I am in the process of converting a deluxe chicken coop (we called it
the Martha Stewart Poulet Coupe') into a small showroom for my work. I
need ideas. So far, I disinfected and de-bugged and put cream-colored
sheet vinyl on parts of 2 walls as background for hanging pieces or
shelving. I put fresh fluffy shavings thickly on the floor and in nest
boxes. I'll display some pots in the nest boxes. I have a roost which
supports a 'counter' area for guest book and order forms, calculator,
etc.. I'll need display areas for objects that do not hang on the
walls....such as luminaries, bowls, small chimneys, jars, etc. I know I
can attach shelved to one wall. I can also drape a table. Ho hum. I
don't want to spend too much money, but I could put in an old hutch
???? Any other ideas?
