Beach hut wardrobe

Materials: Gorm basic unit, plus extra wood for roof structure, and tongue and groove

Description: After building the very basic shape (ie four uprights and 4 shelves, we constructed a ‘roof’ and framework for door. The whole thing was then clad in tongue and groove, and a door was constructed, again from tongue ad groove with a wooden ‘Z’ on the inside of the door to hold the wooden planks together. Long hinges were used for an authentic feel. The roof and door were then painted, first in red, then blue and rubbed down to give a worn, distressed look. The rest of the ‘hut’ was painted in white eggshell.
