Thrifting Thursday 8-1-13
Today I present my most recent Thrifting Thursday score.
I have had a fire place screen on my 'thrift list' for quite a while.
I've seen them before but they were always either too elaborate, too dirty/rusty or too expensive.
This one fit all my criteria and was only about $6.
I plan to spray paint it white and 'distress' it a bit, for a cleaner, more shabby chic look.
I want to use it to display earring cards at craft shows. If I have this pre-loaded for shows it should help speed up set-up. I think the screen will give a lighter feel.
Above is a picture from my Pinterest board titled Craft Show Display Ideas where I find inspiration. My display is different at each show depending on my booth space and how I'm feeling on a particular day.
I usually take a picture so I can review what worked and what could have been better.
This craft light, was a steal at $3. The 'retro mauve' color won't matter as I plan to use it for my photo taking station.
I am in the process of updating my graphics, using a fleur di lis theme. I plan to use a few in my show display as accents. This resin wall hanging was $1.98 and although fairly dirty, it cleaned up well.
I debated on buying this little jewelry stand for $3, but I think I will use it to display one of my 'magazine pieces' at shows since it will just showcase the one item. I may also paint and distress this in white.
Well, there you have it. This weeks treasures. I will post some after photo's of the screen once I get it painted and set up.
Thanks for reading today~ Happy Thrifting!
