Exceptionally Eclectic – Flea Market Filled Fabulous House Tour

 

I recently had the pleasure of meeting my new blogging BFF – Denise of The Painted Home when she shared her Secrets of Throwing a Yard Sale.

We are kindred spirits – Philly girls (I grew up nearby) who never met a yard sale where we didn’t screech to a grinding halt.  She’s a designer who’s been featured at the Philadelphia Home Show and even sells her finds at Serendipity, a shop in Doylestown, PA.

Her home is always evolving around her latest yard sale find.

I grew up in a house with the same stone – one of my favorites on a house.

See how Denise made her own shutters - to mimic the look of copper!

Have I mentioned I want a screened in porch – if it’s filled with flea market fabulous like this.

Every room needs a little punch of red.

Denise painted this faux brick walkway!  You’ve got to see the before – a big slab of gray concrete.

Ugly concrete?  Paint it to look like bricks!

I’ll be showing up on Denise’s doorstep, bottle of wine in hand, and hopefully she’ll invite me to sit on her porch swing (and won’t call the cops).Stop by The Painted Home and say hi to my new BFF.P.S. Denise and I are heading to the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY on Saturday, June 8 when I’ll finally meet my partner in flea market loving crime in person.  If you’re going, tweet me at @eclecvintage so we can meet!See more Exceptionally Eclectic home tours here.
