When a Room Lights Up

I've installed more lighting and what a feeling it is when the room lights up. Forgive the quality of pictures, I have this mental block when there isn't a flash on the camera, I can't take a picture!

So here are a couple of pictures of the livingroom and upstairs hallway lit.

Today (Jan.20,07) I installed lights in the baby's room and the master bedroom.

Well, I've been putting it off but I think it's time to put a railing around the opening of the staircase. Wish me luck!

Some Updated Pictures

I really wasn't sure how I wanted to do the curtains in the baby's room so I just used some lace and I may do blinds under them another time.

And here are a couple of other pictures as well. I still have to do the chandeliers yet. Just waiting on some supplies to arrive and I'm still waiting on the bedroom suite for the blue bedroom. Still!!
Ohh, and I'm just about finished a rug for the livingroom. Hope to be done tonight or tomorrow.

Next Came the Bedroom Drapes

Here's a couple of pictures of the bedroom drapes finished. They are still a bit damp, but I wanted to have them hang to dry. The furniture was ordered on Nov 27, so I expect it should be here sometime soon.

I received word yesterday (Jan 17.07) that the bedroom suite I had ordered would soon be on its way. In the meantime, I received this bedroom set which wasn't intended for this room but I thought I would try it out and I just may keep it in here.

Livingroom Drapes Done

It's raining and miserable outside but a perfect day for working on the house. I decided on the fabric for the drapes but I had no idea how it would look. The wallpaper is such a weird color and pattern that I was afraid I wouldn't have any materials that would look alright. But it's done and now all that is left for this room is the lighting. I would like to have all the drapes/curtains made for the rest of the rooms before I start on the lighting. Besides, I have to purchase some hanging fixtures or chandeliers. I know, I'm procrastinating, but it isn't something I'm looking forward to doing.

Staircase Runner

I chose a wallpaper border pattern that I liked and thought would look ok on this staircase and made it 2 1/4" in width. It also had to be scaled down to fit in a 1/12 scale house. I lengthened it to 11" and I needed to copy it once more.
From this, I printed it out onto fabric which comes in sheets with paper backing and is used for inkjet printers. I wasn't exactly sure how the pattern would look on the stairs but once it was glued on, I felt good about my choice. This is the final result.

Once that was done, I cut the ends off of 12 toothpicks and painted them metallic gold and glued them on each step.


Then There Was Light!!!!

One room done, it lights up and the curtains are made. I'm thrilled the kitchen is done!

The Postman Came

What an exciting day! I wish you could have seen me unwrapping all the little goodies I received from dollhouses and more today. Two different bathroom sets (I'll use them one day), my new bathroom mirror; it's black with gold trim and goes so well in the bathroom of this house. Also two infants rooms, one set in white, the other in mahogany which I decided best suited this house. Two children's rooms as well and highchairs in both colors too and two new chairs for the chess table.
I found my mirrors which just disappeared on me a few days ago, they were in my cupboard where they were supposed to be but I forgot to look in there. Poor DH got the brunt of that one. Of course he stole them!!
So I made my mirror for the bed set and cut some upholstery fabric for a little rug in there as well. Ohh and I hung my door on the kitchen too. Missy made me lots of flower vases so I've used them everywhere in the house. They are just gorgeous. She also made the vase of flowers and perfume bottles on the wicker dresser. Then I had to take pictures. I'm just loving this house, and after each little change I feel it all the more.

I've been working all weekend (Dec 2 & 3) on this bedroom set and now it's finally finished. I'm waiting on the baby's room and the master bedroom furniture to arrive and making the drapes. Ohhh, I'm sure there are some other odds and ends to do. Carpeting on the second staircase and such. For some reason, I keep forgetting about putting in lights, I sure hate the thought of doing that but I've got to bite the bullet on that one, don't I? It will get done, hopefully, one day!

Here is a picture of the front it's finally finished.

What would a house be if I didn't have at least one room designated for furniture that I've made! So I made the attic bedroom the one for my wicker bedroom set. This set is not staying, I only wanted to see how it fit. I will be making a dark brown set for this room. The other room a sewing room. The roof needed something but I'm not sure if I will keep it this way and I took a picture of the whole house as it is now.
