Today we have a wonderful post from Kira who blogs over at Her New Leaf. I met Kira at one of our photography workshops a year ago and she has been recently helping with oh, hello friend promotions. She is super sweet and has some lovely + helpful blog content over at her blog so be sure to check it out. Thanks Kira!

Danni is the queen of craft shows - am I right? I've been lucky enough to see her in action a few times, and her booth is always the most lovely and stylish - not to mention busiest! - at the show. Today I'm sharing a quick idea for a jewelry display that I hope would be Danni-approved. Even if you don't sell at craft shows, you could use this jewelry stand to store your own treasures at home.

This display is made from a vintage spoon collection rack. You can easily find these at any thrift store or flea market for just a few dollars, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Once you've found your perfect rack, just sand, prime, and paint! I used white semi gloss primer + paint in one. Using primer is especially important for this project because old wooden pieces like these have a dark stain that can begin to show through the paint over time.

You could also customize your display by adding some decorative details like your shop's name or logo!

This jewelry display is especially useful for craft fairs because the slots for the spoons keep necklaces and pendants hanging neatly side-by-side so they can easily be seen by your customers.

Good luck at your next show and happy crafting!
