I've discovered printies. This is a selection of little bits I made at the weekend for the Gift Gallery. I'm not sure about the clocks as I prefer "real" ones but I might get away with them at the back of the shop. The pictures turned out pretty good, I think. They're mounted on foamboard to give the impression of frameless canvasses. It would be too easy to get carried away with those. There are one or two other bits waiting to be made but I'll post pics of those another time.

I don't normally make bits for my properties (other than curtains, I don't mind that) but I thought I'd have a go at some magazines for the Gift Gallery. Once I figured out how to achieve it, I'm quite pleased with them. It might not be a big deal to a lot of you but to me, it's good!
The little magazine rack was originally mahogany but I painted it white to fit in with the shabby chic look I'm going for in the Gallery.
Hot on the heels of that little success I purchased a little Hat Box kit so I'll be back to let you know how I got on with them.

It's been a little while since I've posted new pics here but I've been busy decorating. The Tearooms now has a Gift Gallery. All I have to do now is get some gifts. I'm hoping for a shabby chic look but a lot will depend on the gifts I manage to get for it. That's the intention anyway.
Here are the two rooms side by side
The right hand side of the Gallery is a smaller room. I'm not quite sure yet how I'm going to link them but I'm working on that. I'll probably have the cash desk on this side.
Here's the left hand side of the Gallery. I've decorated both rooms identically as they're going to be quite busy rooms and I didn't want it to be too much on the eye. I've used a Brodnax paper with co-ordinating curtains but they've still to be made yet.
The little sign on the staircase says "Private" as this leads up to the living quarters of the owner.
