Yesterday afternoon I had several errands to do in the vicinity of the hobby shop, so dropped in for more spray paint (I swear it's like embroidery floss: no matter how many colours you have you never seem to have the right shade(s) for your latest project).
I'd pretty much decided on copper and black for the chair colours, but found myself drawn to a metallic green, with the idea of turning the black mesh into a vertical garden and using the green as a spot colour. So a bag of greenery was added to my basket.
On the way home the green kept niggling at my mind. Until I realised why: The Switchboard Cafe was mainly green, And I just happened to have a plan to recreate it (or something close) using the shopfront I bought from The Doll House when I was in Melbourne in August last year...
If I could pull this off I could finish off many Fridays at once!
So, here's the (new) rough plan:
Cafe chairs and small tables/benches/something along the laneway in the front.
I can still use the pallets on the wider wall inside: I'm thinking I can 'hang' the table off them and perhaps have shelves above. Unfortunately, this means that the 'coffee' table will have to wait for another project.
The high stools can go along the window inside, with a narrow shelf to put the coffees onand the narrow end of the space can have something comfy to lounge on.
I think I'll call it 'Hideout'.
