Do you ever get that little voice in your head that says nope that’s not quite right? Well I did so this weekend I mixed brown & black paint with that stuff that turns acrylic paint into stain and with a paint brush and rag I went to town on the floors. I’d glop some paint/stain on the floors and smush it around. I even made sure to get it on the base boards and in the corners. Then with the cloth I’d wipe it back down. I did this several times so it brought a more worn look to the floors. Between each layer I would let the floor dry; this was easier than I thought considering I have 4 rooms with wood floors.
By Saturday afternoon I had the house flipped upside down and attached the base which then had to stay that way overnight to make sure the glue was good and dry. Sunday I added the front framework on the first and second floor – the 3rd floor framing will have to wait till I get the roofing done. I’m torn between lead roofing, slate or shingles. The shingles I already have because they came with the kit but for where the house would be I think mainly the roofing is either lead or slate. Slate I can do in either paper egg cartons or paper clay. The lead would be trickier but again I think I can create that too. I wonder if I can fake lead roofing with sticks and layers of aluminum foil or tissue paper and paint? I think I need a play date with a mini roofer! lol
Have a great week everyone.
