Ceiling, trim, and beds
Hi. Didn't have a job today so I worked on the firehouse. I decided to paint the ceiling brown. Hubby said they didn't really do white ceilings. Go figure.
I also decided to put a baseboard on the far wall. Then I painted the things that stick out a chocolate brown. Kind of looks like a hacienda at this point.
And then I couldn't help myself. I started to play with making cots. So I made 3 of them, complete with coverlet and a pillow. Turned out well. Then hubby said they do need foot lockers. LOL So that will probably be tomorrow.
I am looking to make a potbellied stove for the sleeping quarters. So I found some things a Lowe's tonight. I have to look up how to paint white pvc pipe. The items didn't come in black.
I also need to make a set of stairs. Hubby said they couldn't go up the pole. He's a riot. Hmmm.... Speaking of the fireman's pole, I finished it. Used a dowel. Used gold paint with a bit of black in it. Looks good.
Because the original building materials included "trim" made from cardboard, it was beginning to get yucky. So I took it off. It took a while to get it off. But once everything has the stone on it, I will put new trim on it.
Oh yes, hubby asked about a bathroom. I forget about the details sometimes!
So enjoy the pix. I think I will begin doing the brickwork tomorrow afternoon because it takes time to dry in between coats. I have been looking at a video on how to do it so I will review it tomorrow morning after chores. I figure a good several days for the brickwork to be finished. I am going to try a chimney, too. We'll see.
