I have butterflies in my tummy this week because I am taking the plunge and finally offering some organised crafting evenings to paying customers (gulp!)

I order to do that I wanted to show off a display of the kind of things they could make if they came along.  I needed a display of some sort and it had to meet quite a few criteria:

  • Portable
  • Robust
  • Quick and easy to set up.
  • Attractive (of course), but not take attention away from the product.
  • Flexible
  • Cheap or free!

A couple of months ago I rescued a wooden wine crate from the bin of the wine warehouse next door to where I work (I know, lucky girl on both counts!) and I have been saving it until inspiration hit me.

After a quick trawl of Pinterest (Any excuse ;-)) inspiration struck in combining a number of the things I had seen in my travels.

I waxed the crate using Annie Sloan clear wax and drilled holes at appropriate intervals to hold dowel rod and…

I cut a back board from left over mount board (used during making my “Typographic Kitchen Wall Art”) so the colour of that can be changed whenever I like and voilà!  Total cost £3.65 (for the dowel rod)!

Linking this up to The Turquoise Home’s “Work it Wednesday”.
