I changed the kit's double door to a single door with a transom window. I built the new frame from 3/8" x 3/16" and 3/8" x 1/8"
strip wood, just as I had done for the Brownstone door, adding 1/16" by 1/16" strip wood to keep the drafts out. The door color
is Plantation Pine by Americana, and the frame is Warm White, also by Americana. I used Opryland door hardware and made the
kickplates from heavy paper. I painted the paper antique bronze and added nail detailing.
The two large counters are from miniatures.com. I stained them Minwax English Chestnut and used a finishing technique to disguise
any large grain or glue spots. The shorter counter by the door was made from a vintage kit found on eBay. I was able to cut the
pieces into a custom angled counter that allowed better flow into the shop from the front door.
The cash register was a gift from Barbara, though I did touch up the paint around the keys (a detail not seen after the effort).
The ledger is from Looking Glass Miniatures.
I made the reversible open/closed sign and painted a Chrysnbon coat rack. The umbrella is by FranMadeMinis. I used Brodnax Willow
wallpaper and stained the interior trims. I made the light switch from polystyrene sheet and rod. Talk about fiddly and small.
Those buttons are 1/16" in diameter.
