And, I got the rest of my bar the other day as well, so I was able to figure out how it will go! I had to add an extra corner piece to the shorter L of the bar in order to make it so it didn't cover the kitchen door. A gate with its post is chilling out in the middle, and I added 'Ardcoat to the bar tops to give it a lacquered look. I hope it comes through it the picture! I think it does. It looks really cool in person.
And on to the bits and bobs that I've been working on. I've been getting stuff for the rooms upstairs done. I decided that there will be five rooms and one office.
DM Scotty (on Youtube... check out his videos! I'm hooked on them, good cheaply made items that anyone can do!)
I like the texture the paper towels bring to the blankets. Makes them look like quilts to me! I think I will used another bookshelf on the second floor somewhere and fill it with folded up 'blankets' and 'pillows' and extra chamberpots. We'll see!
And here is the final picture of the finished bookshelf. I added a scroll on top of the top shelf. It was made with two toothpicks and paper rolled up on them both making a double scroll (or whatever those things are actually called!) I added some seed beads to the ends of each toothpick and them painted them a metallic bronze, to make it seem more important, as well as repainting the 'ribbon' around the middle from red to bronze as well. For some reason the red did not want to stick to the paper I used so I just repainted it.
So yes, that is the progress so far! I still have one bed to make (this one probably completely from scratch.) I'll probably make it smaller than the other four for a smaller race. We will see. It will be in a smaller room as well, so yeah.
As usual, any hints, tips and tricks that could be shared would be much appreciated! I've been having fun with this stuff so far, and I plan on continuing to have fun.
