Season 7, Episode 9

New moms vs. Rhinestone Cowboys

Confident couple, Thomas and Douglas, is going to battle against a pair of fearless new moms, Jennifer and Ashley. The teams duke it out at the Brimfield Antique Show and Flea Market in Brimfield, Massachusetts. There they have $500 and one hour to shop for items from our Flip List: Unconventional Seating, Minimalist Design, and Drab to Fab. Next, it's time to transform their items in the workshop. Jennifer and Ashley hope to create three awesome projects as they update a pair of mid-century nightstands, use rustic wooden clamps to create unique seating, and transform an industrial table base into a functional kitchen island. Thomas and Douglas bring the sparkle as they add rhinestones and cowhide upholstery to a pair of vintage chairs, fuse two tables into a fashionable bench, and combine metal frames and a tabletop into a minimalist coffee table.

Hanging Coat Rack

A coat stand takes up valuable floor space in small rooms; instead, utilize wall space with a wooden hanging rack. Lara added a mirror and industrial hooks, making this piece multi-functional.

Go Ahead and Haggle!

Get what you really want by always being charming, bundling your purchase, and buying at the end of the day.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Window to Wall Coat

Hang coats, purses or reusable bags on this arched window turned into a wall coat tree. Personalize it by painting your house number on the glass, like Lara did here.

Cash is King

To get the best deals at flea markets and yard sales, Lara says get to the sale early, stay late, bring cash, don't be afraid to negotiate price and if you see something you like, take it or someone else will. Most of all, have fun!

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.

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!).
