The Transformation !

When we first moved into booth 11 at the  Harpeth Antique Mall ( Franklin, Tn )  , back in March of 2010, this rack was one of our first pieces we used  for display.

It’s made of wood, the shelves are made of raw  plywood ( nice and sturdy , but not so pleasing to the eye ) 

We had full intentions of covering the shelves, shortly after we got settled.

  ....and then we had a life changing , upside down event experience. 

...the lower  level of our home flooded during the historic Nashville Flood, in May of 2010.

There is a lot that happened between the previous statement and this post, but I’ll save it for another time.

I am hopeful,  as I  feel like we are  starting to pick up the pieces of where we left off, right before we flooded. We are tackling a few of the projects that were on “that” to do list  from April 30th 2010.

Upgrading  this rack was one of the goals we reached this week !  

Mom brought her trusty staple gun , staples and patience. 

I stayed out of her way, as much as possible. (wink)

We found a beautiful piece of upholstery  fabric that we acquired at a tag sale a few months ago.
It was just enough to cover 4 shelves!

By the time Mom was done, I was swooning.

I thought it turned out great.
It brings  the ambience of the booth up several notches.

No more slivers from the raw plywood...and I’ll bet everything that is displayed on this piece will be admired  with perhaps a bit more respect. 

Thanks my friends! 
I appreciate you stopping by to read my latest post.
Happy Treasure Hunting!
