Now that the stupid shingles are done, we can do some of the fun stuff.
What a relief to be able to breath deeply again!
As for the fun stuff, I started the molding around the roof edges. The kit comes with plain planks as edging. I had to jazz that up a bit. In place of the kit trim, I used some large crown molding.
I just like the detail that it gives. So does Tessie. See the smile on her face?
I ran some door trim on either side of the open tower.
I painted the interior walls Ceramcoat Sandstone. We wanted to keep it neutral so that plants and pots will show better. I still need to put some trim around the top and bottom interior.
Tessie is anxious to start potting. I won't let her until she gets her own table.
She took one look at the opening and declared that it was way too plain. "It needs something." she said.
I dug through the wood scrap drawer and found some scalloped trim and some one sixteenth, double bead molding.
I ran two rows of the double bead across the top and painted it Light Ivory to match the trim. I glued it in place.
Tessie tells me that it still needs something. She suggested either curtains at the side or a striped valence across the top, behind the scallops.
I am going to go do the Monday housework and laundry now.....While I am doing that, I am going to be figuring out the rest of the roof garden in my mind. See? Housework can be fun!
See you tomorrow.
