Craft Fair/Boutique Booth Set-up

I thought since it is craft fair season I would share my booth set up with you.

Our home is about 100 years old, and when we moved in, one of the sheds had a stack of a whole bunch of old doors from the house!  SCORE!  I thought that would be a cool back drop for craft fairs!

This is what it looked like the first craft fair I used them at.  I hoped that the doors would attract a lot of traffic into my booth, but it didn't bring as much as I hoped it would.

Here is how we got the doors to stand up.  Along the base there are 2x6's. They have holes drilled in them.  The doors also have holes drilled in the bottom, and we use dowels to match them together.

At the top between each door there is one of these hooks. And that is enough to hold them stable.

After being disappointed with how little attention the doors got, I spent a little time looking at the first picture and trying to decide what I could do to make my booth space look better.  I decided I should paint the doors bright colors!

Some of the doors were in pretty rough shape, but nothing a little sanding couldn't fix.

I love them SO MUCH more now!

Now I just need to work on the rest of my booth!

Never miss a new post!


  1. I love how you painted your doors, they look great! They should definitely draw attention to your booth with those fun bright colors! I know I would stop by! :)

  2. The bright colors look great now. They would sure draw me over to your booth. Also I noticed a cute little snowman in the corner, love that!

  3. Love this setup, and your picture clock is so cute.

  4. What a difference in how your products show up now. Can't wait to see what you do for the rest of the booth. I'm planning on doing craft shows in the future, so I'm gleaning ideas right now. I'm visiting from Take it On Tuesday. Have a great week!


  5. Those hooks on top of the doors are a brilliant idea.... I am so glad that that is ALL they need to stand up!
    Your both is terrific....
