Sometimes you spend hours working on something that looks like very little progress in the end. Tonight was one of those times…
Since I was dealing with uneven floor issues (left over from earlier leveling problems), it took quite a while to glue in the north wall of the nursery correctly…and then to wallpaper it in such a way as to cover whatever issues were left.
I’m not a hundred percent sure I like my wallpaper seam on the back wall, but I’m too tired to try again…
I also started cutting out tiny floor boards that will eventually make up the pattern I found in this photo.
But for now, here is the east side of the house.
And here is the nursery table…complete with Aesop’s Fables, a sheet of tiny paper dolls, and a set of eyeglasses for the governess.
You have no idea how much I love reading these posts. Your tiny problems are the same ones I had doing this full sized, only you probably have more eye strain! Keep fighting the good fight, and here’s a tip from Rob’s Rules for Home Owners… If you hadn’t pointed out the seam, I would never have noticed! Rob
Perhaps more eye strain but a lot less muscle strain! 😉
So funny that the problems are the same….I will pretend the wallpaper is perfect and we’ll go from there…
Wow! Your plans are so well thought out! I can’t imagine making the walls with the posts and joints it must be so tedious, but it seems to let you build room by room which I think really helps in such a large project. The details look really great, I can’t wait to see more.
It’s funny…I can’t imagine making solid wooden walls. Much more difficult, I’d say….and where do you hide the wires?
Thank you! I’m having fun making this.
Your house is coming along so beautifully, and your photos look so professional. I cannot imagine how much time this project is taking you (I haven’t made a house for that reason) but wow!
Thanks! Probably best for me not to add up the hours spent…I enjoy them and that’s all. 🙂
