Hello dear readers, I have already started a new project, this time a Christmas room in American primetive / old style. I wanted to make this for a long time, I think it is such a beautiful warm style with lots of warm colors, so I search everywhere on the internet for ideas.
I hope I can copy that style a bit and then I make it back in a crate, the beginning is there.
Hello dear followers, first of all thanks for all the ideas, and indeed with a counter it is nicer. So the beautiful table now works as a counter, I put it with the drawers to the front I think it looks better and under the window I have made a windowsill and put all the stuff there.
And yes I have a modern cash register made of wood, made black, print on it and varnished and sheets of wrapping paper. I don't know if you have seen it, but I also made paper bags at the vegetable cupboard.
Hello dear readers, well I did a great job working on the store. Made many prints and made smaller in wordpad program so that everything fits nicely on the bottles and jars. I also made my own prints for the cookies and potato bags.
I searched for blank labels on the internet, then I put the words in with a photo program and make it smaller.
And yet it seems that something is missing ... but what?
I have made bottles with fruit juice, bought the jam jars and vegetables, the apples, oranges made with fimo.
The opening in the crate on the left ... I made it a little larger for a window and closed the opening on the right.
Here in Holland we have also many farm shops, so inspiration enough.
So first how to start, I found 2 beautiful wooden crates in a reasonably cheap store and in the right size, I sawed these through so that you no longer see the seam and then glued the 2 halves together, I painted them first with Gesso but later I found Chalk paint, much better.
I still had a few nice cupboards and I painted them too.
I call it "The old barn shop" because the crate looks like an old barn,
I also want to make a front with a window and door in it.
