you probably already know that we love flea markets - and this past weekend the Mr. Kate team split up to browse and get inspiration...annnnd maybe buy a giant birdcage! Kathryn visited the Melrose Trading Post and Joey and i went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market. flea markets sell old, new and spruced up old - like these vintage tin ceiling tiles that the vendor mounted on wood and painted fun colors!
shoulder studs! go stud-crazy and DIY your own or make the DIY Studded Shorts or Spike Headband...
oops! fun purchase! Joey and i picked up this giant vintage birdcage to do something fun with...but poor Joey had to carry the iron thing - it's heavy!
a starfish to go with a Mr. Kate Seahorse necklace, bangle, or ring!
look at this pretty chair! it looks very French chateau - this piece upholstered in a different fabric would make a great addition to any couch, chair, coffee table set-up.
they're everywhere! DIY boho belted boots anyone?
or how about some DIY hand painted purses?
this coffee mug goes perfect with a DIY succulent coffee pot
vintage ceiling tiles made into mirror surrounds - love the peeling paint and intricate designs.
that's it for this edition of our flea market inspiration round-up... check out more flea market finds posts here!
now off to tend to my birdcage!
