Good Bones for Starters

Whew! I am exhausted. I have spent the last two days working on my new booth.
I finally left the antique mall today feeling like I had some "good bones" to work with now.
I can get all the filler items ready and placed. (Margo, does anything look familiar?)
There will be more layers to come. It kind of reminds me of when I take all of my Christmas decorations down and the house looks so empty.

This is what I arrived to this morning. I spent the entire day finishing the burlap walls, making burlap roses, pricing and arranging. Nobody would have accused me of working too fast.
Nope, not today...

I love the burlap walls. Will you share how you put them up. Your space looks really great!

Thanks.
I just used my handy dandy electric staple gun. The walls had some wood trim at the top and bottom, so that helped. I covered up the pegboard, but if I need to use it, I just wiggle the bracket in the burlap. I can nail through it too. The first ten yards of fabric I ironed the crease down the middle. The last yardage I put up without ironing and I can't tell any difference. Live and learn!

It was good to finally meet you, Cindy. I am excited you are moving your booth downstairs. I know I will probably be one of your best customers!
