I needed something old and country themed to display my Country Sampler magazines in at my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall.
I took some short pieces of some aged barn lumber we had, and simply cut and pieced them together. In a type of form that he thought would house magazines. And, in my opinion it’s ok!
After taking the photo, I sanded it down with some sheets of coarse sand paper and then sealed it with some craft sealer. I didn't want anyone to get splinters while reaching for the magazines.
I wish I'd taken a photo of it finished. If I did, I can't find it yet.....
And by the way, after being in my craft booth as a display item only, I had calls from the store that people wanted to purchase this. So I priced it for only $9.99 and it sold immediately.
Here is a photo of the second one he made:
I loved the first one better, but with old barn lumber, hardly two are ever the same.
