A lot of people are mistaken that great design has to be expensive. If you’re really on a tight budget and you’re still trying to figure out what to do with a room in your house, flea market design might be an option. I like flea market design because it adds an old world charm to a space, and it also uses a lot of texture. You can get just about anything at a flea market, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for there, then you could try estate sales or the thrift shop. In some cities goodwill even has outlet stores and those are good places to look for interesting items as well. You can always find old trunks or suitcases that you could turn into a bedside table, old light fixtures that could be polished up, etc. There are tons of DIY’s for this kind of handy crafty thing on google if you’re unsure of how to go about doing this. Here are some of my favorite examples of flea market design below.
