Stained glass "windows"

Some things are easier to do in a smaller scale house when the ceiling is still off. One is accessorizing the built in bookcases. Another is hanging artwork and the faux windows. I found an appropriate Arts and Crafts style stained glass design online. I printed it out on transparencies and mounted the cut out images on mirrored poster board. I added mitered trim stained like the window trim and they look very much like the windows that should be on the fireplace wall.
Ben and Ally seem to be enjoying their living room so far. I guess they don't mind the missing front door and the glass in the window, lol. For that matter, they don't even have a ceiling yet. ;)
The desk area looks good, too. The doorway to the kitchen won't have a door. It's more of an archway.

Now that I've had some play time with the mini accessories it's time to get back to the actual construction. The next step on the instruction sheet is to finish the porch. I think I need to assemble, stain and install the front door and then get to the porch.

Back tomorrow with updated photos.

Thank you! I'm surprised at how realistic this little house is looking. I may be a half scale convert after finishing the bungalow. :)
