First some tea set and tableware pieces that I got for cheap off amazon (these are just a few of the pieces-- love that teeny bowl), and a couple pieces from the many minis that my aunt sent:
This is an awfully blurry pic but it gives a notion of my brick touchups (peach and gray) over the barn red:
Here we are after sealing then grout (spackle mixed with water and paints) and after wiping off grout from the brick faces:
I think that I will do a little touchup with a paint wash before I seal it; I might have toned down the red too much.
Fireplace mantel in dry-fit, with the lightbulbs turned on. This one definitely needs some brick touchup-- went overboard on the toning-down.
That lamp shade just needs something. Maybe some copper spray paint.
