I thought I would share some of my favorite wood decor items from the flea market. I have been shopping the market for as long as I can remember. We have lived in Tennessee since 1988 but I can’t remember my first visit to the Nashville Flea Market.

Some of these photos go back to 2012 but I was shopping the market long before then. I first started posting pictures of the market in 2012 just to have something to write a blog post about. Well, the first post was a hit. So I kept posting photos of the monthly markets and I didn’t miss many of them.

I probably have thousands of photos if the flea market and most are just sitting on my external hard drive. I can’t share all of the photos I take each month because you would get tired of scrolling through them.

Reclaimed Wood Decor

Old wood doors, architectural salvage pieces, chippy painted anything are just a few of the things that catch my eye when strolling down the rows of vendors. I usually just shop the outside vendors. They have the kind of stuff I’m looking for.

What would you do with the white chippy fencing? I would put a wreath on it and set it on my fireplace mantel.

The antique mantel is too pretty for words. I’ve seen a lot of photos where homeowners just mount them on the wall as decor.

wood furniture to paint

There used to be a lot of old, vintage, and antique furniture at the market but less and less the past year or so it was open.

purple Adirondack chair

I love this bluish purplish colored chair with the chippy paint.

old green tool box

The green tool box is one I brought home with me. I just cleaned it up and added a piece of iron detail.

antique house shutters

I have a thing for wood shutters. The older the better.

antique wood bed

The white bed is what caught my eye in this grouping of old things.

As you can see there is a theme in all my photos…..chippy paint. That yellow door is perfect.

antique wood gates

Old gates make neat headboards.

wood ladder painted yellow

I think I bought the yellow ladder but then I sold it.

It took me a while to figure out what this was. It is an antique freezer.

old bird house

The birdhouse looks a little odd. I think it must just be the top of a birdhouse.
