Dry Fit of Dining room
 


This is the latest dryfit of the dining room. The floors have been installed on their template & will be painted & distressed I think. The fireplace interior brick has been painted awaiting grout. I need to figure out how to simulate a marble hearth (just a stand in piece of mat board with lines at the moment :D )

The windows are giving me trouble. It seems the pieces that have the window tracks in them have had a piece broken off them over the years and so are no longer wide enough to fit the bays. I've currently got them shimmed with paddle pop sticks, but need to come up with a more permanent solution.

I really like your chandelier choice and how bright and cheery this is already. I know it will change from here but sometimes I really love them in this state.

Thanks Debora :)

I really like it like this too... it feels raw and minimalist... there is something appealing about it.

The chandelier is just a standard one I've spray painted silver... It's made the chain a bit weird and stiff, but I prefer the colour to the standard brass. This photo has also made me notice I have a wonky arm... need to sort that out!

I may try some bronzing or aging on it at some point, I'd like it to have a bit more character. :)

Just an idea about making marble-look hearth.

cut out your hearth piece and base coat it white

Get some black or grey fluffy yarn or wool roving.

pull the roving apart until you have whispy pieces that are just a strand or a few strands thick.

Coat the hearth piece with mod podge and carefully drag the yarn whispies through the modpodge until they stick. You just want a strand here and there. Add more in some spots to make wider patches of grey. Trim off any excess.

Top coat with a few coats of semi gloss.

That's how we make marble look stuff in the cosplay world :)

Great idea! :D I think I have all the components to do this already so I'm definitely trying this. Might have to buy some semi gloss.. I'll have to check my stash.

:thankyou:
