Flea Market Makeovers for the Outdoors

Flea Markets, car boot and garage sales, thrift stores, and even big discount operations can be treasure troves for the eclectic home decorator. With a little creativity, inexpensive castoffs and bargain furniture can be turned into charming and stylish furnishings for your favourite outdoor living spaces. Crafting expert BJ Berti identifies such diamonds-in-the-rough and gives them new life. FLEA MARKET MAKEOVERS FOR THE OUTDOORS features complete step-by-step instructions and photos for 25 projects, from the simple task of embellishing a plain tablecloth or making planters from old galvanized buckets, to more complex projects like applying floral decoupage to an old table or creating gorgeous and inexpensive outdoor lighting by recycling a chandelier into a decorative candelabra.
