Lara Spencer’s 12 Dos and Don’ts for Shopping at Flea Markets
Flea Market Flip host Lara Spencer shares her tips for transforming old, everyday objects into beautiful, functional home decor.
When it comes to a functional, organized desk, the more drawers, the better. Lara found a plain table and some old library card catalogs, combining them to create this cool, multi-drawer desk.
A captain's desk from a ship is converted into a shabby-chic writing desk thanks to a paint job and new drawer knobs.
This locker alone would have been great for a mudroom or in the garage, but Lara went a step further by adding a seat cushion. Now, this piece serves double duty as storage and seating.
An animal trough works perfectly as a buffet table when topped with glass and given legs.
Just about anything you find at a flea market can instantly become a light fixture. Lara turned this jug into a lamp base and topped it with a shade she created out of old maps of Paris. Get more tips from Lara >>
We love Lara’s ingenious idea to use candlesticks as lamps. When clustered together, these unique light fixtures provide tons of light and add interest to any room.
