Today, in the mail, the final piece that I had been waiting for came. The dining room table and four chairs. I spent last night gluing all of the pieces into place with the exception of the dining room. So, upon its delivery, the pieces were assembled and then glued into place as well.
This, officially, means that I have finished the interior of the house. I have to fix a few shingles on the roof and replace the “tar paper” on the roof and I am hoping to still purchase shutters and do some decorating on the front outside of the house. Been looking into how to craft a porch chandelier, something like the one that hangs in front of my real house.
Also, the plan is to take a bazillions of photos and I’d like to do it outside for really good lighting and access to all angles. I want to take pictures through windows and use a mirror to a good view to all of the rooms. So wouldn’t you know it that the day it is ready for photos of the interior, the heavens opened up with a thunderstorm!
So, rather than spoiling the surprise – you can see how dark it is in the house (the real one and the miniature one!), which doesn’t lend to good photos. Instead, I am going to work on the porch, primarily working on the porch light.
Come back soon for a myriad of photos… and send good thoughts about the weather!
