Today was the day for the house. I managed to avoid tackling the servants bells & laid wood floors instead. I used a previously laid floor with beautiful trim from Small World Minis on eBay (one of my 2 fave suppliers of building materials). I had to add some extra around the edges (which needs finishing).
I also did the library: I used some assemble-yourself parquet trim which looked amazing once I finished. I really enjoyed the hands-on part. I decided to add a star detail afterwards (it was an extra piece I had kicking around). I even got the wainscot done: complete with secret door….
Afterwards, I set up my newly arrived gothic dining set in the library: chairs from eBay seller pedalcarsntrains & trestle table from online store Bijou. I love these pieces. You can’t tell, but the chairs are resin. To the right are my pocket doors into the drawing room.
