Anyway, here are some photos of the inside, all ready for me to fill over the coming months....
My first job was to paint the interior walls and I used the same chalky peppermint green emulsion which I have used on the window panes.
When that had dried I put the flooring down. This floor is green marble look sticky back vinyl!! I was going to lay individual mosaic floor tiles, but I found the vinyl when rummaging for something else in the garage and it was just perfect :)
Hywel has busily been making me some shop shelves and counters. This time he used plain pine for the carcass as I wanted to paint it and it would be a travesty to paint meranti, although he insisted on using meranti for the lower shelves, which I waxed.
Here they are in progress...
I made sure he notched out the edges of the counter, I think it softens the look...
Oh, I nearly forgot... before putting the floor down, I painted the ceiling in the dark green of the bays and front door and sprinkled a few little gold stars on the wet paint that had come off the tinsel Janice had wrapped around my fabulous give away present. They will probably fall off after a few days, but they look quite festive at the moment!
So there it is, just the door to put back on and its all ready for chocolate fountains, candy floss and sweets :)
Just have to sit here and wait for christmas now :)
I hope everyone who has snow is staying safe and warm and doesn't have to venture out too far. We had more snow overnight and there is more forecast for tonight, so the car is firmly parked up and the legs have to walk to the shops! LOL
Our little cat Pumpkin loves the snow and whilst the sun is out, it is hard to get her to come in....
Back next week with pics of the Olde Abbey at Christmas and Santa's Cabin :)
