Problem with catching up with other blogs is the ideas that start popping in your head.
I have seen all these great deals on ebay that I missing out on.
After browsing half scale miniatures and about ready to give up - I saw this:
Listed as a buy it now for $29. I figured if it was still available in the morning, then I would get it.
So I set my alarm for 5 am. Amazingly, it was still available. Waiting impatiently for it to arrive.
(plus a shabby chic balloon shade I found that I used to have years ago)
After pacing in my mini room looking for a place to put a new kit, I decided to stain the half scale stair componets.
tinkered around some
Played with the loft space in attic room.
I didn't have any paper on hand that would work as a boys room. I figured why not give the walls a texture appearance? Added water to drywall mud. What a mess. I will spare you the picture.
After cleaning all the mud off, I decided to paint. That looked like crap too, but my friends told me otherwise so I kept going. What else did I have to do? (besides laundry, vacuum, dishes...)
I put the paint on a little thicker with a paint brush, then dapped over it to remove the brush strokes. It gave the walls a textured look.
Painted the ceiling of the loft floor.
Not too bad, huh?
Painted dormer windows
I will patch the cracks
I actually thought ahead for once. Using a cheap MDF stair for spacers, I marked where the spindles will go.
Then drilled the holes. Wish I would have thought about that with the other stair cases.
