what a transformation! I love, love, LOVE the idea of the dictionary wall - in fact you just gave me the inspiration I needed for what to do with my laundry cupboard doors that had me stumped! Thankyou!  Grin

Very jealous of your artwork.  Wink

Are you going to cut a small access door for them, or just leave the larger door open until it's time for them to roost at night?

I just leave the door open during the day and close it again after they put themselves to bed at night. This way the coop is fox-proof and my babies are safe overnight.

would make it so one of the roof sides lift up for easy cleaning tho!!

The coop is just shy of 6ft tall, and I am 5"6 so technically I could stand up in it if I wanted to - but I just stand at the door and use a broom to sweep the pea straw bedding out (goes on the veggie garden)... or get one of my slaves kids to do it for me!!



Thankyou for all the feedback!!  Grin

I love it!

Funnily enough I have 6m of the grey and white ikea fabric ready to be made into roman shades for my lounge room! And I'm getting some more fabric from ikea next time I'm in the city to upholster my old lounge suite I thrifted.  Grin

you're right, its all in the details. That takes something run-of-the-mill into something special - a feature aswell.

It looks great!  Cheesy

BRB, painting a mustache on a mirror  Cheesy

I have a mirror with a similar frame to this, I've been meaning to spray paint it red. . or maybe yellow. . . or turquoise. You see my dilemma.  Roll Eyes

I really like it! I love checked walls/floors/ceilings even. With the blue its not so in-your-face either.   Cheesy

This was a pretty big challenge for someone who had NO experience with carpentry, almost NO decent tools and NO money for decent materials - but sometimes I just get this idea into my head where I think "I can do that, yeah - no problem" and just go for it.



Materials;

wardrobe as the frame on the base (free - left in the shed when we moved in)
planks from wooden pallets for the floorboards (free from freight company, I just rang and asked)
fence pailings and timber for cladding and frame (leftovers from a previous project)
sheet metal for roof ($5 a sheet from a scrap yard)
I bought the hinges


Plus I used a hand saw (yes, all those cuts were made by me, by hand. I really need an electric saw), hammer, nails, screws and a drill

and of course some happy chickens, we got them at 10 days old and they are now 5 months. Pekin Bantams for those that like their chooks  Grin




he smuggled that one inside when I wasnt looking  Roll Eyes

Comments are welcome and thoroughly enjoyed!!  Grin

I especially like the turquoise - you've tied everything in together really well.

I so understand how you just want to keep looking at it. I've recently painted three rooms of our place and after each one I find myself making excuses to go in there just to stand back at look at the job well done  Grin
