Default I have an idea for my gridwall

Ok, so see if this would work. I want the back of gridwall to have a solid background so that my items show better. I thought my mother in law had a tent that had the drop down walls and so I thought that was going to be perfect. Well she told me today that hers doesn't have the drop down walls. So, I got to thinking of what I could do to cover the backs in the easiest way possible. I was thinking that I could just take material and cut it the size of each panel (2'x6' for instance) and then have my mother in law put metal groomets in each corner. That way I could just zip tie the material to each corner of the panel. Would that be to much work? I was thinking about doing the whole back in one piece of material but the I thought about the craft fairs that aren't necessarily going to be 10x10. I want something that will be easily adaptable to any space requirements. What do you ladies think? Good idea or bad? This is my first show so I really have no idea!

A lot of work one time as in making the panels or you think a lot of work to attach them for each show? I don't mind a one time lot of work thing but I would like something simple for each show.

I think it would be a lot of work just the first time to get them ready

That sound like a good idea. I was kinda thinking of something like this too, but have not found the time to put it into action. I think it would only be work the first time. Afterward you could clip or ziptie them very quickly. I would think you would want them in 2' or 4' widths or whatever 2 or your panels are so you could easily adjust you space. Of make it the whole 10 ft but maybe add something like velcro or ties where you could pull it back for different sized booths. Sorry I'm kinda thinking as i write, but those are my thoughts.

I got some sheer panels at big lots and use these to attach them straight to the gridwall. Clip them kind of underneath and from the back so that they don't show. It's a quick and cheap way to get a backdrop. Voila! This was a small setup that took the place of a table setup.

Hmmmm really liking this idea. Thanks for the pic. I'm a visual person. I was just thinking this morning that I have another show at the end of November and of all things it's a round table display - like the tables that seat 8 people. I thought Hmmm maybe I could ask them if I could just do a freestanding display in place of the table. This is a great way to do just that! Thanks!

Polychic- your set up looks great!!

Cristi-I bet you could use curtains, shower curtains, or even table cloths to achieve a similar look.

I dont have a picture on this computer but I bought table clothes and use them the same way,with clips. I also purchased at HL after Christmas several nice cloths for 90% off. Just in case you want to change for each season.

I just use queen size sheets. For a long time I just used clothes pins to attach it to the grid walls, but finally sewed some ribbon on the top in a few places so that I could tie it to the top of the grid wall - think of the ribbon like the ties on an apron - just tie the ribbon around the top of the grid wall.
