I’ll be the first to admit that between working full time and parenting, sometimes certain things fall by the wayside. Laundry, blogging, creating beautiful displays and vignettes in my own booth at work. Sometimes things wind up a bit neglected.
A few months ago, I made up a bunch of cute little lavender sachets for my booth. I priced them and brought them in and had no idea how to display them. They ended up in various random places throughout the booth and didn’t sell very well.
WELL NOT ANYMORE! I picked up a super inexpensive luggage stand and a vintage suitcase with pretty pink lining and got to work.
I used good old trusty chalk paint to take my display from sad and mismatched to fab. Tea Rose from Dixie Belle this time, in case you were wondering. It coordinates beautifully with the lovely pink lining in the suitcase.
Removing the upholstery staples to replace the ribbons on the luggage stand was by far the worst part of this project. I had to do it twice because the ribbon I originally used wouldn’t hold the weight of the suitcase and merchandise. Uphostery staples are a huge pain.
The suitcase was very simple. The outside was in good condition and only needed a wipe down. Some twine and hot glue took care of the interior.
Once all of that was done, I could put it all together. I can’t wait to stage this in my booth! This would also be really cute for photos and mementos at home.
P.S. I’m now realizing that I took no pictures of the whole during process. This is not the place for photo tutorials, friends! Seriously, though, I’ll try to do better in the future!
