Mum of 2. Let go of all my interests for a few years and found I was missing something - thus my turn to miniatures! Haved loved anything 'little' since I was very young :) But then I bought a sewing machine.....
Painting.. it's NOT supposed to be perfect... it's a pub after all.. but omg I was daunted with all of this and really not sure how it will all go together.. or IF it will.. the door is a damn mess after all my blood, sweat & tears... but fear not.. I have found a cure for it
Below shows how I had to fit the attic window.. a cutout thanks to my newest dremel baby!! SOOO glad I bought it! Makes life SO much easier!!!
And voila!! It fits!!! (YES that is a backwards clock.. not a reverse photo!) Painting still in progress in this part..
Another shot.. oh that poor cleaner.. she really needs a rest! Or a pay rise?
I was using this stuff to clean my windows.. and found it strips the paint.. at first it was an "OMG what have I done?" reaction.. till I remembered.. it's just a pub.. it's going to be a bit worn.. this 'magic eraser' is going to be useful forevermore!!
Inside.. I know.. still not finished.. still feeling chuffed that I got that attic window in!! WOOHOO!! There was no way it was going to fit without my new baby (thanks to Kez who had one and showed me when I visitied earlier this year!)
Oh please excuse the mess.. that cleaner.. perhaps she doesn't deserve a pay rise after all...
Oh wait.. there she is!! On her knees.. AS she should be!! :P
Oh there's that beloved new tool of mine too! <3 it!!
A window.. which has copped the wrath of the magic eraser.. still I like the 'worn' effect.. I guess in the morning I'll be doing some touchups! It IS a tad rough - but it's not a high profit hotel - cheap labor!!
(good excuse for imperfection perhaps?)
Making LOTS of little paper boxes... LOTS of cleaning to go.. but having a lot of fun! This is turning out somewhat as expected.. stay tuned..
