Booth Progress

SONY DSC

Slowly but surely I am getting things done in my booth.  While I hope I recoup the money I am spending to decorate it {I’m trying to keep costs down}, I guess you have to spend money to make money.

Recent additions include this dress form {for display only}I got at Christmas Tree Shop.

For $59.00 it seemed like a good investment.  It is wearing one of my embellished adult aprons and I also hung some totes off the shoulder.  She fills one back corner and brings a little bit of height to the space.

I also found this fold-up tray table at the local antique mart for $35.00 {also for display only}.  I didn’t have to do anything to it as it was already black.

This is pulling double duty, too, by holding things on top, but I also used the two handles on the side to display a couple of tea towels.

I also decided to do an inexpensive treatment using wide burlap garland.  I found the burlap at Hobby Lobby and just put some screws in the wall to swag it on.  Using some rubber bands I did poofs on each end.

I think it makes for a nice effect.  Plus it covers up some of that white wall space near the top of the booth.

I am just waiting to get a couple of bi-fold doors off my friend Sue and, once they are painted, they will be put into place.  I hope to have that done next week.  I’m also looking forward to our community garage sale here the weekend of May 3rd to find some furniture pieces that I can paint up and get in the booth.  Hopefully, I’ll have more progress to share next week.

Hi Kathy,
WOW your space looks great. You have really done a lot. I want to come and shop. LOL~~ I see some wonderful treasures here.
The burlap wall garland is a great idea to fill in. Years ago I did this with tulle when that was the look. I love the burlap.
I bet you are having lots of fun.
Hope you sell lots.
Have a nice weekend.

Your space is looking great Kathy! My booth right now is starting to look pitiful....I'm needing more inventory! I hit a few yard sales this weekend and was able to find a few things. Now, I need to get to work on painting them. Enjoy your day, Gail
