Maysage and Birch ~ playing around with Ideas
With the dry run of the shop kit done, hubby decided to play around with some ideas to make the new shop match the Wizards and Wands Bookstore. The new shop will sit alongside Wizard and Wands, hopefully on a raised box which will eventually become a goblin bank.
Sorry about the poor quality of the pics, they were taken at various times of day and night and are all jumbled.
First, he put in some partitions so that we could have an impression of a stairway in the rooms.
Then he wood stained the top of the front of the shop... but we hated it... fab if we were making a western scene, but not very witchy!!! So out came the art mache, the walls were covered and then hubby decided to turn the 'cowboy hat' look into a 'bat look' :0)
With it starting to look more 'witchy,' Hubby darkened the windows and decided on a wooden door surround, which he is ageing and making it look worn as I type this ;0)
There is loads for me to do on this project from flagstones to fireplaces and I am going to have great fun decorating it, now that I am 'allowed' to touch it LOL
I spent yesterday 'ageing' the walls and painting the flagstones, but I will pop those pics on next week.
Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on whether to have 1 or 2 blogs. The general consensus was to stick with 1 but to re-arrange it, which I am in the process of doing!
I will be back either tomorrow or monday, with pics of a fabulous new Wizard joining us at Wizards and Wands. I am just waiting for the right light to take some clear photos.
Have a great weekend,
