Whenever we design a space or the interiors of our house we often want things to stand out and look unforgettable. We tend to put careful thought and planning into each step, draw up vision boards and try our best to bring our ideas to fruition. While going with the tried and tested methods is great, sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and little and color outside the lines!
If you’re thinking of getting some furniture for your house just to give it a mini makeover, try your luck at a flea market and get some unique pieces. The best thing about flea market furniture is that you will find something super affordable and one of a kind too. Here are some cool furniture pieces and ideas that you can get at a flea market near you.
A TV Stand For Your Living Room
Before you get any furniture for your living room, stop to visualize what it would look like in the space that you have. The way a room is structured and shaped should somewhat match the décor item that you’re planning to buy, not just to maintain symmetry but also enhance the existing room. If you have a wood heavy layout, get a retro wooden TV stand with drawers and beautiful wooden carvings that matches the rest of your furniture.
One Of A Kind Refurbished Nightstand
Having one of a kind furniture is perfect for people who love everything customized. Get a nightstand which you can refurbish, paint and change according to yourself. To give it a new look, you can just change the drawer handles and give it a fresh coat of paint to make it look as good as new, with a lot of personality. Place a unique wall clock over the nightstand and you’ll have a cozy nook, designed all by yourself.
Decorative Wall Hangings
Flea markets are amazing places to get vintage items like cutlery and china. Instead of using the cutlery that you’ve found at a flea market, you can choose a place in your house where you want to add a little quirk and use the decorative plates to display as assorted wall hangings. This way, you can spruce up your drab looking wall in one shot and you don’t have to go through the hassle of paint or over expenditure.
Whenever a space is designed, it is not necessary for it to match completely. If you’re looking for pieces for your space at a flea market, you have the benefit of mixing and matching different textures, different colors and blending furniture items to create a beautifully put together room. Giving a little eclectic touch to your surroundings is a good change from the normal and the best part is, you can always change it back. Get down and get creative with all the wacky ideas you have.
Flea markets have a bad reputation because people think the items are used and dirty but that’s not the case. Most of the items while used are usually in really good condition and can be repurposed in many different ways.
