DIY Vendor Display Rack To Hang Merchandise On... pursuing my dreams

In my last post...
I left you with some sources of inspiration I found online to develop and reach your goals and dreams in life.

I hope to continue sharing the progress I have made in my life as time goes on... by writing my dreams down on paper, creating a vision board, speaking over those dreams daily and working toward those goals.

One area in my dream pursuits that I wanted to give some more time to is my art. 
 Just to recap... I quit my job back in 2007 to pursue a dream of being a full time artist.  I began painting and selling online... steadily developing a customer base and business.  However, when the economy crashed in 2008... so did my sales and I eventually quit selling art altogether.

Fast forward til now... My mother and I started renting an antique booth last year.  She sells antiques and vintage items and I try to sell my art.  The problem with that is I have never had an art display or a real art presence in the booth... I have just "thrown" my paintings in there and hoped they would sell.

So... that is what I have been working on lately... ways to display and make more of an artistic statement in our booth.

I had some blank ornaments packed up for a few years now and I recently got them out and started painting.  I realized that I did not have a way to hang them... 
so I got my DIY juices flowing and came up with this floor display rack...



This is how I started...
