After a bit of lifting, heaving and tweaking, I've now replaced the iron bed in the middle of the shop floor, with no less than three items of furniture! As you come in through the double doors, you are greeted by a country style painted dressing table.
Its perfect for displaying all the feminine bedroom accessories that are essential for good grooming!
Behind it is a large shelf unit, which I have trimmed with lengths of old hand crochet lace and broidery anglaise.
I covered the back of it in lengths of vintage rosebud wallpaper - I had intended to hang a picture on the back too, but ran out of time (and picture hooks!) yesterday.
A wooden slatted bench (painted a lovely shade of green) stands behind it and is perfect to arrange my collection of handmade cushions on.
I also added a corner shelf stand to the shop too, which you can probably just see to the left of the shelved alcove below. Despite me adding all of these new pieces, it has actually freed up more floor space than before, so its worked well.
