The Picker Sisters

Happy Hump Day!

I just LOVE short weeks!

Today, I wanted to share a new TV obsession with you:  The Picker Sisters.



Have any of y'all seen it?  This past weekend, SEG raved about it and told me to check it out OnDemand.  

The show actually airs on Lifetime Tuesday nights at 10 pm, but yesterday I spent a few hours watching episode after episode.

This show tells the story of Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen--best friends and designers--who travel around the country in search of junk.  They bargain with the locals and turn the junk they find into the coolest decor items for their home with the help of their contractor, Alan.

These girls have the funniest personalities and always make an adventure out of their trips; they also wear the cutest, funkiest outfits I tend to swoon over!  Tracy and Tanya have a vision and knack for design that is rare.  They can literally look at the rustiest, oldest piece of junk and envision it as the coolest table, light fixture, or accessory for your home.

Here are some of my favorites of their transformations:

Wagon Wheel and Rope Chandelier

Chain Link Table

Chairs made from mule collars--I think these would be great in a library or as "man chairs"

What do you think of their work?  

To check out the show, watch it online by clicking here!

Are you currently addicted to any new shows?

Have a great day!

  4. I like them because they are creative but I also like American Pickers because of all the genuine antiques they find.

  8. I stumbled upon a marathon of Picker Sisters the other day and watched a few episodes. They are so creative! Most of the things aren't really my cup of tea but I think it's super cool to see how the finished product looks.
