Ideas and Inspiration – How to Think Outside the Box with a Flea Market Find. Home Staging and Redesign Minneapolis, MN.

I love flea market finds. First because they are cheap.

Second because they are unique and different.

The best part is to find a way to use them for something other than what they were created for and you will really have a unique piece.

You may remember my post on “How To Create an Outdoor Living Space”. I mentioned that I used an old table from a flea market to add character to the space.

Well, I found this old wood medicine type cabinet at an outdoor flea market. At the time I had no idea what I would do with it. It was just interesting.

So after pondering it for the winter this idea popped into my head when I was planting flowers this weekend.

Why does it have to be vertical on a wall with it’s door closed? Why not flat and it’s door open?

So here is what I came up with.

What do you think? Does your brain work like mine? Okay…don’t answer that!


If you look back at How to Create an Outdoor Living Space” you will also see this old barrel from a flea market sitting on top of the flea market table so check it out.

Happy Summer and Happy Flea Marketing!
