Hello, amazing friends! I’m back today with a brand new booth update! If you’re a new subscriber to my blog, welcome! I’ve had a booth here in Virginia Beach at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall since 2014. This is where I sell all the pieces I love back to life. I also sell the full line of Dixie Belle products as well as over 130 Redesign with Prima transfers!
My last booth update was back in September, and it had been a year and a half plus a pandemic since I had shared it before that, so there are a ton of pictures in that update. You can visit that post HERE.
I’ve included few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
My booth is an “L” shape. This is how it looked the last time I shared it from head on as you enter the small room where my booth is located:
And to the left:
And I had just brought in this spindle headboard bench:
The Vigorous Violet dresser sold and I brought in a couple of smaller pieces…
That included this drop leaf table and the drum table beneath it, plus the pink night table in the back:
The spindle headboard bench sold, so I rearranged some smaller items in the center…
I was working to bring something larger back in to fill the space and finally tackled this Empire dresser:
I also brought in this fun little basket case that sold almost right away…
(That chair has been in my booth the longest, but I love it as a prop!)
Then I brought in this pretty serpentine dresser:
The drum table sold and I rearranged a bit…
The Empire dresser didn’t last long, so I moved the curvy dresser and the tattoo chair to the center spot…
Y’all may have heard me mention in the past that I don’t love my paint as the backdrop for my booth. And I really miss having more space for furniture and smaller items, but until I can expand into a neighboring booth, I am kind of stuck.
Creating more space in my existing space
Or so I thought! I was determined to create more display space in my current booth!
My paint wall has looked like this for a couple of years now:
And it finally occurred to me as I was trying to figure out how I could gain more display space, that I could condense the paint.
And that is exactly what I did! It now looks like this:
I arranged all the chalk paint colors with the largest size on the front and the smaller sizes behind (instead of having them next to each other) which allowed me to get rid of a whole shelving unit!
It totally works and it is so neat and clean looking.
Most importantly, moving that shelf gave me a few more feet to display the pretty things!
I brought in this Pretty in Blue desk a couple of weeks ago:
And the back drop is so much nicer now than just all paint!
It allowed me to create another vignette with furniture and decor pieces along that back wall:
The rest of my Dixie Belle display stayed the same…
And the extra bookcase ended up over on the other side where my transfers are:
I’m so excited to have a little more display space for my furniture and smalls!
Here’s the area to the left in my booth:
The day I was rearranging, that pink bunny night table sold. I was so happy to see that go to a new home!
And here is where the shelf I had displaying transfers ended up:
I replaced it with the extra white bookcase I gained, so it’s for sale again!
It had this pretty mirrored top that came with it but I originally didn’t use it. I eventually added it back:
I just brought this sweet table in last week:
I’ve sold a few smalls since the move, so I whipped up a couple to add like this lamp:
So that’s my current booth situation!
I still have the rolling Antebellum blue buffet cart to bring in. I like to let furniture pieces cure for a week or two before bringing them in, but it’s ready.
I also have the small table that I shared last week ready to bring in.
I need to work on more smalls, so I better get to it!

I miss having all that space just for furniture!! Maybe by the next booth update one of my neighboring booths will have opened up!

How about one just for the smalls?
Here I share how I price those smalls:
With Jack home on college break, I’m not working as hard this week, but I’ll still have this small, but brand new makeover to share on Thursday:
I hope to see you then!
UPDATE: See what I did with this basket box HERE!
Have a wonderful week!
