I'm using a brown Sharpie to add knots to my panels. They are cut to size and I used the back of the knife to score the planks. I mixed a custom stain. Once stained I lightly traced the plank lines with a pencil and sealed the wood. I'll finish the others then see how easy or difficult it will be to work around the windows and door. I'm pleased with the look, though, so it will be worth the effort.
The upper cabinets are installed, as is the range fan. All that's left is the detail work in this room. That's the fun part!
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!
