Moonbeam, this looks amazing. LOVE the "round things" through the door!

Amazing!

I always get an extra surge of nostalgia when I see a Newberry. That glimpse of the interior is very effective. Does the tapestry run round the three walls? Can you post a photo from the front with the door open?

Very nice.  Good choice on gradual weathering too.  Then you can decide to stop before you go too-too far.  Weathering is a lot different for an indoor box too.  For an outdoor box, *weather* will do a lot of weathering *for* you.  Fading, gunk from leaves, spatter up from the ground after rain...  Any weathering you do will change over time, and while you may be happy with your weathering, you periodically need to repaint to protect the wood, so you have to re-weather.  With an indoor box, you've got to get the weathering right yourself, but at least once you're happy with it, you don't have to worry about it changing on its own. 

Oh, and I did try to rotate the images.  It doesn't look like my control panel has any way to do that, but maybe someone more skilled like warmcanofcoke knows how.

Ironically I wish I could keep my outdoor box pristine!

Hi everyone and thanks for the nice replies, (and apologies for my late reply, a holiday and mad busy work to blame!).
Building it's been a real labour of love and very satisfying to do!
Fivefingeredstyre it's nice having it in the kitchen but I wouldn't mind a met box down the end of the garden......I can see a future project!

Hi Francis I've taken a couple of pictures looking through the front. The tapestry I think is the largest size redbubble do and it starts and covers the whole of the left hand wall and the back wall and just short of half of the right hand wall, (which I've still got to paint black, along with the roof).C3385B74-47F2-40D7-9BB7-4768290B9EC2.jpegE5D6BC21-3026-453B-A14C-A1F4B6987CEA.jpegA07603A0-DD02-4675-BC8D-2B1CFB99D34C.jpeg

Thanks so much for these. It looks amazing. I'm quite jealous 😁
