Painting the window trim is such a tedious task so I do them one at a time. Once the interior frame was in, I attempted to put the acrylic in. Trying to squeeze the window in the opening reminded me of trying to put my shorts on after a long winter. Wasn't gonna happen.
After a little cosmetic surgery, the window set within the opening. But I could see the unpainted window jamb. Painted the jamb white and slipped in the acrylic.
One down, a million to go.
Remember Fingerhut catalogs? Before you toss them in the trash flip through them. I found a lot of pictures that would work great for miniature artwork. Just add frames.
Seems like my Glenwood has been stuck in the corner for a while now. We added stilts to the table, but we never finished the job to keep them stable.
Today I boxed in the legs to keep them from splitting like Bambi on ice.
Yes - I know. It's ugly. Guess what? I don't care. I can add another shelf, or make that a bin for treasures. Around the front and sides I plan to add material (like a bed skirt idea) to hide the gaudiness. I would share an overall back view of the house, but it really disturbs me that the basement stairs do not line up with the other stair cases.
Funny - look at the crap job - yet the staircase is what bothers me!
We (I) decided to get carpet in the house. The hardwood is pretty, but I can't take the cold, the tumbleweeds of cat hair and the sound of the dogs nails on them anymore. The hardwood is actually a laminate floating floor. I need to pull that up before the carpet is laid. I am going to attempt to put laminate in my mini room.
Between the living room and kitchen we will eventually have a bar/counter extending half way across. Feeling somewhat handy, I figured I could start the divider now and we can add the rest later.
So I made a half wall myself. The floor in the kitchen was just replaced. I think it turned out pretty well - and it is peel and stick tiles. I didn't lay the floor where the counter and cupboards will be.
View from living room. It is even level!
I wonder what BF will think of it when he gets home from work!
