I have been doing my Blue Peter bit today.
I braved the depths of my husbands workshop and found some old matchpots of paint and a large tin of white emulsion. Then using plastic food trays I mixed 3 of the colours into the white until I had 3 pastel shades that I was happy with.
|The bears and rabbits above are available in my Folksy and Etsy shops|
I now have the two 3 box display units plus the two box one which will have my Mum's old suitcase on top, open to display one or two bears. I have seen mohair bears displayed in old suitcases before and thought how well they went together. With two folding chairs covered in knitted blankets and my work table and chair I am hoping enough floor space will be covered to make the unit look 'lived in'. I also have two little folding picnic tables if I need them.
My brother-in-law has made a start on the hanging sign for above the door. He enjoys doing that sort of thing and is quite good at making decorative things from wood.
The next project will be working out how to hang information cards and photos from the (very blank, very white) walls without putting nails or screws in (we are not allowed to).
