I have to say, I didn't do it anything like I was going too.
I'd planned to make it all shabby chic...but, it didn't fall that direction.
You know, mini worlds have a mind of their own.
I had to rip all the paper off the walls, how ugly is that?
Then figure out how and what to do.
It's all a work in progress and who knows, it might change more...oh heck, I'm sure it will change more.
Now I'm going with a *Frenchy* look...what ever that is????
I have to design it with what I've collected....lets see what that turns into.
Here's my mess!
I had to tear off all the wallpaper... ick, that wasn't fun.
You're probably wondering whats going on in the middle of the floor.... Well, that's covering up the hole where the staircase is SUPPOSE to go. I don't like staircases..they take up tooooo much room.
Okay...now to address the wallpaper issue. I was worried that putting paper on the uneven wall would be a disaster, so...... I put it on cardboard, then glued the cardboard to the wall.
You are never going to believe what the wallpaper is???
You know those old vintage photo albums, with the soft paper, yummy carmel color...yep, that's what I used. Now, that's thinking outside the box, don't ya think?
Doesn't it look kind of suede like? If you can't see it...you'll have to take my word for it...it looks suedey.
(I have my own language)
It's making me happy.
Now, the floor issue.
I have a couple options....
My daughter suggested cork for the flooring...thats what you are seeing here.
Not sure if it's the final answer, but it looks pretty good.
Now the room is taking on a completely different look.
I repainted the kitchen units... they are sitting/laying holding down the cork floor.
What a sight.
I grabbed a few things to stage the look.... now, what will I use?
Your guess is as good as mine as to what the end result will be....
I chose these brown pieces of furniture...they could get painted white. We'll see.
So much more work....
TOMORROWS ANOTHER DAY.
How did your day go?
Any mini playing?
