Here are some behind the scenes photos I had laying around of my booth under construction.. This was a fun project, and I’m stoked that The Old Sugar Mill let me display my wedding photography !
There are many reused parts that make up my booth. I needed the entire fair to cost me less than $300.00, so reusing and repurposing items was not only responsible, but cost effective as well!
Items reused/recycled to make this section:
- construction adhesive
- latex paint
Items reused to make this section ( the upper wall)
- leftover Gray primer
- Old picture frames from Goodwill
I bought some spray primer and spraypaint and made all of the frames a nice crisp white color… shabby to chic in 20 minutes!
The best deal of all… my laminate flooring! This was removed from a home and destined for the trash. I rescued it very inexpensively, and had more than enough for my showroom floor!
The tables were the only completely new items… except for the paint I covered them with. The tables were made from table rounds at Home Depot, fence posts, and wooden legs.
I had fun building my DIY wedding fair booth, and I can use this setup for quite a few bridal fair’s to come ( reusing is the whole idea!). Next time you are faced with a big project, search craigslist, check out an anthropologie store and see how they use “junk” and make it look fantastic, and break out the toolbox!
