I have been working hard on a couple of project which are almost complete so I will post about those soon once they are completed. I thought that I’d do another “What Inspires Me” post. The reason why I started refurbishing and up cycling is a TV show. I came across Flea Market Flip one day and that changed my life completely.
Flea Market Flip is a show about two teams that go shopping at a Flea Market with a limit of $500 to spend at the flea market. The two teams buy what they think will be great pieces for three different projects. They have one day to refurbish and re-do their Flea Market finds. After they redo their finds they have one day to sell their new products at another Flea Market.
I fell in love with the show and it made me start to think of what I could do with up cycling items and refurbish them. I started to be inspired by what the people were doing and what I could be doing. I started making and refurbishing things. I went to antique stores and flea markets to find items to refurbish. Watching the show brings new ideas into my head and thoughts that “I could do that” or “I would do that differently.” It started my whole love of flea markets, antiques and refurbishing.
