Newport living room (2)

Newport living room (2)

Well, I made my Memorial Day (day off from work) count! I painted the wood parts: black for the fire surround, white for the trim and Bittersweet Chocolate by Americana for the mantel. I ended up going with a thicker piece for the mantel after seeing the mockup in place. I cut and painted strip wood to finish the rough edges of the tiles used for the hearth. The wallpaper on the fireplace wall won't be permanently attached until the house is nearly complete since I need to be able to access the wiring behind the chimney breast - so that's the reason for the poor fit along the ceiling and around the doorway. The artwork is <i>Plum Tree Panel III</i> by Rodolfo Jimenez printed on Art Canvas by The Crafty PC. I will frame it before final installation.

From the album:

So realistic! Love the art work too! I love the way you give so many details in your descriptions. Its interesting to learn so much detail about how the scene was created.

Brae, this house is amazing. I'm like a little kid on Xmas...waiting for the final pieces so I can see the overall project!

Thanks so much, everyone! I, too, wish I could live in my mini house. But, it gives me ideas for my real life house - trying out bolder things in mini is much less of a risk! And, it takes less time. :lol:

I've been skimming through your Newport album, You are extremely talented with all the interior decor and making your own items or refurbishing old ones! I love your style! I love the colors (and everything) in the living room! :wub:
