Quick Coxwolds update
Hi all. We had a public holiday here yesterday (Tuesday) and with going to Ballarat last weekend and my husband taking Monday off as well, I am out of whack for the week. So it seems like Monday but is actually Wednesday.
I have made a bit of progress with the Coxwolds. The living quarters are almost done, which leaves the kitchen and shop downstairs. I have grand plans of having this finished by end of the year (in the sense of having rooms and exterior decoration complete; furniture/accessories/garden won't be complete of course!).
Here is the entry almost done:
(I didn't buy any floor tiles for here, and found some burgandy tiles in my stash which matched, but I didn't have enough. Originally I thought of having a built-in vanity or cupboard so I could omit tiles underneath it - I REALLY wanted the cupboard, but the room is so small it was too awkward. Then I thought of having a gap where I'd put a rug. Then, I thought given I had some of the same tiles in green and yellow, I could paint them black and use as a border tile. It worked out OK I think)
The living room (NEEDS gap filling!!):
I didn't use the hinges supplied with the kit as I didn't want them all over my pretty walls, so used smaller ones. Unfortunately they don't quite shut properly. I may remove them and cut out a larger rebate to accommodate the screw heads or maybe try to screw the screws further into the wood. Either way it needs looking at.
Hope everyone's week is going well.
