DIY Craft Show Display

This weekend we went to work on making a display for my show in a couple weeks. Did I say "we"? I meant I helped come up with the concept and my boyfriend did the rest of the work. (He's the best!)

I was actually lucky enough to have access to a ton of pallets and wine crates at my work. So we knew we had wood for the back board but weren't sure about how to make the shelves. After some time spent at Home Depot we found the right wood (they cut it down to the length of the pallet for us) and hardware to make the perfect card display.

(Penny chaperoned.)

A lot of positioning and drilling and viola! A cute little DIY craft show display! I've seen card displays on Etsy, and other sites, for no less than $50. I'm SO glad we put a little work into it and came up with this handmade display on our own. I think it will add an extra special handmade touch to my table at the show. Now I need to get back to printing inventory! Hope you're having a happy weekend! :]
