Today, I finally got started.

I needed to repair the scullery floor, because some creature(s) had decided to eat the buckwheat flour I had used as grout. Some of the flour had also gotten on the tiles and had stuck to them.

Image

First, I used a fine steel wool to scrub the tiles.

Image

Then I swept on a new layer of buckwheat flour.

Image

And then gave the whole thing several coats of clear acrylic matte coating, so no bugs would go looking for a meal there again…

Image

Which gave a pretty natural-looking result:

Image

The ‘linoleum’ for the butler’s pantry also needed to be repaired…some of the paint had peeled away onto the cardboard that had been resting on top of it. So I repainted those bits and gave the whole thing a couple coats of acrylic as well.

Image

Then, I glued the walls in and glued the linoleum onto the butler’s pantry floor (weighted down with professional weights, naturally…)

Image

Back in the scullery, I made a chair rail to finish off the one I had started on the right-hand wall and created a windowsill (the wall on the left isn’t glued in yet).

Image

I was inspired by this dish drying rack…

Image

…and decided to build one for the scullery.

I started building a draining board to put under the drying rack, but I was getting tired. It’s propped up with modeling clay packages for now.

So here’s the scullery so far…

Good night.
