Still plugging away



As usual I was too impatient to wait until all the stone work was finished to add shading and seal it. The front and one side are completed. I still have the other side and the little bit of back left to do. To add to the cottage look I think I will add faux black iron hinges to the door when I add the knob. I haven't decided for sure whether I will add interior dividing walls or just leave the rooms open. Anyone have an opinion you'd like to share? I am open to ideas.

My furniture is not very "cottagey." I may keep the kitchen and bathroom fixtures and make the rest of the furniture for the house. Again, I am open to your thoughts on this.

I'm waiting for my daughter to arrive so we can go thrifting. There won't be much progress on the cottage until this evening or maybe tomorrow. In the meantime, leave a comment with your thoughts and have a blessed day!

Hi De,
That looks wonderful! Since the house is 1/2" scale and rather small I think I would leave the rooms open, it may look too squishy with divider walls. I think the open rooms on this size house make it look more like a cottage. But I'm sure whatever you do will be great.
Have fun!

Thanks for your input, Gina!

well since you asked I think you should make the furniture for it since it's a cute little custom house. (you're great furniture maker.)

Have a great weekend :)

Hugs

I think I agree, Marisa. It is crying out for comfy, overstuffed living room furniture and an old iron bed. I see it in my head - now to transfer it to the finished product. :-)
