Hmmm... how to make it adult sized.......?

Well. Future-child (as he/she will henceforth be known as) will clearly be needing one of these. Just wondering how much extra anchoring you'd need to make it adult sized? Hmmm

And if you're wondering how one might go about fashioning oneself one of these bad boys, the folk over at Apartment Therapy have kindly posted some instructions here



Hooks into the ceiling so you can put it up and down as you please! Noice!

No reason needed - Just look at it!!!


Woops!

Been a while, wouldn't you say? I'd like to be able to say I've been frantically busy, but the truth is I've been ridiculously lazy :)

I guess chooks are as good a place as any to pick it up from! I never did get around to reveal the chickens that were coming....
Meet the residents of my chicken coop:




Made out of vintage fabric (but of course), these little guys will steadfastly hold your doors back with bravery and determination not seen since the great chicken wars. OK, so they just sit there. They're useful little doorstops though!

Filled with rice, these guys are still kind of the prototypes... planning on refining the design and having zips in them so they can be sold "flat-packed" (posting something full of rice aint cheap!)

Door mice and some snakes to keep out draughts are on the cards also... stay tuned!
