Season 5, Episode 3

Flipping For School Pride

Fashion forward F.I.T alums, Alicia and Erin are taking on Penn State Upcyclers, Chris and Lindsay. The teams bring their school spirit to Stormville Airport Antique Show and Flea Market in Upstate New York where they have $500 and one hour to find three projects from the Flip List: Rustic to Refined, Wheels Up, and Pattern Play. The college rivalry continues into the workshop, as Alicia and Erin turn a metal bread rack into modern shelving while Chris and Lindsay transform a rustic table into a bar, ready for any tailgate party. Hopefully the customers at Long Island City Flea will cheer on the teams, because whichever team makes the biggest profit will take home bragging rights and $5000.

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.

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.

Code of Conduct

Unspoken rules of bargaining include if you break it, you buy it, and if you let go of something, it's fair game for another shopper. Also, don't ask for half price immediately, be open to negotiation. And remember, niceness goes a long way.

Industrial Lights

The industrial rustic trend doesn't seem to be going away any time soon, which is perfectly alright with us. Lara's DIY wire basket pendant lights are easy to recreate and add definite industrial flare.

It's All in the Details

How can you tell if your piece is really an antique? Furniture guru Mark DeVito says if it was made before electricity, then it's an antique, and imperfections often mean handmade.

Locker Room and Bench in One

The locker itself 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.

Rustic Buffet Table

An animal trough works perfectly as a buffet table when topped with glass and given legs.

Vintage Display

This vintage display case could hold myriad objects: books, dinnerware, baskets, movies, pantry items, toys, etc. Lara updated it with a mirrored interior panel and a fresh coat of paint.

Mid-Century Modern Chairs, Classic, Minimalistic

Mid-century modern furniture like these chairs has a classic, minimalist look. Lara brought them up-to-date twith funky fabric and bright red paint.
