Flea Market Style Decorating


flea market style

I'm so thrilled for my friend Linda over at one of my favorite blogs: Restyled Home. She is not only a really wonderful lady with a big heart, but she has a great talent for transforming a room into a comfortable and stylish space. She is the new Editor-At-Large for a wonderful new magazine called Flea Market Style. How cool is that?



With someone like Linda and her talents involved, I knew this magazine would be right up my alley (not to mention that the always amazing Matthew Mead is behind this magazine!). My family is always on a budget. While working on our kitchen and soon the baby's nursery, my main goal has been to make new out of old.

I really get this great satisfaction out of taking something that appears ugly and useless and making it a part of a room in the home. In fact, my goal with the nursery and the kitchen accessories is to not buy ANYTHING new. Nothing. I will refurbish furniture, create accessories out of junk, and relish the vintage look of my new rooms!

I'll be sharing project ideas that I come across and hopefully some successful projects of my own. This new magazine couldn't have come at a better time! If you have any great project finds to share, please post them here. I need all of the help I can get here people!

Tanya, you are too sweet (I'll send you that $20 later ;0)
I am so excited to be part of this and Matthew, Ki and I really appreciate your support and helping us spread the word!

As for your nursery plans, I love your approach to decorating it! Re-using not only sets a great example, but also means you won't be buying that melamine furniture that would gas off until your little guy is a teenager!! With your sense of style, I just know it will be a beautiful space. If I can do anything at all to help, just say the word!! Oh, and we want more photos of your baby bump!

You're the best!
Linda

Oh Tanya! I imagine that your nursery will be precious! I love re-using older pieces.
How are you feeling these days? Have you come up with any names? Post more pics!

I've been reading about the new magazine over at Linda's blog too. Can't wait for it to come out, it is sure to be full of fabulous ideas.

I love doing trash to treasure projects, and I have several on my blog if you are interested.
