Flea Market Décor
Reimagine your storage and reorganize!
YOU WOULD THINK BEING A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER, a flea-market enthusiast and an apartment dweller would create a bit of conflict and chaos when it comes to selecting pieces for my home. The aesthetic in me leans toward the vintage and visually appealing, although not necessarily functional, whereas the organizer is constantly assessing the potential storage value and flexibility.
Often moving is the primary reason we need our furniture to switch roles. As I prepared to move to my current apartment, I had to make some tough choices over what furniture could accompany me.
I am a huge advocate of having a landing space close to the front door. I had been using a vintage potting stand as a bedroom vanity that housed all my jewelry and accessories and served as my makeup console. The cheery yellow potting stand now greets everyone at the front door—providing a place for me as well as guests to set our stuff. I had added two sturdy vintage hooks on the front door side for guests’ bags and bundles and another hook for the dog leash on the opposite side. The interior stores all bedding and towels, as I lost a linen closet while downsizing. It’s a fully streamlined system.
Multifaceted furniture not only saves you money; it also embodies the true spirit of spring cleaning.
