Sneak peek at my new flower shop

I was so inspired by the brunbellebarbie.com Glitter Girls sweet shop transformation that I purchased a used sweet shop on eBay to refurbish myself. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve spent a couple hours a day cleaning, painting, and sealing virtually every surface. I was able to pull off the plastic wallpaper. One side was just on with double sided tape; the other side was glued on and left residue behind. So I am planning to wallpaper again when I can get to a store with a nice selection of scrapbook paper. Once the wallpaper is up, I also plan to add lace curtains.

I removed the flamingo bust and plan to replace it with a picture or sign. Still trying to decide what to do with the lollipop display.

I’ve decided to make this a flower shop instead of a sweet shop, since I have so many flowers. So I found some little red shot plastic glasses that I painted pink to use as flower buckets. For the shop sign, I used a wood plaque, random wood pieces, some scrapbook paper, and foam letters that I painted gold. I hope to finish the project in the next week. Stay tuned for more pictures.
