Spring In My Step



Well, I have stalled on my new room box. Debating the flooring options I have set out. It could be regular Popsicle sticks, veneer strips, varying width veneer strips or a wide herringbone. So many options and this was supposed to be a quick project, but my heart says herringbone and that won't be quick. And it will be painful. If I stock up on wine and stain it should be ok.

I've made some progress on Miss Kitty's dollhouse. I think this weekend I will tackle the base.  I need the base to secure the front steps to and add a little area for a garden, but nothing so huge that it becomes any more cumbersome to move around.  The shutters have also been installed along with the door knobs and balconies.

  2. that looks so wonderful Kat, at first I thought you were showing a photo of a corner of your home with some springflowers! Haha, is there such a thing, quick, in miniature? I know I have thought things like that often, our minds are too creative for our practical sides I guess :D :D. I like herringbone and you'll eventually be happy you did it, I'm sure of it (maybe that helps a little if the incentive of wine is not enough, haha). Don't know if you've thought of that yourself already of course, but what helps enormously is to have a simple jig for cutting the same length 'planks' without measuring constantly. If you haven't thought of that already, let me know and I can show you an example. In any case it will still be quite the job, but as I said: well worth it! Enjoy, if not in the forseeable future with your roombox, then with Miss Kitty's dollhouse, have a great weekend!

  3. I love the ambience of your photos Kat. Your warm grey walls look very sooting and I love the mirror and the flowers displayed on the chest. You have put your items to Excellent use and I now hope to see a FABULOUS herringbone floor from you, sometime in the very near future. :)
