Hello there! How was your weekend? It was extremely cold where I live so it was but natural to stay indoors and watch some TV. And TV watching turned out to be a marathon of sorts with Flea Market Flip on the playlist.
Have you seen Flea Market Flip? It's a contest between two pairs who are each given a budget (ex. $500) to spend at a flea market. Each pair purchases three items and "flips" them based on given criteria (ex. inspired by nature, fabric project, vintage modern). They, with the help of a carpenter, have about a day to complete all three projects. Then, they go back to another flea market, this time to sell what they have made. The pair that makes a larger profit wins a cash prize.
Now that's the kind of game I would join! It involves flea markets and transforming blah to TADA!
Here are some of my favorites:
|A chair transformation using paint and upholstery|
|Mason jar kit turned light fixture|
|Old luggage that doubles as a side table & storage|
|A galvanized container turned into a coffee table|
|A printer's tray turned jewelry keeper|
|Old lockers updated as a storage bench|
|A fresh take on an old storage piece|
Really, the results are quite inspiring, I can't wait to do a little "flipping" myself!
