Bathroom almost finished!

I have made some headway since I got my lights and tiles. Although unfortunately I don't have enough tiles, so I will need to order some more. But the bathroom is almost finished - I just need to make a shower curtain and hang it and the rail.

I am almost finished the kitchen, but it needs a paint. I am really happy with how it turned out. Now I need to decide on which stove to get. I love the Pheonix ones, but the choice will still be difficult - gas or electric? Also wondering if I'll add a curtain to the door which leads into the shop. Maybe a lace one???

Lastly the hallway, where the stairs arrive at the second floor. I am yet to paperclay the walls but I've finished the floorboards. Had some issues getting them to sit flat, with the wiring underneath! Might have to make channels for wires to sit in next time I make a dollhouse with floorboards.

Now, must get back to paperclaying and laying floorboards!

Let there be light....

I have attached some lights and wired them in. I am having a few problems with some of the bulbs though, unfortunately. The connections seem a little loose, so that will need some jiggling before the fixtures are properly wired in.

This picture shows the chandelier in the entry. Will look much better when I have added texture to the walls and painted them. I was originally going to do more on this light but decided I liked it as it was, especially given it goes in the entry.

The next photo shows the guest bedroom with it's little bedside lamp. Not sure that this is it's finally resting place, but I do like it in here. I also swapped the beds. It fits better than the other one. The bedside is not staying, but I needed something to put the light on. Not sure whether it will be a small table of some description, or a shelf. Probably a table...

This last pic shows the bedroom using the camera's flash, just to show the room colour. Probably a little brighter than I anticipated, but I think I like it. I also think it's too late to change it!

A picture frame is lying on the floor waiting for a picture, as is the little standing frame on the bedside. Still undecided about the colour of fabric for under the bedcover, but the beige looks OK given the colour of the chair.

Next job - paper-claying, and lots of it!
