I finally got some paint on the outside walls. Trying to be as cost-conscious as possible I decided to use paint that I already had on hand. This is from the free quart of paint that Glidden offered a while back. You may remember that I used this color for the old frame that I'm working to turn into a chalk board. The color is an eggshell semimate called Sugared Lime - I think it's kind of different and pretty :)
Notice as if by magic the porch posts have disappeared. Long story. Anyway, they will be back soon enough and I think I'll paint them and all the rest of the trim a nice white.
Now for what I've finally decided (hopefully) to do with that bathroom that I want so badly! This is the front wall of the cottage. To the right you can see what will be the front door. This is a front window that I will use (with the help of an electric saw) to turn into a doorway. Miniatures.com has a modern bathroom that I love and want to use here. I cut out cardstock based on the measurements from their website to make sure that everything will fit. It will be a tight fit, but seriously whose bathroom isn't? You can see that the sink will hang over the edge of the tub, but I think it will still work.
Here is a photo and the link of the bathroom that I want http://www.miniatures.com/Updated-Basic-Bathroom-by-Houseworks-P23218.aspx Cute, huh?
I tried to paint the windows by hand at first, but that turned out to be too much of a pain so instead I went with spray paint.
A view of the side wall with windows put in to show how the trim color will look. This will be the window looking into the kitchen.
Here's a closer view so you can see my "goof-up" door. I roll my eyes even as I type this!!! I've just got to tell myself to be patient and that it will look so much better once my outdoor shelf is added. *Note to self - find a shelf tutorial online!
Happy Monday everyone!
