    The Loo Drapes

    From the album: SF555 - 1st Build in 29 years

    This was an interesting little learning experience....thought I had it all figured out until I realized I couldn't cut the brass rod with just my nippers and not crush the rod.....so I bought a little cutter tool....and the rest is history! Now no one can peek in on the resident while she's in the tub!
  2. Howdy all, Here are some (hopefully not sideways!) photos of the bed frame that I have been working on for the attic bedroom of my Orchid (Sweet Cypress Cottage). I built it from scratch, from my own improvised design. I decided to go for a heavy patina look; I love verdigris what can I say! This is the first coat of simulated patina (mixed up my own batch of acrylic paints for the occasion). It needs a few more coats (not to mention a mattress and frills!); I will be adjusting shades as I dapple on layers for a textured, aged look. I'd like some opinions on this: the green chair to the right (which, I know, needs some dirtying up/aging) is from an HoM kit. I decided to paint and add brass findings instead of staining. I'm wondering, does the olive tone throw off the patina color (as in, make it seem too blue)? I'm also wondering: do you think these two pieces should be in the same room? I know the camera plays tricks, but I'm a little worried about the weird size relationship between them. Anyone have thoughts or opinions? Happy to hear them!

  6. Good morning, everyone! I'm finding curtain rods to be quite challenging - I purchase some brass and silver jewelry heavy gauge wire with the tool to straighten the wire, but finding the challenge in what to use for brackets. I have many windows in the house and to purchase the pre-made sets is quite spendy. Anyone have a resource or ideas they are willing to share for the brackets and how to attach so the rod is far enough away from the wall so the curtains can slide? I can do most other things for the house - just drawing a blank in the hardware arena. Thank you so much for whatever assistance you can provide.

    More from my collection. Top left is a piercing template.
  8. Hey guys, does anyone have any great mini-maker shops with realistic hardware? Specifically door hardware, like door latches, strike plates, etc. Also, realistic door knobs, handles, pulls. I'm thinking along the lines of the hardware in Frances Glessner Lee's Nutshell Studies I know she had a personal carpenter make them for her, but I really want some realistic hardware! Or are there any great tips/tricks for making them? Thanks!
  9. I had to do some clothes shopping today (ugh) but I always cast my eye over the jewelry stands, in case. And today, I was rewarded richly with these amazing earrings: The individual charms look perfect for gingerbread trim decorations, see? There were only 3 pairs of earrings left, so I grabbed them all before any of the other shoppers could even blink twice. That's about 96 charms, enough to glue to both sides of the gingerbread trim of the roof so that it looks gilded from all angles. Since Santa's House is getting a red roof with green walls, maybe I should paint the trim green as well? Or will red paint make the gold "pop" more? Or how about leaving the trim white, with the gold to give it some sparkle? Any ideas which colour would look better? Oh, and my husband suggested that a stone finish for the porch foundation walls would look better than plain paint. Sigh. More work. At least he is showing an interest!

    Brass4

    From the album: Tools

    The one on the left is particularly delicate, I hope it will work with spackle. The one on the right would make a nice floor centre-piece.

    Square locket

    From the album: Lily Beach House

    Bought 6 of the square lockets. I want to mount them on the wall 3 on top and 3 underneath - with a different little seashell in each one. Perhaps I could make miniature tassels to hang from the loop (if I mount them upside down).

    Round locket

    From the album: Lily Beach House

    Bought this locket on Amazon - it will make a cool shadowbox for some seashells!
  15. From the album: Lily Beach House

    Some of the new items: Brass inlaid trunk, brass key chain with working compass, some ceramic bowls and a pot. There's a plate of crab (magnet), plastic fish for possible mounting on a plaque and a dangling brass earring to be used as a light fitting.

    I recently ordered new brass coach lights for the front entry, looking forward to replacing the broken ones shown here.
