Who knew it would take me so long to get a 8’ x 9’ booth ready???? I had no idea that I would stress out so much about the set up.
I got the most incredible display piece from another antique store who still had it from a vendor who was no longer there. The owner of the business first told me it wasn’t for sale, but his wife came in and offered to call the owner. Low and behold, she wanted to sell it and I wanted to buy it!
So, I had my big Wow piece for the booth. But, since it’s wasn’t for sale, I lost a lot of precious floor and wall space that should have been prime booth space. I decided not to fret and just carry on.
Eventually, I decided to put a price on the display piece. Of course it’s totally overpriced right now, but I want to keep it for a while. When and if I decide that I need that space, I will lower the price and really try to move it. But, for now I really love how it looks plus it holds a lot of stuff.
The legs are two old window frames sans the glass
There are two wooden shelves attached to the bottom panes
An old panel door serves as the table top
The top piece has more shelving running between smaller windows and a decorative arch
White iron corbels and wooden cut outs hold it together while adding nice embellishment
Candylights add soft lighting to this area
The door display was my project for the Gorilla Glue Party Event @ DIY Club Inc.
I didn’t win, but I got a great jewelry display unit !
I would love to hang a few vintage hats on the lower part of the door.
Better views of the jewelry display area
I need to get busy making more jewelry.
This piece is opposite the jewelry display doors at the opening of the booth
Together, they create a smaller opening into the booth
I attached an old piece of tin to the back of the bamboo shelf
to keep the pillows from falling out
I used the top of this wonderful headboard here last Christmas!
I stripped the old finish and used a satin varnish to bring it back
to its original beauty before putting it in the booth
The back of the tin has a shabby, old paint finish
It serves as more hanging space
Left side view of the booth
My sister found these wonderful Queen Anne chairs
They are still wearing touches of old green paint from an earlier time
I recovered the seats with old burlap bag fabric
Look how gorgeous the wood is on the back
Great space below the display unit
Shabby white fern stand and vintage brass plate racks
Vintage books and crocheted doilies
This was a great spot to rest when I was setting things up!
What could be more romantic than cherubs, silver hearts,
vintage baskets, Candylights, and lavender buds?
I adore this sweet little mirror
Thanks for taking the tour and if anything ever brings you to
Central Alabama, stop and play for a while.
I am joining the fun at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.
