you probably already know that we love flea markets – and this past weekend the Mr. Kate team split up to browse and get inspiration…annnnd maybe buy a giant birdcage! Kathryn visited the Melrose Trading Post and Joey and i went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market. flea markets sell old, new and spruced up old – like these vintage tin ceiling tiles that the vendor mounted on wood and painted fun colors!
oops! fun purchase! Joey and i picked up this giant vintage birdcage to do something fun with…but poor Joey had to carry the iron thing – it’s heavy!
look at this pretty chair! it looks very French chateau – this piece upholstered in a different fabric would make a great addition to any couch, chair, coffee table set-up.
they’re everywhere! DIY boho belted boots anyone?
or how about some DIY hand painted purses?
this coffee mug goes perfect with a DIY succulent coffee pot
vintage ceiling tiles made into mirror surrounds – love the peeling paint and intricate designs.
that’s it for this edition of our flea market inspiration round-up… check out more flea market finds posts here!
now off to tend to my birdcage!
