Throwback with Fresh Vibes - Display Risers Tutorial
One of my most popular blog posts was a tutorial for creating these Display Risers. People have been sharing it all over Pinterest lately! The post is actually from five years ago, so it's actually one of the VERY first things I every posted about - I'm so happy it's been useful for others.
To go waaaaaaaay back in time, there's a story behind the risers. I was gearing up for my first "show" with Senn & Sons - the San Francisco Birth & Baby Fair. I sat down with my friend Brooke Bryand, who was there sharing her photography business, and we hashed out all the things that would make great booths. After our brainstorm session, I created a Mood Board for my booth and then created some detailed plans for pulling it all together.
2. MAKE IT A CHALKBOARD!
Paint the whole thing with a custom-colored chalkboard paint (I like Benjamin Moore paints and now ALL of the colors can be made into chalkboard paint!). You could display your items with little descriptions or prices - so cute. (Get inspired by this display from Julie Ann Art.)
3. MARBLEIZE IT!
Try covering with gorgeous faux marble adhesive paper for a glam look.
Anyway, it was so fun to go back to check out the humble beginnings of Senn & Sons (which is still pretty humble, I might add). It's a good reminder that a little creativity mixed with a whole lot of elbow grease yields some really fun results!
