new project

Hi All
First I must say a big thank you to my new followers, I hope you enjoy my ramblings and projects, please feel free to comment I love comments, and talking about comments, thank you all for the lovely comments you have made about my shabby chic shop, they mad me feel very good and I am glad you liked what I had done. I am now going to put the shop up for sale, half of me does not want to sell it, But I have to do not have the room for all my projects.

So on to my new project, sometime ago I picked up from the kiddies shop a set of tiny chickens, they were so cute, I thought one day I would make a use of them, and that day has come.

This time I am making the chicken coop from scratch. I found a small cardboard box, and used this as my base. I sketched a drawing of the design I wanted.
I then started on the box, I shaped it and cut out the windows and doors, I lined it with mount board, using tape I put it together, I papered the ceiling and started to paper the walls, I need to finish this today.

I am using corrugated card for the roof and outside walls, I painted the roof and have left that to dry, then I covered the box in the card and then painted it, that was left to dry,

I will be working on it again today, I need now to design the inside, I think I will be having a half flooring the ceiling to have as a bedding area, will have to work on that to see if I can make it work.
anyway have a look.
