before: square bulletin board covered in cheap fabric for $5 on the clearance rack at hobby lobby
after: cute little clip board for hanging/displaying earrings, or any other small lightweight thing that could be attached to paper and clipped on!i used an iron photo easel to make it stand up on the table. done & done!
before: shabby chic style tabletop floral birdhouse fence thingy (maybe supposed to be used as a background for indoor plants?) for $4 at goodwill
after: tabletop hanging necklace display for craft shows!
how to: I started by removing the little birdhouses & attached grass by unscrewing the poles & gently pulling them out. Then I used a little green paint to dab over the little painted flowers to make it more leafy & less floral, & painted the pink ribbon detail into two green leaf details. i also dabbed on some green paint over the gray checkerboard edges. i added a few little nails into the top of the display (corresponding with each fence point) to hang the necklace hangtags. add the necklaces & presto! show-ready! I really love how these two cheapies transformed, & was really excited about how much they added to the look of my craft show booth! i’m getting there, slowly but surely.
