We spray painted the unit in a nice matt black and cut peg board to fit into the spaces.
We covered the shelves with some pieces of black ultrasuede fabric and attached a clip desk lamp to the center part of the top shelf.
We raised the unit up by standing it on a box which is also used for transporting and storing display pieces. Turn the unit around and we have a wonderful free-standing display unit with attached lighting and all.
We made special tags to hang our pendant-style necklaces on the pegs with our studio info written on the back.
