Flea Market Chic Finds for Home Accent
Pediments that once graced the facades of stately homes might not have a place on your home's exterior, but they can make quite the statement inside your home. Hang an old pediment as wall art, or turn it in to something functional, such as a coatrack. Install hooks on the piece and hang it in an entryway or mudroom.
Dress It Up
By the Book
While antique books often have beautiful spines, their covers can be just as intriguing. Layer books on a shelf with their covers facing out. Mix and match the orientation of the books, leaving some with their spines facing out for a dynamic display.
Travel and Rest
Find new function in flea market finds. Use an old suitcase perched on a table base as a nightstand. Or add casters to old wooden boxes for movable storage. Look for boxes that are shallow enough to fit beneath your bed, add wheels, and you have hidden, yet easily accessible, storage.
Facing an empty wall? Fill it with flea market finds to create a delightful display filled with vintage character. Here, a trio of different sizes of mirrors draws attention to an antique dresser that's been repurposed for use as a console table. Although they're different in size, the three mirrors feature similar gold frames, which keeps the display from looking haphazard.
Give classic pieces your own twist for a fresh take on vintage. The modern silver finish on this metal bed frame instantly updates a traditional piece. For an on-a-dime alternative, buy a secondhand frame and spray-paint it silver.
