So today we are going to talk about the Stonehouse Quilt Shop. The last time I checked in on this progress I was still working on putting up the stone on the outside walls. But boy oh boy has more happened since then.
I decided that an old stone house definitely needed to have hard wood floors. So I jumped back into laying my flooring in the house. I again chose to do craft sticks (akin to a popsicle stick) to lay my floor. It was/is tedious work.
I did the only thing I could. I decided to make simple hinges out of Q-tips and posterboard! I crossed my fingers and hoped that they would work. But first I needed to paint them!
And finally it was time to hang the shutters.
And boy was I giddy with excitement when I saw the finished project. The hinges and three dimensional appearance makes it look SOO much more realistic!!!!
Wow.....what an update! That is a whole lot of miniature progress for one post!!!!! I laid, sanded and stained floor, installed a staircase, recreated some shutters, did some painting and made hinges and hung some shutters! I am even more excited about the next steps. I still have more trim to hang and then I will be able to start focusing on the interior......I have some ideas....
