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.

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.
