Getting my booth ready…part two… thrift store to table top

I really appreciate all the feedback
I have received
since announcing I am having a booth at a Girls Night Event.

If you missed the first part you can find it here: part one: sign tutorial

In part two I will show how I made
a few table top holders for my items.

I do not have a very big table area
so I knew I was going to need added height to display my items.

I hit up a couple thrift stores last week
in search of the perfect items to
be re-made into tierd towers…

I knew I would be painting most of the items
a Matte White so color did not really matter.

Here is what I found

This bowl I do not plan on painting. I love the neutral color and the slight sparkle from the beads.
I am thinking this may be the perfect home for some Cozy Blossoms.

I am not sure if I will be painting this little number.
I think it looks nice brown and it matches the brown bead bowl.

I envision it open and full of check book covers and mini wallets.

I have a vision for these two..a little glue and they will look like this…

sprayed white and tado…

This basket and wooden candle stick will be the perfect nest for some bib necklaces

This little is perfect just they way he was built.
Just needs a little makeover.
A white makeover that is

My little elastic headbands will hang so nicely from his arms!

These three beauties are pretty on their own
but the silver was not going with my color scheme.
I decided to glue them together

 now for their white wash…

I love how this piece looks like it was bought like this.

I can not wait to fill the trays with hair clips.

Theses pieces were so different when I bought them
Now they are a perfect set.

I am trying to decide on my table cloth color
what do you think?
white with a patterned table runner?
floral with a plain table runner?

I have one more cool thing to show you later this week!

  1. I love everything you did with your treasures! I love the clean and simple look of the white trays and things…your colorful items will stand out beautifully.
    Hmmm…tabletop…I’d have to see it. I think I’d go with white with a patterned runner. But whatever you do will look great no doubt!

  2. Great idea to spraypaint all these random things to make them unified. I looks great and will make anything you put in or on them shine.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. This has given me some great ideas for my own booths this summer for fairs and such! Thankyou so much! It’s amazing how things can look so fresh and nice by changing the colors and putting together differen pieces!!
