I’ve always always alwaysss wanted to buy an old church and renovate it in real life, so when I saw Scarlet Creative’s new build for Shiny Shabby I was pretty ecstatic.
Its called the “Neva Chapel” , includes 2 sizes, 107LI for small and 127LI for large. (21x22x17 footprint). I used the smaller scale for my photos and it seemed to be perfect and to scale for me.
Soooo from the outside its pretty churchified, one of those old type chapels, made of wood that I used to see in old Wild West movies. If you look up to the roof you can see the first clue its been converted, a lovely window gantry that would flood the interior with natural light.
Move inside and check out the stunning work on the windows, peeling paint on the frames and the odd loose wooden board on the walls all add to the atmosphere and charm. There is a narrow ladder leading up to what Id use as the bedroom – its been railed off with metal poles and guide poles – nice touch. All this for just $249L – deal !
I’ve just been over to Shiny Shabby (7.10am UK time) and its jam-packed and super hard to move around, might be worth leaving it a couple of days before you visit. I doggedly stood my ground to get a few items .
