Despite my previous history of falling down, I’m referring to the season.
Not the action.
The last day in my tiny space
I’ve been in my expanded antique mall space at Monticello Antiques for almost 2 months now and so far, so good.
How it looked the day I moved in
It’s been great to be able to turn around in my new space without knocking over a display of sharp, rusty objects. Actually, it’s been great to have a space I can turn around in, period.
How it looks this week. Fill 'er up!
What’s been selling?
Display shelves were $2 each at yard sales. I added the wallpaper in back.
Lots and lots of small things.
And not so many big things. I think I’ve rearranged my furniture in just about every possible configuration so far. Fingers are crossed that a dresser-loving buyer comes along soon.
I took the inexpensive and easy route with the wall coverings. The back wall is covered with one giant painter’s drop cloth from Home Depot which I think cost about $20. It was a little too wide so I stapled it in place and added a few pleats (also stapled because I’m fancy) on either side.
It was also too long but I just let it puddle on the floor since it’s hidden by all those dressers that haven’t sold.
And when I was browsing in the paint department for drop cloths, I decided to cover the smaller side walls with brown all-purpose masking paper. I bought a roll with an endless, lifetime supply for about $10. So far I’ve used about 50 cents worth of it.
That concludes our tour for today. Please feel free to take a dresser with you when you exit the building.
