My Potting Bench - Coffee Table Story

You may have heard that I opened
my first little booth at

homeroad coffee table www.homeroad.net


It is a very small space stuffed with projects
made on my Homeroad blog. 

The grand re-opening of 
is this weekend,
the store has been completely transformed
into an emporium!


Last weekend I got a call that someone wanted to buy
the potting bench that held my entire display. 

I really hadn't intended on selling it, it was just for display.

So I did what any red blooded shop keeper would do... 
I sold it. 

On my way out the door to disassemble my booth
I grabbed the coffee table out
of the middle of my living room to replace the potting bench.

I cut it down for a coffee table. It had a bottom rack that 
I changed into a pot rack for my kitchen.

So then my coffee table was in my booth and
looking just as good as the potting bench did...

I was wondering how long it would take to sell the coffee
table and wouldn't you know it...

 it sold yesterday right before closing!

Soooo... I grabbed a sewing machine table
that was laying around... and here we go again!

I might need to consider going into the furniture business.

  7. Congratulation on your sales. My Dad was a salesman by profession, and he used to say, "The time to sell something is when someone wants it". Your booth looks very inviting, and I wish you lots of success.
