Hi, I’m back with my current display. I really like it and thought I would share it with you.
My family suggested that I use a color that would “pop” my displays. So this is what I came up with.
I’m finally happy with it, and may tweak it once in a while.
I also started to make unique picture frames using the same shells, stones, metal detecting finds, etc. that I use for my jewelry.
So my new display had to accommodate them.
At first I was hesitant to combine my frames with my natural jewelry, but they worked very well with each other and they seemed to break “the glaze” and people stop to look and are more relaxed.
By periodically changing the burgundy color with tan / camoflauge / green or sea blue, it gives it an entirely different look.
I have recently enlarged the metal grids and use a darker burgundy in back, and as you can see the 2 tables are a different size, so I offset them rather than make them even.
Sometimes the space will allow another table, but either way the colors are the same.
I think neatness is so important and my display encourages it.
I’ve also taken away nearly all my extra knick knacks (shells, old horse shoes, etc) and I try for an uncluttered look. That really helped with the look.
I also needed narrow rugs in front because the old boardwalk has spaces and I’ve seen jewelry, etc. just roll down between them.
Besides that the rug adds the finishing touch to it. What do you think? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for all your info. I’m always reading what you send and have picked up alot of ideas.
