Flea Market Finds - Part 2

Here's some more of the photos I shot while "junkin" the other day with my friend, Sarah:

BASKET - $5.00

I thought this would look GREAT on the floor, next to a fireplace, filled with white birch logs, like these:

PIE CABINET - $89.00

The patina is to die for!

TALL LAMP - $25.00

I would spray paint the base a creamy white, but leave the shade alone. I love the shade. It's super tall for a table lamp, and could really make a statement.

PIGEON CAGE - $35.00

Wouldn't this make a great coffee table? Put on some chunky casters and top it with a thick piece of beveled glass...viola!

PLANT STAND - $19.99

I love that there is a shelf on the bottom. You could put a couple of zinc mesh baskets down there, like the three on the bottom shelf in this photo:

GREEN SHUTTERS - $18.00/for the pair


It's constructed from real branches. I love it's organic quality.

HUTCH - $12.95

I could see this painted in any color, maybe bulked up a bit with some extra moulding, and sitting on top of a cute little desk. I found this one online:

Can't you just see it painted or stained and each little compartment filled with a tiny little seashell?

SIDE TABLE - $9.99

Painted out and topped with glass, this little table would be so cute next to a big comfy chair! I'm a sucker for anything that has caning on it.

PULLEY - $28.00

RULER BOX - $5.00

I could see this in a cottagey office, on a desk, holding paper clips and push pins, etc.


I think this would make an awesome planter... :-)

SHUTTERS - SMALL $8.00/ea. MEDIUM $10.00/ea. LARGE $18.00/ea.

Remember the ornately carved screen in yesterdays post?

Well, I must be on to something, because I just opened up the newest Pottery Barn magazine that came in the mail today, and look what's in the corner of this bedroom:

Then, WHILE I was looking at the Pottery Barn magazine, I was also watching "My Parents House" on HGTV, and look what they used behind the TV in their design:

I did find ONE more thing to photograph. It also made its way home with me. I've got some work to do on it, but I will post before and after photos tomorrow! :-)


PS...Which of these flea market finds would make its way home with you?

I'm loving your finds... but these posts are killing me! I live in the middle of nowhere without a flea market in site!

Leah said...

The hutch idea is awesome...this is what I did with mine! So worth it...hardly cost a thing!

I'd love either the green shutters or the ornate screen :)

Love all the wonderful finds, they are all so great and the prices are not too bad either. I would be taking home the basket, I love that basket. It would look great by my fireplace. Can't wait to see what came home with you...

All of them! But especially that headboard...then that screen.

angela | the painted house said...

I'm dying for that headboard for the cottage! $40? That is unbelievable! Wanna buy it for me and drive it to GA? Ha!

I love junkin'! You found some great things that would be fabulous with your vision.

Junk Sophisticate said...

You had some fun at the flea market! Wow! Junking is fun.

I love the pigeon cage and I really liked the inspiration photo for it. I'm also very drawn to the large pulley and pie cabinet.

Great finds!


Kelly B said...

i would have had to have grabbed the hutch. i can never have enough shelves to put plates, etc on.

Barbie said...

I really, really WANT the blue and green drop leaf table. Oh my!!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

So many great finds! Love that hutch. The prices seem awesome too. There were quite a few items I could see here in my house.

Twice as Nice said...

I love you vision for everything. Seeing what it could be, that is quite a talent you have.

Fingers are still crossed for HGTV!!

megan said...

I would gladly take home the first basket and the green shutters. What great finds! Where is this flea market in Alabama?? I am originally from Biringham.

just a little bit shabby said...

I like most of them except the lamp. not my type. I really would go for the pie cabinet, the most.

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

GIRL! Talk about shop till ya drop!
GREAT stuff. I think my faves are the rustic shelf you found for you bathroom, (so cheap!)
And the pigeon cage. Ok, the pie cab too....

Katie said...

The pie cabinet! And the hutch!

~ Lisa ~ said...

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for showing me how you would use these finds! I see these kinds of things and never have any idea how to make them into the right use - I'm getting so inspired from seeing the ideas you've posted. Thank you, thank you!
