Oh, and the stairs are looking spiffy. So let's start with them.
I really enjoy how they look. It took a bit for me to get the lower part fixed up. And nothing is glued in place just yet. But this is how they should look once everything is done.
|You know, with flooring and no paint in the foreground.|
Here's another shot, just for fun.
|I really wanted a gradual curve but angles seemed a bit more modern.|
And for the bathroom under the stairs, part of the light fixture. I took little glass bottles and some jewelry findings and to diffuse the light somewhat put citrine and peridot chips inside. I don't think we'll get green and yellow light but it'll look real pretty.
|I made two, one for each side of the mirror above the sink.|
|I love sticky tacky glue by the way. It makes anything stick, even metal to glass.|
And I also got cracking on the upper outdoor lights. More drawer pulls were used so that the upstairs and downstairs lights would match.
|I made three but the third one did not want to stay sitting up like these two.|
But I did get started on the front wall of the 'cube' part of the house.
|Yeah, that looks like a whole mess of boards and plexiglass and blurry to boot.|
|I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out actually.|
To be honest, if I'd had another door like the one on the front of the house I'd have used it but I didn't have one handy and making one seemed like a good idea.
|This is the inside panel. I covered the wood in a semi glittery scrapbook paper in offwhite.|
Here's the outside.
|Hmm... a little blurrier than I usually like.|
This is better.
|I'm pretty excited about it.|
|Again, please excuse the dust.|
I'm really wavering on the trim by the way. I was originally thinking off white. But now I'm wondering if natural wood tones finished with clear polyurethane would be a more modern look? Opinions anyone?
