BOOTH TWEEKS and SOME EXCITING NEWS!

Today was a work day.I actually planned on taking a day off but as luck would have it~ I sold a big ole chippy table in my booth at The Depot yesterday which meant a booth "re-foof" was in order.
I had a really nice shabby desk that I was just itchin to put out so we took it up there today to fill in the space. Mr.OTM would have much rather been at home watching the play-offs.
Trust Me. I was living on the edge to even suggest that we browse after I got the booth together. I was getting constant reminders like " you said you wouldn't be long" LOL! He was so sweet to help me and even sweeter when I knew he wanted to go and I asked him to back to the truck to get my camera. I explained that it wasn't for ME* wink*wink* it was for THEM~ meaning ALL OF YOU! Sooooo because it was YOU, I got the camera!! *WINK*
Here goes!old galvanized tub = perfect centerpiece
tried my luck at shooting a pic of a window with alot of light coming in...Jami (freckled laundry)~ I tried your tips and this was the best outta 7 ....I'll keep practicing

Huge C*H*U*N*K*Y corbels...think they would make awesome lamps!



Ironstone creamer and vase? Or do you think it's a sugar bowl just missing it's lid?



yarn balls in a concrete planter= easy care if you don't have a green thumb!



Here's the shabby, chippy desk!





New price tags this year!






old hardware=awesome



a chippy desk needs an even chippier chair
...ya know for texture and stuff



laying on the floor taking shots.....look out Pioneer Woman! Ha!!
chippy goodness...



this old buttermilk cabinet looks great sitting OR flip it upside down (or right side up~ depending) and it looks as awesome hanging up.




old tole candle holder



Now can you just imagine what my EXCITING NEWS IS?? Wellllllll
I am EXPANDING MY BOOTH here at THE DEPOT!
That means:
MORE CHIPPY
MORE WORN
MORE RUSTY
MORE TATTERED
MORE TORN
MORE CRUSTY!!
The booth RIGHT NEXT TO ME became available and I was lucky to get it.
So come the FIRST WEEK IN FEBRUARY look out for a whole NEW BIGGER BOOTH DISPLAY!!!
I'm looking forward to putting it all together.
I also have some projects in the works. If we get the snow/ice storm they are predicting I may just be able to get a few of them done in the next few days!
Stay tuned. :0)

Good deal, being able to expand! Having a larger booth means larger furniture! Can't wait to see what direction this takes! The booth you have now is fabulous! I would love to be able to shop at the Depot! One of these days!

Absolutely Fabulous Booth Re-foof as you put it... and the excitement of expanding that's great!!
What hard working fun you will have setting it all up.
I used to do booths for about 10 years so I know how much work it is but equally as exciting doing it just right!!
I love all your goodies..
May god Bless you three fold for all your hard work!!

Love the booth! fyi - the ironstone pieces are a tooth brush holder and shaving mug from an old wash set (the pitcher/bowl kind?) Looks like I'm going to have to take a trip down south to visit!

Beth,
Well ain't that just dandy! You're telling me that when I finally get to meet you and the mister...he's gonna twist my head off for making him miss part of the game...thanks a load!
The booth looks wonderful...love that second photo. I enlarged it to take in all the details and was gobsmacked to say the least.
Wow...doubling the fun in 2011. Can't wait to see what you fill it with.

Love the look of your stuff and how you put it all together.

Tammy said...

The booth looks amazing. You are expanding huh? I had the opportunity to take a space there in December but I felt a bit overwhelmed and truthfully - scared. I live about 2 hours from there and wasn't sure I could do it. I am wondering if I made the wrong decision now.
I will have to visit again and see how the place looks.
