Hat Stands.....

Since the project includes a rather large hat shop, I realized I'd better get cracking on some hats stands. I wanted something a little unusual so I raided the house trim stash and just let loose.


These are a sampling ( I made quite a few!). The largest can easily stand on the floor. Next I'm looking through my bead stash. I think some metal and bead stands might be intereseting.....

I also found a hatbox printie and a pattern online and am making a bunch of those to scatter about. I have a few larger sized ones I found in a box which will have to be covered but will be quite useful, too.

I think I have sufficient furniture to adapt one way or the other. Some will stay wood stained; some will be painted. All will be made to look well-used. This shop has, after all, been around for a vey long time. :-)

Next big thing on the list is hats! I am out of town at a family gathering this weekend so that will have to wait until next week.

Later...
