Paris Flea Market Great DIY Idea

Irwin Weiner ASID - Shopping around. That's how I love to get some great design ideas. While in the Paris flea market - I believe it was in the Marche Dauphine - I found this great item. Quick digression - Parisians refer to their world's-largest antique markets as Les Puces (meaning "The Fleas").

How cute is this little settee made from an old steamer trunk? It's a great do-it-yourself furniture project, don't you think? Even though the booth where this was being sold had a sign prohibiting photographs, I couldn't resist taking a clandestine snap and sharing it with you.

And on the subject of sharing, we invite you to go to Design2Share's feature on the Paris Flea Markets for more information and an overview video.
