I’ve got flea market fever lately, y’all.
Kevin asked me earlier this month what I wanted for birthday. I suggested something sweet, or something I enjoyed reading, and an hour at Amy’s Antiques. When Kevin asked me what I wanted as a birthday present, I told him something sweet or something to read and a couple hours at Amy’s Antiques.
Lucky for me, and thanks my thoughtful hubby, June 5, brought with it a coconut-cream pie (my favorite!) I am pictured with the book (so inspirational! The flea market trip was postponed because of the busy week. I did manage to make some time today, and it was just as enjoyable to stroll around the market one week late. Amy Antiques was closed. Eastbrook was open, so I went to Eastbrook. If you’re on Instagram and want to view all the videos I shot while I was out and around, you can click my profile pic there (on Instagram).
In keeping with my flea market fever, today’s post will feature some incredible “trash-to-treasure” makeovers. They inspire me to make something new!
- Piano turned desk:
This is such a fun and creative way to give a piano new life!
- Turned palets into a kitchen island
This is definitely one my favorite palet projects.
- Floral mirror made from a regular mirror
Tissue paper never looked so good!
- This is how boring file cabinets can be turned into a file cabinet centre.
I can’t count how many file cabinets that were free or cheap I’ve found. They are fun to paint and you can add wood to it!
- 1. Old windows are now window art
What is it about the lettering on glasses? So charming!
- Shutters turn table:
There are so many great shutter project out there, but this one truly makes my heart smile!
- The suitcase is now a side table
This idea is amazing! Vintage suitcase and wooden tray-table make a beautiful bedside!
- The four-poster bed is made of house parts
I’m so glad you are my bed!
- Headboard is now a fence gate
This is such an idyllic place to travel through!
