For the last 4 days I've been sorting out and unpacking in my cabin! My furniture was kindly put together by my Dad and by Wednesday evening it was all ready for me to do my bit! I decided to take Thursday off work so I could make good headway with the task to hand. ;o) There is still a lot to do..but it looks so much better than it did! lol
Lots of clear space and still lots of empty drawers too ! Just what I had hoped for!
I drew up a number of ideas and plans of how I wanted the furniture laid out, and they have worked out perfectly and better than I hoped for!
This is how it looked on Wednesday afternoon....what a mess! lol
There was much to do! lol :oP
It got so much worse...
...and no, this isn't better....yet! lol
This was when the last piece of furniture was brought in....and well...lots and lots of boxes of stuff! lol
I had some idea where I wanted to start...and that was the biggest and easiest things to put away!
I couldn't see my work area for boxes! lol
By Saturday it was looking better! ;o)
So by today....it's the best yet! These smaller projects will go on the above back wall two shelves.
My Dad will make me an table in-fill for the gap, so those boxes (in the side corner) won't be there. One is a made up mini-me cabin, one is a balloon that I plan to have dressed and hang from the ceiling rafters and the other one is Slug and Jiggers etc unit, so they will all be opened in time. :o)
Today I can see the area I will work and play! On this side wall I have ordered a small wall shabby chic wall unit. It's handmade and I'm just waiting for it to be painted. I plan to dress it with min's etc., it's so that the cabin looks aesthetically better! I am having my wall pocket watch clock on this wall along with some pictures etc.
I have moved my Sid Cooke Centenary House to the table. It was too deep to go anywhere else and I didn't want it hacked about.
There isn't much space in front of it...it's a big house!
My Diagon Alley will be at this end..I will have a corner shop on this side (back) wall and work my way back up the table. I have 4 more shops for the Alley that I haven't made up yet. ;o)
Some much wanted-to-find mini's! I was so pleased to see these two! lol They will go on my new wall unit when I arrives.
He's a real favourite of mine! I still need to find a few things! I still haven't come across Flourish & Blotts window bits and some supplies etc. I haven't opened all the boxes in the drawers, so tomorrow I will have a look. I'm in no hurry to find them...but find them I must! The boxes under the tables need to opened, labelled and sorted out..not a great task! I'm now on the hunt for fabric for the window curtains and along the fronts of the tables. However, the rest of the interior (windows and doors) painting must be done first. ;o)
So, it's been busy, so I may have continue with Sugar Plum's roof tiling tomorrow...well I must have some play time huh! lol
I hope you don’t mind my ramblings and madness! :o))
