Flea Market Fabulous

release date: Sep 16, 2014
Flea Market Fabulous
From the New York Times–bestselling author of I Brake for Yard Sales: An inspiring step-by-step guide to reinventing your space with secondhand finds. Focusing on nine different rooms (including her own recently purchased Manhattan apartment), Lara Spencer, host of HGTV’s Flea Market Flip, shows that all it takes is planning, shopping know-how, and a little imagination to create a beautiful and comfortable home that reflects your personal style. She walks through the step-by-step process of overcoming the challenges of the room, offering helpful tips and lessons along the way. She identifies the design dilemma; comes up with a decorating plan; makes a mood board for inspiration; compiles a shopping list; scours flea markets for furniture and accessories that fit the bill; restores, repurposes, and reinvents the pieces she finds, giving them new life; and brings all the elements together in the gorgeous, finished space. With illuminating before, during, and after photographs of her DIY projects and the room installations, Lara demystifies the decorating process and allows you to envision endless possibilities for what you can do in your own home. “Lara Spencer has a secret superpower: making homes look like a million bucks using only bargain finds and easy D.I.Y. projects.” —Redbook

Former Good Morning America and Antiques Roadshow host Lara Spencer is a self-confessed frugalista with a passion for shopping at yard sales, thrift shops, and estate sales, and for decorating her home—and friends’ homes—with her fabulous finds.

Peppered with wisdom from world-renowned appraisers as well as contributions from well-known designers, this book also features the house of comedienne and good friend Kathy Griffin, which Spencer herself refurbished and decorated.
