To be honest: I hadn’t really planned on this project. Last evening I simply had this sudden urge to craft, which felt like a blessing after having lost my motivation for quite a while, probably because of the never ending wait for new tack making supplies.
In just under two hours I whipped together this little shabby chic wash stall and tack room scene. It’s not really that big of a setup, but it makes a perfect handy show entry and pretty photo backdrop.
As always I used one of my trusty wooden trays as a base and used balsa wood to build the two walls. I always opt for two walls instead of three for the ease of photographing and having the light source most commonly coming from the right.
To decorate the walls I used a sand and paint mixture (which I like A LOT) and made the little bricks out of egg carton. The cobblestone flooring is made of pieces of egg carton as well.
The wash stall is not too big, because I really wanted to leave some space for a little cabinet and saddle racks. I plan on making those next, but I couldn’t help myself not giving you a quick little update before!
My lovely new Hunter mare Grace’s Secret (wearing Pemberley’s halter) was happy to model the new wash stall. Isn’t she adorable? 🥰
