But I did get it figured out. I had to make it a bit deeper than the mattress box to accommodate the roof stop column. So I put a few little shelves in it for books and an alarm clock. I'm debating putting sconces in it but I don't think I will. I then managed to adjust the mattress box so it would work off a pivot point that wasn't the edge of the frame.
The upper left corner will brush the ceiling but I think it'll still look pretty good. I stained it the same cherry I've been using on the trim and doors.
You can sort of see the shelves I put in. They're pretty narrow in depth but they're more for detail than function. I'm not sure if I'll panel the wall with some thin boards below the window to give the illusion of a headboard or not.
I need to build a short cupboard to go at the foot of the bed for storage and I'm thinking of using a House of Miniatures kit to make a small bureau that'll serve as a bedside table for a lamp.
I filled in all the little cracks and goofs on the cabinets with wood putty and sanded them down. I need to figure out their placement and then start work on the backsplash. I think I've got the spots for all the lights figured out so I'll probably take the house apart pretty soon to cut the routs for the wiring. Then I can texture the walls and paint.
It's not super noticeable but I also got the bathroom door hung. It's not permanent, it would just get bumped and messed with every time I took the bathroom out if I'd stuck it on there permanently.
I can also remove it to paint the nail heads bronze if I feel like it.
Not a bad weekend's work but it definitely wasn't my most productive. Hopefully next weekend will be better.
The only other interesting thing was a picture I came across on Pinterest and thought immediately that it would be a cool dollhouse. It's the Race Rock Island Lighthouse in New York.
I've never seen one built this way before, with the lighthouse tower being so integral to the house.
I think if I found the right dollhouse kit to bash that it might be a fun project in the future.
