The Bathroom

With the addition of all the little accessories for The Bathroom, I now have another completed room.   (Just one more to go and that's the interior of this property finished - what will I do with myself?)

I've shown this pic before but I thought I'd use it as a reminder and point out one or two things for you.   The room is narrow, measuring only 6.5" x 14" deep (16.5cms x 35.6cms).   The panelling was created using iron on flooring, with strips of skirting and dado rail and the paper was printed from Jennifers Printables.

I got even more adventurous and made my own flooring using the instructions in Lea Frisoni's book.   The little light fittings came from Art of Mini

So, on with the decor.   The cabinet was purchased from a fair (not Miniatura) and I added all the little contents.   The boxes were complementary kits received with an order.
Something was needed for the walls despite the paper being quite busy.   As they had no idea initially as to how a bathroom should look, the Victorians treated it like they would any other room in the house and filled it with stuff!
The shell pictures were made using some lovely tiny little shells I received as a gift from Fi   Thank you again Fi, they're just lovely and suit this room perfectly.
The bathroom suite I have had for quite some time.   It was already this colour and all I did was alter the toilet.   I think in time I will be changing the plant for a floral arrangement.   (In fact, I don't "think", I know I will be changing this!)
The chair came unfinished and has been tarted up a bit and the slippers were made by me following a little tutorial featured here
The table was put together with bits of balsa and covered.   The little items on display there were goodies brought back from Miniatura.
I must confess, I do like the next few pictures taken with the lights on.   I surprised myself with those ones!

The attic store room

Firstly, thank you all for the lovely comments you left regarding my purchases at Miniatura.   I admit it does look rather like I was shopping for Scotland but I enjoyed every minute of it and it's only twice a year!

Secondly, a very warm welcome to all new followers.   I'm very pleased to have you here and hope you like what you see.

I was hoping to show you all the bathroom first but would you believe it - there's a little something I still have to get.   Yes, even after all that shopping, I'm missing something!

So - the store room.   The only lighting in this room is the lamp at the back, on the table.     There's not really much more I can say about this room - it is what it is!
