A Display Shelf for Selling Projects

The time came for Homeroad to move to a smaller
but fabulous spot at the Antique store.

You can read all about the move, the new piece, and the reasons why here.

Here we are... a new year, a new spot, and a new attitude!

Here is the spot I moved to and here is the DIY Display Piece I created for this spot.

I strategically spaced out the shelves so there would be a large space on the bottom of the cabinet for large items. I also added hooks down the side of the cabinet for more display space.

I added small clips along the inside edge of the cabinet to hang smaller things along the edges.

If you look closely you will see that not only is there a lot of room on the top of the cabinet but there is a wall with nails behind the cabinet which I'm also going to use.

This cabinet happily holds an amazing amount of stuff!

The large shelf space at the bottom worked out perfectly for larger pieces, I can even stack things in on small pedestals.

The cabinet is totally my style, filled with handmade and thrifted farmhouse style items.

  1. I love that cabinet! Wish I could find one like that I could fold my quilts into. I also like the vintage post office box. How much is that one, if you don't mind telling me? I've never priced them before, but sure would be cute either inside or outside for hanging for small garden hand tools.

    1. Thanks I love this shelf it really shows off my projects better than a whole booth can. The mailbox sold quickly for $40. Putting garden and hand tools inside is a fantastic idea!

  2. Very clever and well-thought-out display piece for the space! I need several of these for my apartment!

    1. Thanks so much :) Yes, they would be great in a home too... someone else thought for quilts! :)

  3. I LOVE that little green mailbox!!!

    1. I know isn't it adorable? I have a white one in my house for my daughter's mail when she's away :)

  4. Susan that cabinet is so nice and your ideas to add hooks, etc. is so smart. I am pinning this for later use. Good luck with your new "small" space.

    1. Thanks Lin! The hooks are really handy... I think I'm going to put some more on the back wall of the cabinet to hang more little things :)
