Team USA Vs Team Canada: Bring Your Eh Game

Canadian craftsmen, Austin and Moh are bringing their eh game against style-savvy American couple Lauren and Scott. The teams meet for the first time at Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, Connecticut where they each have $500 to transform their flea market finds into Elegant industrial, Art Deco, and Textile Projects. Their countries might share a border, but can the two teams share the workshop peacefully? We shall see. They have just one day to finish their projects before selling them at the Astoria Flea Market at Kaufman Astoria Studios, where the team that makes the biggest profit takes home $5000. Hosted by Designer/Flea Market maven and Good Morning America Anchor, Lara Spencer.

Conversation Piece

Proof once again that anything can be transformed into a light fixture. Most people see a birdcage and rusty floor lamp base, but Lara saw an eclectic floor lamp (and conversation piece!).

Refurbished Dining Set With New Fabric and Paint

Before, this dining set was dark and dreary, but Lara noticed the great detail and craftsmanship in the chairs, so she revived them with some paint and new fabric.

Find the Mark

Also look for a maker's mark, a stamp or engraving on the bottom of the piece indicating the manufacturer, country of origin, manufactured date and even how many were created. Maker's marks help determine the value of the piece.

Repurposed Jug Lamp

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.

Cluster of Candles

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.

Industrial Coffee Table

Don't be intimidated by an object's cold, factory-like appearance. Old wood and metal can make for a perfectly cozy addition to your living room or bedroom. Lara attached a light to this coffee table for added functionality.

Shabby Ship to Chic Ship

A captain's desk from a ship becomes a shabby chic writing desk thanks to a paint job and new drawer knobs.

Trunk Side Table, Vintage Table with Light

This old trunk may look worse for the wear, but Lara saw a diamond in the rough. She added a light feature along with an antique coffin handle to make a unique side table with storage.

Industrial Pulley, Boat Propeller and Glass Table

An industrial pulley, boat propeller and piece of glass come together to create a one-of-a-kind coffee table (or side table).

Repurposed Dental Cabinet

An old dental cabinet has plenty of drawers for whatever you might need to store. With a fresh coat of paint, new knobs and a cutting board feature, this piece is ready to be put to use in the kitchen.
