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.
Check out this nightstand flip from Flea Market Flips.
Fresh and Funky
These patio chairs got a fresh makeover with new paint and funky fabric.
Slow and Steady
David offers the following advice for fixing up antiques: Hide imperfections with paint or fabric, add heavy-duty hardware and take it slowly.
Mind the Chips
Don't be discouraged by a chair's chipped paint or torn fabric. Lara brought new life to this cane-back chair with crisp white paint and bold fabric, as seen on GACTV's Flea Market Flip.
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).
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.
Mason Jar Flip
Mason jars are ubiquitous in the DIY/upcycling world. Take a stab at the repurposing trend by turning these containers into a rustic chandelier.
Go Ahead and Haggle!
Get what you really want by always being charming, bundling your purchase, and buying at the end of the day.
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.
Don't just stick to familiar territory. Look through boxes, go to the back of the shop and look for good "bones" on furniture.
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.
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.
Lara painted the outer portion of this frame white and the rope detail on the inner area brown. The contrasting paint adds interest and draws the eye to the nautical print.
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.
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.
Luggage Side Table With Storage
Lara uses old suitcases to create storage in a brand new way. While you may not be in the market for new luggage, any old suitcases lying around can be stacked to create a side table with storage.
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.
