sneak peek: crafted booth set-up

the school desk is ready for its close-up

i’m happy to report that all that time spent building, sanding, and painting is starting to pay off. my little booth space is taking shape, through the purchase of a few new-to-me fabulous finds {an old school desk! sewing table legs!} and by getting more mileage out of previous purchases.

oldies but goodies

i’m sanding down an old stool that i’ve had for at least ten years and giving it it’s third paint job. i’ll be using the shelves and shutters that i’ve used at previous shows {like here}, freshening them up with some nice new paint. {and those old wooden crates that i love so much? they don’t need a thing.}

all this table needs is a little spray paint

i’m reusing my color scheme, too, sticking with neutrals to let the jewelry take center stage. my gray cloth backdrop can now be translated into painted walls {sooooo excited–this warm grey is what i’m leaning towards . and though i’ve always used natural elements {like linen and rocks} i’m bringing in even more with wood elements in the checkout area, tables, and some display pieces.

a bird’s-eye view of the space

i’m really pleased with how it’s coming together, and much faster than i thought it would. with any luck, i won’t be running around like headless chicken leading up to the grand opening {eek! june 29th!}. there will be a few surprises that i won’t unveil until then, but i wanted to give you a sneak peak of what’s to come!

boutique wrap-up

for those of you who couldn’t make it to the little penelope lane boutique this past weekend, i wanted to share a few photos of my booth {the pared down, less-is-more, easier-on-the-back version}. check out those doily runners i finished up on friday.

i was working solo {the hubby was out of town} so i didn’t get a chance to take photos of all the booths, but i was able to shoot my neighbors.

and what fine neighbors they were {some of my favorites!}: justin & lisa of lint & buttons, april of marine parents, and brittany & heath from a handcrafted home.

lint & buttons {crochet & leather fabulousness}

the fabulous things from lisa & justin of lint & buttons. {i came home with a new red leather cuff}

{cotton beauties} from marine parents

the lovely pouches and camera straps from april of marine parents. {i picked up this yellow & grey camera strap}

{great home decor} at a handcrafted home

and the amazing home decor from brittany at a handcrafted home. {no room in the car, otherwise those chairs…} i wish i’d gotten you a close-up of the pretty tiered trays she makes, though, they’re really fabulous. for more goodness, check out brittany’s blog. it’s filled with good ideas for diy home rehab.

a big thanks to sarah {of little penelope lane} & nancy for putting this show together. look for more little penelope lane boutiques coming soon!
