Wednesday Lovin' ... Flea Market Style

It's Wednesday!  The day of the week where I get to talk about all of the things I'm loving at the moment! :-)
As you know (if you regularly read my blog), I've turned this into a themed adventure each week (you can check the others out here) ... and this week is no different!

Today, I am loving Flea Market Style! .... specifically, the ideas from my newest and most favorite magazine:
(Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publication)
I have literally been drooling over every single page of this magazine (okay, not literally -- but you get my drift).... I picked it up over the weekend at Border's for $5.99, and it was money well-spent, believe me!  There are SO many ideas I can't wait to copy ..... and I can't wait to get out and find me some junk to repurpose!!!

The following pictures are from the magazine via the Better Homes and Gardens website ( ...

I'm lovin' this bench was made out of an old crib....
 I'm lovin' these old pieces of picket fence, made into a magazine holder for the bathroom....
 I'm lovin' an old piece of iron fencing, turned into a kitchen storage/display piece....
 I'm lovin' an old window, turned into a storage cabinet ....
And I'm just lovin' everything about this bathroom .... 
 These are only a FEW of the 100 ideas in this magazine .... so if you are a fan of this style, I definitely recommend you go out and buy yourself a copy! (Or you can order it online here!)

You can also find these images on my "flea market style" Pinterest board .... which leads me to something else I'm loving this week!

You all know about Pinterest, right?
Well, if you don't ...... let me enlighten you!
Pinterest is a HUGE virtual pinboard.
You create your own pinboards on which to share ("pin") ideas and images you love -- or you can simply follow other people's pinboards .... it's SO much fun!
If you'd like to follow MY pinboards, you can check 'em out HERE.  :-)
Or go start your own pinboards and have fun pinning away!

And I can't be lovin' without mentioning my Little Lucy Lu!
She's been doing a little repurposing of her own lately!  Colander-turned-hat!  She's a creative genius, I tell you! :-)

  1. That's funny!! I just ran into Flea Market Style this week and was trying to get a copy!!! It looks like SO much fun!! I'm loving this thing about turning old stuff into new...I need to take a look around for junk in my backyard!!

  2. Magazines like that are dangerous. They will cause you to swerve in traffic trying to get to the curb to grab a piece of junk...I mean Junque...that you simply must have. You will climb into roadside ditches for the piece of fallen barn board. You will do things you never would have thought you would do all in the name of re-purposing. Be have been warned.

  3. I really love all the rustic, worn looks you have here! My absolute fav is the old window turned into a storage cabinet!!!

  4. Your daughter is a doll. If only I had the creative fortitude to actually make some of these things. Maybe I'll spend my afternoon browsing esty :D

  5. I love flea market finds! And Better Homes and Gardens-- amazing!!

    Hope you have a fantastic day! :)

  6. Loving the fencing shelves. Would you say your style is shabby chic??

  7. I use the rustic look on my front porch.

  8. Thanks for your comment on my blog!
    I love your theme this week! I still live in an apartment, so we can't do anything to the structure of the place, but I love that all these ideas you posted are repurposed items!
    I've never been to a flea market, but I'm definitely tempted after seeing some of those ideas!
    What great things you're loving today!
