The Potion Cabinet and more!












Heres a close up of the Potion Cabinet. This has sat in my drawers for years and i found it and thought it would be good in the room. I just sanded down the wood so it looked abit more aged, and then put in lots of different potion ingredient bottles. I then made holes and put in some of Nikki's hanging items, dragon skins, teeth and herbs etc which look quite cool!
The bench is just balsa painted black, and railings painted gold glued together , a nice cheap potion table!
This morning Violetta is having a mix herself to see what spells she can put together for her first lesson
Have a great Sunday and yep I think it will be Dumbeldores office next. thinking of a design for the bookcases today.
