One of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday afternoon is by rummaging through my local flea market for totally unique finds.
From the treasures I’ve stumbled upon at flea markets, I’ve been able to upcycle several items into adorable new DIY home additions. Often, all I need is a little inspiration like with these ideas for vintage suitcase upcycles.
I also have a particular fondness for vintage jewelry, so now my closet is jam-packed with boxes of antique keepsakes. Each piece contains a long and rich history, from long before I owned it.
But when I realized just how many ways there were to breathe new life into some of my more broken-down pieces of vintage jewelry, I couldn’t wait to try some of them on my own!
A damaged earring can easily be repurposed into a gorgeous, hand crafted brooch. With a little glue, a tangled nest of necklaces can be turned into a swoon-worthy picture frame. I can even use vintage jewels to decorate patio furniture.
