Last spring, I found a wonderful wooden box sitting on a curb here in town. This box was too wonderful to be neglected and thrown out, so I picked it up and brought it home. It's been sitting here waiting patiently to become something other than a "catch all". The hinged lid has a checker/chess board on both sides, which it what finally made me decide it would work well as the toy store. I'm excited to finally have a scene I'll be able to keep the cats out of! LOL
Tonight, I'm cleaning the box thoroughly and deciding on wall paper. It will have a small attic space that will be papered with newsprint. The downstairs, which is the actual store, I'm still undecided on. I'm wanting to get this done in just a couple days time, so wish me luck! (Then, it can be on to the fun of making new counters, toys, shelves, etc.)
I'll have pictures to post in just a little while. See you then!
