First, a Happy New Year to my reader or Blywddyn Newydd Dda as we say around here!
As some of you may know, the Snail and I are opening a shop to sell preloved craft stuff, so all those stashes of fabric, craft materials and crafting tools that are laying around, never to be used. The shop itself is in pretty good condition but, of course, there are things we want to change. The first structural one is to remove the two inside walls that someone put up so we can have a big teaching space so we can show people how to make and mend using all the preloved stuff!
The two walls were made with nice chunky bits of wood for the framework and hardboard rather than plasterboard which means we can use that for something too. It was a relief to discover this (by kicking it to see if it would come off, very technical) as plasterboard is messy and difficult to reuse.
There is also a largish quantity of thick MDF shelves which will work very well as work surfaces.
So, the first project? A breakfast bar to act as a divider betwixt the kitchen and the teaching area. Watch this space!
