And here's a look at the empty room. I always think the empty rooms look smaller then they are
I have to take a moment and thank you all for your wonderful comments. You flatter me with all your kindess and I think it high praise indeed coming from such talented artists as yourselves. I say it every week but it's the truth, it meas a lot to me and keeps me going. Several times friends have commented that being afraid of failure keeps them from trying. The only reason I have acheived what I haven is because I never shy away from a challenge. If I mess up, big deal! I swear a little, laugh a lot, and move on.
Since my post was rather short, I figured I'd put up some pictures of the last projects I built before starting on Dewell Manor. When I think of the Foxhall Manor I built, all I think about are my errors: bad crown molding (attached with nails no less), bad paint, oversized tiles and grout lines, crooked construction, rediculous hinging on cabinet doors, bad brick work in the kitchen...
|I was happy witht he popsicle stick flooring on the second floor|
|I loved my design for the kitchen and was happy to scratch build everything...but boy do I wish I had payed more attention to the small details|
|I must admit, I was really happy with the appliances I made, however, the hinges on the cabinets ruined the effect|
|World's largest grout lines|
|Do not use high gloss paints on miniature doors and trim|
|I made this room for my # 1 aunt Lorraine. I used it to test several Whitledge-Burgess Techniques I read about in a magazine article. I was happy enough with the box to take on Dewell Manor|
On that note, I wish you all a wonderful week. I will be commenting on your blogs I promise, work has just been taking A LOT out of me the past few weeks and the computer is the last thing I want to look at when I get home.
I wish you all the best my friends
Huge Giac hugs to all,
