On Display...

While in San Juan Batista awhile back, I bought this turning display piece for $6.00. It was totally an "impulse buy" as I wasn't sure what I could use it for... at first.
 Fast forward to me trying my hand at playing with some sashay yarn. Whoa, that yarn is fun and super easy to work with. The end result? Ruffled scarves up the wazoo~ I was at a lost as how to display the ruffled scarves until I remembered the revolving white rack I had bought. A quick makeover was in order, and pronto! I unscrewed the hooks that were on this display piece. I may or may not use them in the future, who knows. For now, this piece is all about hanging long scarves from those bars at the top! I covered the entire piece with some pages from an old Sears catalog. Once the piece was covered, I inked the edges with some brown and black ink and then I coated the paper with some clear sealer. A little bit of tan and brown paint to cover the white metal bars and the make over was complete!

Loving it!

I also made another cork board to use as a display, this one is going to sit on my table. The metal stand was a $2.00 yard sale find, the cork board, old frame and the fabric were all $1.00 each--- so for a total of $5.00 I have another fabulous display piece.

I participated at the Artist Market again last night and again had a fabulous time!!!
big hugs,

I absolutely love what you have done with the stand.. Genius idea to use an old catalog to cover..
Both pieces are beautiful.

This turned out so cute! I'm preparing for an upcoming art fair, and hope to find some inexpensive solutions for hanging my paintings. I feel encouraged that with a little imagination, I can get the job done! Thanks for sharing your treasure.

Wow! Your scarves are fabulous but I think I love the stand even more! Beautiful job on this - and the cork board, too. It's very handsome!
