22 Sublime Junk-Inspired Flea Market Transformations: Features from The Talent Scouting Party

Pin It

Oh, my goodness! I could feature bloggers all day long! You girls are amazing! I really want to feature all of you that linked up your flea market transformations to The Talent Scouting Party, but I finally had to make myself stop! These feature posts take a long time!

These projects are all about junk-inspired flea market transformations. Are you familiar with junking? It involves repurposing and refurbishing items that others would probably throw away. It's about seeing beauty and potential in the mundane and transforming the mundane into the sublime! For inspiration, see below...
