Not sure where this goes, so I guess it goes here?!

My craft show display! about 3$ for the 4 by 2 foot pegboard, 5$ for 2 sets of pegs, 6$ for 2 cans of Watermelon gloss indoor/outdoor Krylon, and presto!

It's so perfect for my pieces, because I have so many one of a kind pieces that I need to display at once, it can potentially hold SOO much stuff. For a larger show I can use pegs with hooks that stick straight out and are like eight inches long with identical pieces stacked behind each other and not have to restock empty spots all the time too! And when I get home it stores everything!

I wanted to use it and make sure I loved it in action before finishing it, I'm going to frame it so it has more support, right now I have a 3 foot wooden dowel tied to the back lengthwise.

Somehow my mom and I both forgot to get a picture of my display in action because the show was always too crowded, lol, a good thing though Grin

I suppose it would cost about ten more for the easel, but I already had that. Need to paint it too. Obviously this will not work quite this way if it's outdoors and windy, still need to work that out, but I have months before THAT matters in NY!

AWESOME!  Pegboard is da bomb - and I love what you did with it and your packaging is darling!  Cheesy   YOur idea of framing it is excellent, too!

Great work!  I love pegboard!  It's so full of promise and options and has such a timeless/old-school vibe about it. Back in college I worked at a building supply retailer/hardware store and there are SO many cool, esoteric "pegs" available.  Siiiiiigh.

Great color selection!  You'll definitely need to anchor it, if you're outside.  If you plan to keep using the easel, you might also want to use sandbags to keep it upright.

That is sweet! I would never have thought to use pegboards for a display  Roll Eyes After I installed one in my room I dont know how I ever got along without one! Great use of an old product  Grin

The easel was sort of incidental, I was initially going to have it flat at the back of the table, hinged to a piece flat on the table, but we didn't feel like bothering making it at the last minute! I may still make another that way too.
 I still want a whole wall of pegboard too, I imaging I'll be playing with it for awhile!

Pegboards are cool for lots of things.  I have them in my craft room for everything from tools to supplies to idea books that I hang on a string.

I was also happy the paint actually stuck to the board, I was worried it'd just scratch off.

It also has the little u-shaped sort of hook which is perfect for holding a handheld mirror, like the 6-8 inch ones on a handle, which is useful, depending on what your selling.

That's a great idea for a booth display...we are always looking for new ways to display and make it easy for our customers to get to the bows.  I'm sure I could figure out some way to use the same set-up and display our hair bows.  I think the paper tag the bow is clipped onto would hang nicely from those hooks.  Thanks again for sharing the pictures so we could "borrow" your idea for our shows too!
