It’s been a long time coming! Some ideas born in the head have a few months gestation period! Finally, this came out!
It all started with our volunteering youth. They were fund raising for a mission trip abroad and were looking for opportunities to serve within the local community – for donations. I was starting to think of freshening up the playhouse. The opportunities presented each other, shook hands, and got on with it. They were happy painting, I was happy they were painting.
Unfortunately, summer came, and we left for the summer. Once we got back, I was six months (going on fifteen) pregnant by then. I needed the master helper. My mum!
In its entirety, I think mum and I have different tastes (she’s way more eccentric), but on most things, I trust her eye. So one morning, she agreed to help while I was busy at work. I left her the choice of paints, and gave her complete creative freedom. I couldn’t trust anyone else like that. The colour choice is perfect! Not too hospital, not too girlie, not too boyish – just perfect for a Pet Clinic.
First layer done. Now for the furnishings and accessories.
We didn’t do much painting on the outside, but the white paws really freshened it up!
Veterinary clinic downstairs and adoption centre upstairs.
Record keeping (aka Big book of boo-boos) is a must.
Pets looking for their humans.
Ikea dog bum hangers fit perfectly with our theme.
Now, hours of bureaucracy keep out Vet intern occupied.
Make it and love it!
