This was going to be a store...here they seemed to be selling all of the stuff that got kicked out of the bigger house (The Medford).
My son laid down for his nap, and since I don't get a lot of time for myself so I took advantage of it! I electrified, wallpapered, repaired the staircase, it was glued all wrong, and decorated in 2 very enjoyable hours. I added lighting painted the walls pale yellow and wallpapered the larger walls with a very pretty delicate flower pattern. But it still wasn't quite what I wanted......
Now we bang down all the walls. Yes, with a hammer, and start making it into something smaller and a little more fun:
By using angles and stucco finish, it's starting to look like something very authentic. Don't you think?
A close up of the wallpaper and border.
The floor is undone both in and out. It will probably be a coffee stirrers, since I like to use those. Outside will have a sidewalk and some light landscaping. Now we make some trim and decorate a little to help get some ideas going:
A nice sign out front says "Toy Shoppe, Est. 2001" Some Topiaries at the door to show you that they charge a lot for everything inside.
Corey loves to play here. ( he is 10 now, this was when he was 4)
March 2002 - Let's get it ready it for a show or two...I will use Coffee Stirrers for the flooring,
and put some colorful toys everywhere.
Looking through the side, the roof come off also and has spot lights in it. All wiring is attached to the roof, so I can acually leave that off for a show when I cant plug it in. The kids that visit really enjoy this shop.
Now its complete!
