But that kinda lit a fire under my butt. No more futzing (is that a real word?) around. Time to actually figure out how to do some things and then get them done. So... I worked. And I made some mistakes but thankfully they're fixable. And my husband gave me the coupon that came in the mail for twenty percent off my order at Miniatures.com so I got to order a few things I'd been wanting.
That really helped. Shopping for miniatures always helps somehow.
But I'm pleased to say that I got the kitchen mostly finished and the second floor started. (I actually nearly said completely finished on the kitchen before I remembered I haven't put in the baseboards yet. Ooops.)
But the floor is in! Yay floor! See?
|No grout just yet but you get the idea right?|
I had to get the windows trimmed and framed in on the inside. I love the natural wood look.
Here's a shot of the backdoor and the tiles grouted. They still look a little streaky but I want to wait until its completely dry before I wipe them down anymore.
They're actually real glass tiles that you'd use for a floor in a bathroom or the backsplash in your kitchen. I love how they look. They're just about an inch square so they're kinda like real mini tiles.
|You can also see where I need to touch up the edge of the door.|
|See? This was a whole long process|
|I love the colors though|
|See? Not graceful.|
|Not actual size.|
|And you can also see the other light fixtures. I like the vintage look.|
|Yeah, its pretty good.|
I also got the bathroom wired and the walls papered. Can you believe I've got everything I need for the bathroom except a toilet. Yep. Nothing like forgetting the obvious. I'm a genius like that.
So here's a progress shot of the bedroom.
|We'll pretend there's extra insulation in the floor so the bedroom doesn't get cold over the garage.|
|My extremely technical method of holding the walls on until the glue dries.|
|The green is not really that bright. It's the flash on my camera phone. When I get the trim in we'll try it again.|
|It looks bigger than it is.|
|I added a transom window near the ceiling to let in some natural light from the front windows.|
|The green matches the green of the bedroom. I want a good neutral green and brown.|
The faucet for the kitchen sink, which is finally dry and safe to untape.
|I love this faucet. I want it for my real house.|
|Ignore the junk outside the house please.|
|I think it'll go next to the couch.|
See you soon!
