My intentions were to work on the Newport hallway next, but I realized that my plans for that room need a little more thought, so I went to work on the powder room and the fireplace in the living room. :o)
The powder room just needed a new sconce and some decorations, easy right? Nothing works out that easily for me, LOL! When I was installing the new sconce I accidentally ripped some of the beautiful red wallpaper beyond repair, so I had to do some internet hunting for replacement paper. I found some on my new favorite paper source http://www.scrapbook.com/. Be warned, you will spend too much time and money on this website, LOL!
Above is a view of the powder room through the living room, without the partition. The sink and toilet I found on the Elf Miniatures website.
I made the frames for these pictures that I found online a long time ago ( I can't remember where now) The towel is a stand in for the time being until I find one I like. I just used an old wash cloth that I had on hand and cut a little piece off of it (Shhh, don't tell!)
Now I just need to decide on some kind of shade or valance maybe for the window and a rug. I think I will also add some sort of shelf above the toilet to store towels and other necessities.
This picture shows the partition installed for the powder room.
The furniture is a set that I purchased from Kris Compas. I have several of her pieces and I can't say enough good things about her work!! I love it!
I'm not sure if it will stay in this room, but I really wanted to display it :o)
I built the fireplace from scraps that I had on hand and I have to say that I am extremely happy with how it turned out!
I'm not sure if you can see it, but the picture on the mantle is my daughter and niece. It was taken a few years ago and is one of my favorites. I resized it on my computer and printed it. The frame is one that is easily found online, I just painted it and sealed it along with the picture. The box is a metal mini that I also painted. Minis and More has a great selection of metal miniatures if you are interested in those!
I love this umbrella stand! I found it on E-bay, it has such great detail! The umbrella is incredible too!
Last, but not least, I wanted to show my decoys. These two little ones reside on the mantle in the study. They were made by Douglas Guy. He does wonderful work with a lot of attention to detail!
I hope you enjoyed the photos!
Have a great weekend!
