Here's the very little what I have done today:
The table is bought one, I just painted it to resemble mahogany and I found excellent paint for it - brown Waco glass paint. I didn't have to sand the table at all and the paint leaves a really nice shiny, even surface and dries really fast :) Beside it is an antique birdcage, from the looks of it for a really big bird :D Hope that the person who it's going to likes it - antique, birdcage - ringing any bells for someone ;) And if you (a hint more - N.) recognize yourself, you can stuck it to the very furthest corner in your new project :D
I've been figuring out the lighting for the Toscana house - burned 2 fuses and noticed that the bathroom light doesn't work anymore so probably more soldering to be done. As I really don't want to do all the lighting myself (althoug diy ones seem to work much better than the bought ones) I've been surfing in the internet to find some nice lights. And yes, have found many, but the prices...
I'm stuck with the Toscana house before I have most of the lights before I can do the floor for the second floor. Needed are 2 table lights, 1 wall light and 1 ceiling light and before the roof can go up I need still 2 more ceiling lights.
I was going through my building materials and thank goodness I have enough wood for the Toscana houses floors. I have also these nice real sandstone tiles and I'm going to use them in the Poe houses kitchen. I'm probably going to do the Poe/Orchid as a mirror image and will leave the other end without windows as I want a fireplace and chimney to the house. The stairs are also a small question as if I do the house as a mirror image, the stairs would come up in the front of the bay window so I might have to use different kind of stairs than the ones supplied in the kit.
Weekend is going to be busy as my son has big ice-hockey tournament and I'm there working so hope that I get some minies done.
