I started working on it last week and you've all seen the walls with the little transom window I made to let some light in.
|I'm still pleased with this wallpaper at least.|
|It reminds me of mother of pearl|
But then I had to make a little pony wall with the glass for the shower on top of it, and the shower enclosure itself.
I used some fixtures I bought from Elf Miniatures for the showerhead and drain. I liked the idea of a double headed shower.
|Can you see the control lever?|
|I used another brad for the shower door handle.|
|I like the echoes of white from the grout to the porcelain.|
The tricky part was getting the crown molding up. It never wants to stay glued right away.
|But it still looks pretty good|
Speaking of bathrooms, here are a couple of shots of the finished half bath on the first floor. The sink and washstand are both from Elf Miniatures. I made the towels out of flannel and the mirror is from Ebay.
|I like how it turned out.|
|It turned out pretty well. Small but nice.|
|A shot through the front windows to show off the cork floor, I need to dust I think.|
|My sophisticated clamping technique.|
|My very important glue bottle there.|
|With all the trim and everything!|
But the big thing for this room that I wanted was the bed. I've seen some gorgeous modern beds out there with benches and night stands build right in. So I wanted to do something along those lines.
I got a mattress from HBS Supply and used that to give me the approximate measurements.
Here's the start of the process, basswood and plywood.
|Lots of glue!|
|Doesn't look like much does it?|
|I'll take the tape off when its done drying.|
|The mattress will sit in the middle where there's no trim|
I also was working on the ceilings for the rooms and got the plaster paper and lights on, but since I haven't done the curtains yet I don't want to glue it into place.
Here's a shot of what it'll look like completed. (Hopefully!)
|I love a chandelier in the bathroom. Very posh.|
|Tali isn't sure she approves.|
|Tali, the house is not for you.|
I also started to work on the siding for the curved portion of the house but its being held in place by several large heavy books so the siding doesn't curl up with the moisture of the glue and then stain. With some luck I'll have pictures in a few days.
That's all for now folks. See you soon I hope.
