We have been busy making and painting props for the Spring Fair trade show which starts this weekend. Tuesday and Wednesday was spent building the walls and floor and things took a little longer then we wanted so back again on Thursday to hopefully finish all the painting and if I am lucky I might be able to dress the stand too!
The french doors and the wooden box were in my neighbors skip and when I saw them popping out of the top I just knew a perfect new life for them. So after removing the pitted glass in the french doors and the door furniture, a good sanding to remove the varnish and then they were ready for a coat of paint. This is a lovely handmade pine wooden box and in need of some TLC........
Some louver doors ready to be cut down to make a verandah style canopy on the front of the stand.
