Here are the finished steps. I used thinned gray paint and dripped it into the grout lines. Then I brushed pastel colors into each individual brick. I finished the whole thing with a coat of matte Mod Podge to seal it.
This is the door with paper behind it so that you can see the glass pattern. The door knob is a mini paper fastener flattened out.
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
