Plant Support Frame to Linen Display

Blogger seems to have something new happening. Every time I update my post when I add a link to a party I am joining it reposts this post as if was just submitted. Strange. - 

Sunday it was FIXED ! The dates on the blogs that I followed also returned and were sorted by date - WHEW


On to my post.

This post is about one of the wooden things in the tent clean-out that was waiting for an upgrade. 

It looked like a ladder and was made with hinged 2x4 and 1inch dowel rungs, unpainted (maybe for) garden plant support. Stretched out it was about 10 feet long and in an inverted V it was about 5 feet tall.

DH added short chains (recycled) to the sides so the ladder-like stand would stay in an inverted V shape.



I painted it with Fusion Mineral Paint, one coat.



Yes I did have a plan.



It is now in my booth holding vintage hangers, table cloths and crochet pieces.

One more piece of something that was interesting made useful and out of that tent.


Thanks for dropping by.

  1. What a great display. I once had a booth but didn't have a handy man around to do the things that make help in presentation. I learned quickly that presentation is everything. I was in business with a girl who didn't get that. She changed everything to just wide open space instead of booths. It looked for like a furniture store and the business didn't last long. It was her money and she wasn't willing to invest. I pulled out and started my booth again. Back and forth, in business and out. It was hard to make it in a small town.

  10. When I edited a blog post and clicked update, blogger displayed it as a new post with a new date. So, I just sent it to draft until I could figure out what was happening. I keep meaning to write a post, update the old one, and then post the new one so the old one will not be on top. I thought it was my not knowing what I was doing.
