I went to the Melrose Trading Post for the first time this weekend and I was not disappointed. There was amazing, cheap art like vintage postcards. I picked up some old greeting cards from D.C. that I'm going to frame as an ode to my hometown! One thing that I noticed, though, is that a bunch of the stands had painted furniture in the same shade of turquoise. Don't get me wrong, it looked awesome. I love the look of old, classically-shaped furniture in unexpected colors. Just last week I spray painted a coffee table a bright seafoam. However, the fact that I was seeing this at so many of the different shops gave me a weird vibe. Is this way too trendy? To me, flea market finds are supposed to be a way to get unique, different pieces for a home, and I wouldn't want to get anything that defeated that purpose. I picked up a few frames, but avoided the tables, chairs and mirrors for now.
