Spent a bit of time today on the nursery chimney and fireplace. Made the walls for the chimney first.

And attached them to the outside wall with the fireplace wires passing through the two walls.

Then I placed the walls and the fireplace into the room and set a model ship on the mantel piece.

Reminded me of Neil Finn’s song lyrics:

“Well there’s a small boat made of china
It’s going nowhere on the mantelpiece…”

Here’s this side of the house for now.

I took the wallpaper I was planning on using and modified the size to print it.

Nursery main wallpaper with swans

The wall part looked right, so I glued it on, but the swan trim is too big (for that matter, so is the wallpaper I leaned up against the hallway wall…it’s hard to predict the way it’ll turn out when you’re using photoshop). I’ll have to try again tomorrow.

Slow going, I know, but for now….good night.
