Autumn Project Update

My autumn project has flown along and is nearly finished... me on the other hand,.... well, I am seriously lacking in speed on updating my blog! Apologies all round!

So here are some photos of the nearly finished Magical Bookstore. I hope you'll like them :)

I used some of my old bookcases to line the back wall of the bookshop. A layer of wood stain, applied with a brush and then immediately buffed with kitchen roll, gave them the old look I was after.

I then got busy starting to make the books and old papers for the bookshelves.

Then, after a little shopping trip to one of my favourite Etsy sellers Elf World Creations, the inhabitants of the bookstore started to gather....

and this is how it all looks now...
