Apothecary Unit....

Just tried out the units I painted earlier in the Apothecary. The Flash has made them look lighter then they actually are. Think I might give them another coat of paint before I distress them. Want them to be more the colour of the Barrels, that I did before.
My Friend Nikki had a brilliant idea about building a shelving unit coming off, of these units, to place jars etc on. But the ceiling height downstairs, is quite low compared to upstairs. So I've lined the units up, in the middle of the floor, under the central Beam, to see how much room I have to play with. I may end up putting little hooks in the beam and hanging stuff from there over the unit.. Still can't decide! Decisions, Decisions....
In the Harry Potter books, this is what it says about the Apothecary...
The Apothecary is a fascinating shop crammed with all sorts of interesting things. There are barrels of slimy stuff lined up on the floor and jars of all sorts of powders, herbs, and the like along the walls. Bundles of feathers, fangs, and claws hang from the ceiling. The whole place smells very bad, a mixture of bad eggs and rotten cabbage.
