  1. Library lighting

    From the album Watson Mill

    To install the Ray Storey floor lamp, I made one of my usual faux wall outlets from copper card stock.  I finished the wire with a false plug, added a receptacle cut from stickers from HBS, and ran the wire up the outside. The ceiling lamps on the first floor are new old stock ceiling light kits by Illinois Hobbycraft.  I spray painted the metal rings Krylon Antique Bronze.  They are wired with LEDs from Evan Designs. Since I put the wallpaper in prior to installing the ceiling board, I needed some small crown molding to finish the upper edges.  I stained this Minwax Driftwood to coordinate with the other finishes.

  12. Main floor window

    From the album Watson Mill

    I painted a Houseworks window for the main floor, using stained trim for the interior.  The corner joins are somewhat pronounced from the stain, but it won't matter with the window coverings and furniture placement.  I think I am ready to get the ceiling installed, then lighting, then back to the dumbwaiter and the ladder.

  13. Upper round window

    From the album Watson Mill

    Prepping the 2 1/4" Simplicity Window from Heritage Laser Works.  I painted it Americana White Birch in satin to coordinate with the other window and door.  The interior trim is stained Minwax Driftwood.
