Number 1) I had strep throat thanks to the lovely folks at work who spread it around. So I was exhausted and really not in the shape to do anything but sleep.
Number 2) The photos did not want to upload from my phone. I love when the phone says it has an update and you think it'll make your life easier but it just messes up everything you thought you understood about your phone.
Number 3) Tali'Zorah Vas Normandy. Yep, my kitten was definitely an impediment to accomplishing work on the dollhouse. She was fascinated by the paintbrush and got paint on her paws which freaked me out. I returned the favor by freaking her out and washing her paws with soap and water. She hasn't died yet so I think she'll be okay.
But the goal for this weekend was to start painting and as you can tell from Tali's trouble paint I did.
I started with building the front steps because they had to be wood glued on and I din't want to glue paint to paint. So first step, attach the treads to the steps. Like so:
|Notice my high tech carpentry tools here.|
|More very high tech professional grade tools.|
|Nicely specific aren't they?|
|Painted the sides and front of the bottom step|
|You can see the paint a lot easier on this one.|
|See, I don't want the steps to blend into the foundation as much.|
|A little dark but still you can see what I did since it contrasts with the raw wood.|
Oh no. I got out my brand new paint brush and my special paint that I bought that has primer and paint in one BEHR paint that the Home Depot lady mixed up special for me. She was really great, helped me figure out my colors and decide on a nice pale pale blue for the main body of the house. As you see here:
|The color doesn't pop as much from behind the plexiglas.|
But here's another picture of the side of the house. I'm very pleased with this color.
|Isn't it pretty?|
Yeah I've got a lot of work. But this is the fun part. No more case building. We're dollhousing again!
