t know what you are doing, you can often exacerbate the damage. In addition, chemically active cleaners, especially those with strong acid, can accelerate the deterioration of the wood. An experienced professional offering teak furniture repair in Winnipeg is equipped with the proper knowledge and tools to do the job effectively.

So, you don’t have an antique piece of furniture but craving for one? Don’t worry. Thanks to furniture flipping, you can get the most exquisite pieces from the best furniture stores in Winnipeg.
