Season 7, Episode 10

Couples that Flip Together

Flipping newlyweds, Amy and Henric are facing off against, Seven and Sarah, a confident husband and wife team. The game begins at Brimfield Antique Show and Flea Market in Brimfield, Massachusetts. With a $500 budget and only one hour to find three projects from the Flip List : Sets and pairs, Twisted traditional, and a Metallics project. Next, it's time to fix up and transform their flea market finds in just one day in our workshop. Amy and Henric hope to reimagine a croquet set into a modern light fixture, update a rustic factory cart, and use two vintage barrels to create a pair of side tables. Seven and Sarah waste no time putting their spin on their pieces: they transform a pair of fire extinguishers into a set of high-end lamps, give new life to two industrial fixtures, and put a metallic twist on a pair of mid-century tables.

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.
