Trash to Treasure Tuesday—More Flea Market Finds

Wordy title, anyone?

In keeping with our “decorating with flea market finds” theme of the past two weeks…

Oh, sorry, I forgot to tell you, we’re having a flea market theme for a couple of weeks.  I just decided, like five minutes ago.  

Sometimes I just have creative urges like that, and they must be nurtured.

Anyway,   I went to My Home Ideas, JUST FOR YOU, and I typed “flea market” into the search box JUST FOR YOU.

Yes, I went to all that trouble because I {HEART} you.  Here’s what I found.  (click here for the full list of search results)

Matchy, matchy dining sets are so yesterday.  Gather a group of cast-offs and you’ve got perfect seating for a modern family.

I love everything in this picture, but the ACTUAL flea market item is the chicken feeder turned spice rack.  I’m hoping some bleach and a scrub brush were involved.

Love love love the seltzer bottle turned lamp.  Do you think that lampshade might be covered in chalkboard contact paper?     So cool that would be.

This picture makes me hyperventilate.  A chalkboard in the dining room.  Swoon.  A candle chandy?  Double swoon.  Don’t even get me started on those chairs.

Look at these washstands.  They were originally made for a hospital.  Again, pass the bleach please.  How perfect for a cabin.  Aaahhh, another reason to wish I had a cabin.

There you go.  More flea market inspiration.  You’re welcome.  Now link up those projects!

Ten Ways To Decorate With Red On A Budget

Last week on my Facebook Page, I asked my followers a very important question…I asked …”what is your biggest decorating challenge in your home?”  I got several thought provoking answers, and thought it would be fun to try and help solve the challenges here on the blog.   One follower, I’ll call her Sandy, cuz that’s her name, ;), said that she struggles with adding color to her home.  Sandy told me that her favorite color is red, so I did a little research and today I’m sharing ten ways to decorate with red.  On a budget, of course, because that challenge fits EVERYONE.

Ten Tips For Decorating With Red On A Budget

As much as I love my neutral decor, I can’t resist a few pops of color.  Like Sandy, I love red; especially in the months of December-February.  Other months I love other colors, like green, aqua and even orange, so it’s crucial to choose budget friendly accessories that I can switch out without guilt.

Throw pillows, snuggly blankets, ceramics and other accessories are perfect for pops.  Red is a bold color, so small objects pack a big punch.  A little really does go a long way.

Adding a little bit of color to every room spreads the color out and makes your decor more cohesive.  Use the kitchen ceramics above in the bathroom and the lanterns in the bedroom or on the patio.  Move them around when you get bored.  Not that that ever happens to me or anything.  Add green at Christmas, pink for Valentine’s Day and aqua for a vintage vibe.

You never knew red was so versatile, did you?
