My display building services were challenged with a contradiction. Can you combine a masculine window and store trim theme with a female sentiment?
The concept of a mechanic, automotive theme combined with some positive affirmations was the winning idea my boutique client chose. Off and running, I had a great time rummaging, replicating and altering automotive parts and car related goods.....continued
One of the more challenging elements was realizing a chandelier out of automotive lamps, lights and reflectors. I really like the way it turned out.
Fall is always a transitional time mentally, we're going from the sunny vitamin D rich, fun filled lazy long days of summer into the fast paced, shorter nights and days of Fall. I figured some positive affirmations would easily be accepted by passers by.
Sometimes I can't find exactly what I had in my mind, so I have to build it into fruition. Such was the case with a vintage look tire merchandising rack. I wanted it to be used as a clothing rolling rack. Sadly, existing racks were way too costly and the proportions didn't accommodate merchandising of clothing. So, I gathered up some supplies and built one from scratch.
Adapting readily available pieces is always on my mind. I was lucky enough to find these old power tool display fixtures and converted them into jewelry and shoe merchandisers. It's amazing what some grungy faux oil paint effects and swinging hammer dents will do!
As with most of my display trims, these pieces will be available for adoption after we switch things out to holiday come mid November. Hit me up if you have any questions or want to make an offer on any of the pieces.
Welcome to my Embellishments Journal, it's a new feature. I will be posting about some of our projects, sharing pictures and interesting things. Chime in, ask questions and keep your arms and hands inside the ride until it comes to a complete stop. -Aaron
