Choo Choo!!

A while back I purchased a set of full scale wallpaper that was 40% off. Trains, tracks and stripes. When I bought it, I didn't know what my plans were, but for the price I did not want to pass it up. If I couldn't use it, I could share with my friends.
The top border had 3 rows of trains going across. I thought it was too big for full scale, let alone half.

I cut the trains into individual rows to make the twin boys border.

I didn't get a picture of the stripes before I started cutting. The whole page was stripes alternating with the track. I took a section to use as the bottom half of the room with the train track as a border.

I took the part of the railing out to make into a half wall. This way I won't have to make the railing, or buy more materials.

False wall like I did in the Glenwood's living room. For the half scale I used balsa instead of foam board. To finish off the top I wrapped some wood with the track.

Like Keli , I did not like how shallow my sink is. I put some of the fake water in the bottom...
and filled it with tiny nail beads Dakoda and I found at the dollar store.

I cut a dish in half to make give it depth.

It looks OK - but I like Keli's better. I am going to start remove what I have and use a colored plate. Instead of using the thick water, I will use the liquid.
Trial and error. I know it can look better.
