Here's where the WAMH stands as of this afternoon:
Kitchen: Nothing really changed here, except I added the door handle to the back door. Still have to make brick lining for fireplace.
Dining Room: I added the 1648 painting of a sailboat, and you can see that I have the chandelier all ready to hang :) I finished the right hand wall, which you can't see very clearly in this photo. None of the walls has been glued into place yet.
Hallway: The left hand wall is mostly done -- high panelling with the wall painted white above it. I made the floor while I was invigilating a student's exam -- it took every bit of 2 hours to complete! I'm thrilled with how it worked out, though, and can recommend Traditional Elegance Tiles's Marlike floor tiles to everyone.
Parlour: This will be the parlour's fireplace. This room will be half panelled and have scenic wallpaper above the panelling. This is one of two lovely fireplaces I bought from The Miniature Fireplace Company (part of Dovetails). The other, the Classic, is for the bedroom. Highly recommended.
Fireplace for Blue and White Room: I adore this piece! Look at the detail on it. It's truly exquisite and came with the hearth (I bought it through an eBay auction which included the hearth). It's by Plastercraft Interiors in the UK -- their eBay shop is periodmouldings. I recommend them highly, too.
So much to do! I've cut the wall that will go between the Hall and the Parlour -- now I have to finish it on each side. I have to cut out the window holes in the back wall, and make the window for the Hall. Then everything can be glued in place and the ceiling put on!
I think it works with the sofa - Several years ago I made a dark blue wing chair with a William Morris print on it. The fabric came from a 100% silk men's tie made by the Metropolitan ...
