I've been hard at work in the library for the past couple of days and now have the floor down and polished, the walls panelled and painted, the bookcases made and filled ... so I thought I'd better let you see what I've been doing.
I felt the walls looked a bit dark (they're much darker in real life than they appear in this photograph) so I dry brushed them with a bit of ivory paint to make the room look just a little bit worn around the edges. They need more work yet. This room will also have a wing chair, footstool and a large desk eventually - when I've made them.
I've done a little more to the bed so it now has a top sheet and silk coverlet. Still more to do here too but my main priority at the moment is really to get the decorating on this third floor finished so I can get on with the build as, because the house is 1/24th scale and the rooms are so tiny, I'm decorating as I work my way up. The majority of the furniture and the accessories can wait really. It's just that sometimes I get a little carried away and eager to see it all finished.
