A short post to share some pictures with you to show you the progress of the antiquaire shop.
I cut, built and painted the left side. The display cabinets are deeper so that bigger pieces can be displayed.
JJ, my cat # 2 (out of 4) helped me with the cutting....
I painted the 2 columns with a feather to make them look like marble. A good trick to know.
This is the 1st step. Tomorrow when the layers are dry, I'll use the feather again for the darker veins. Painting marble takes time and I learn...by myself.
Then I tried to assemble the ceiling, the 3 walls and the floor to get a better idea.
I have the project to make ironwork above the doors, something like this....
I think it looks very French. We call this small window above a door "une imposte"
Add some furniture and it starts looking like a shop...
That's all for today. Step by step, the boutique is coming to life.
Have a nice day!
