More progress...

It's a rainy, wet, rather dull day here in Montgomery today, which is just as well because my time has been spent indoors working on the workshop rooms.

Significant progress has been made over the last few days, although there is still quite a bit of painting to be done and furniture to source it's all coming together nicely.

This is the workshop room, there are three tables in here and the plan is to get four people around each table.

Gav found this old school sign ages i thought i'd go for a 'school' theme maybe.
along with these lovely old school posters from the 1950's(ish) which i thought i'd get framed to put up in this room.

Lizzie checking things out

 Lovely bright room

 This is the 'supplies room' (excuse the mess. it's going to take a month of Sundays to sort.
 I procured this gorgeous haberdashery cabinet from the shop store room for use in here, it looks really good with the old Victorian painted housekeeper cabinets (i'm just about to refit the doors on the blue one).

This room will be the 'tea/coffee/cake room and general chatting/relaxing room.  I need more chairs but it's looking fairly good so far.
 need new table cloths and will fill the 'very old' dresser with gorgeous things.
 it has a 'Beatrix Potter' corner (I love Beatrix Potter)

Toying with the idea of displaying my collection of vintage aprons in this room too

 Another acquisition from the shop, i love this enamel sign it will look perfect 
on the wall in here
 As will this ice cream sign
 Not forgetting my 'Tina Teaspoon' creation made at the Julie Arkell workshop, Ruthin last year

 Next is the corridor, still a bit of a mess and painting to be done but looking forward to putting up art work in here, i love the brightness and cleared of all the mess it's a good sized thoroughfare for the rooms.

That's it for now, i'm off to put doors on cabinets and maybe some painting.

There are still places on the three workshops at the end of this year:
