I went to the Philadelphia Miniaturia show this weekend and it reminded me, among other things, that I had this beautiful house to work on and that I had been neglecting it for much too long. Furthermore, I picked up some amazing floor trim at the show, which would work perfectly in the drawing room and would solve my trim-making issues.

So then it was back to cutting floor boards, staining them, and gluing them in place.

When I got to the back of the room, I realized I still hadn’t glued the walls in. Which also meant gluing in the little bridge-like rails the pocket doors would slide on..

Gluing the side wall in place…

And then the back wall. There’s a little gap on the right back corner. That will get filled with wood filler soon.

I continued the floor trim around the back of the room.

But then it was time to go. So here’s the drawing room so far.

I had forgotten how calming it could be, working  in this miniature world. Soothes the soul.

Be well. Good night.
