I've spent all day on the dining room and my eyes are sore from concentrating so much on trying to get the skirting around the fireplace to look right! Thank goodness for Polyfilla and cocktail sticks to apply it with!
It's not perfect, but with a little bit more filler, a good sanding and another coat of paint, once the carpet is down, I reckon it'll pass.
I found this gorgeous little mother-of-pearl seahorse in my Mum's bead box (she lent it to me when she learned I of my mini-ing.)
I then decided that he was wasted just sitting on the mantlepiece like that, so with a couple of matchsticks, I built him a picture frame to go in. His frame also matches the one above which houses a dried flower that was in a box of "things that might come in useful one day" that my Mum also gave me!
And another bead from Mum's box made a perfect "porcelain" vase!
The room is really starting to come together and so I put the dresser and the table and chairs back in to have another sneak preview!
Right, that's it. No more computers or miniatures for me today. My eyes need a rest (and probably a trip to the optician soon too!)
