But wait...is that a stranger lurking just outside?
What am I talking about? Go to: http://jocelynsdollhouse.blogspot.com/2014_02_01_archive.html and see Jocelyn's New Orleans Creole Townhouse. It is beautiful! It is sentimental! It is true to life! As with all of her work, it is also very detailed.
For some reason, I imagine Jocelyn working quietly on her projects with her hand tools and pencil sketches. As a matter of fact, because of her, I now try drawing things out to get a clear idea of what would work in my future projects.
I find her to be a consummate, professional artist and have seen her perform magic with the same things I have sitting in storage containers waiting for a purpose!
Make sure you look at ALL of the posts about the townhouse to find out why it is sentimental!
And check out her other wonderful projects while you are there!
This is actually the first project that I sketched out as a result of seeing how Jocelyn does it. This is something I work on while I order parts or wait for other projects to dry. It is a Chess themed restaurant that I am building from scratch. It is the first dollhouse project for which I used the Woodworker's Guild machines.
The mirror leaning on the rear wall will be behind the bar that serves healthy snacks, smoothies and such. It will be a place where you can either play chess, participate in tournaments on certain nights or just watch and /or eat. Also, look for posted notices of live entertainment performing on other nights.
(sorry for the dark pictures...I will try to get better ones as I progress)
|Just a close up of the wallpaper|
|The table tops are actually coasters. |
The floor is a real life sized linoleum tile. I will make the slit on the right unnoticeable
|I had to replace some legs so they will be repainted|
|The two rectangles on the back wall are door frames for the men's and women's restrooms|
The bar will go between them
