Summer is flea market season and it extends well into fall. See how to turn your flea market finds into beautiful home decor that makes a visual impact!
Flea markets always have an ample supply of vintage dishes like colorful Fiesta ware, vintage China, or classic white ironstone (my personal favorite). Take the doors off your kitchen cabinets to display your beloved treasures.
Decorate with your finds in unique ways. Beautiful vintage pitchers serve as indoor garden pots while a collection of mismatched spoons create a unique wind chime.
I’m always overjoyed when a purchase from the flea market serves double duty. Vintage suitcases in like colors create a delightful display and store sheets, blankets, and other seasonal staples.
You’ve probably seen lots of wooden crates at your local flea market. Find purposeful ways to use them. I have one that cradles cookbooks in the kitchen. Here, a pair of vintage crates stacked atop one another serve as a charming makeshift end table.
Half of the joy of vintage treasure hunting is creating news ways to utilize your finds. There’s a deep sense of satisfaction in making new beauty with cast-offs. I adore this rustic little light fixture.
For the greatest visual impact, display flea market finds together. A set of broken pocket watches add beauty to a grouping of end table collectibles.
Miniature bottles and dice are proudly displayed in a divided wooden box above a stately sailboat. The vintage finds are safely out of a child’s (or cat’s) reach. You can find vintage bottles for a good price at summer markets.
By all means, have fun when decorating with flea market finds. Cute at the front door of a cafe, this sign would be equally charming in a vintage or farmhouse kitchen.
Decorating with unique treasures makes your home one-of-a-kind! Don’t be afraid to embrace the eclectic appeal of something a little different. You might find it brings you special joy.
