The Bohemian bathroom, one step further.....

Have managed to get the mountboard false walls into the bathroom. Amazingly I think I am planning and doing things in the right order! Have used a stencil I brought from Black country miniatures and the walls have been painted in Farrow and Balls Setting plaster. I want it all to have a faded,distressed look so there will be more work to do on the walls.

Long time no see!!!!

It has been forever since I've posted on here. I'm trying to rekindle my love of creating a miniature project. It seems since I started making dolls for a living, my passion for making miniature scenes in general has dwindled. I still collect amazing peices from artisans all over the world, but the actual building and making of a whole scene just doesn't seem to happen. Time always an issue, but also after doing dolls all day I can't gather enthusiasm to do any other miniatures. So last weekend at York dollshouse fair, I brought myself a conservatory from Mark The Dollshouse Builder. I have a plan in my head for what I want to do and the building was of the right size and had the glass roof I was eager to have. This building is not going to resemble in any way the conservatory it is intended to be. My plan in to make a bohemian style scruffy bathroom and terrace outside. I'm going to use this space to log the bathrooms progress. Here is a picture of what the building is supposed to look like and also a picture of the sides assembled. I am not using the kits french doors as I want to make my own, so the first alteration to the kit was removing the bottom peice of the french doors frame. I have a planned trip to Hobbycraft tomorrow to get the supplies I need to start the transformation. see you soon xx
