This Could Take a While!
I decided to do my favorite room first. The rooms sit back in the castle so I can at least do preliminary cleaning wherever I want.
I had forgotten how much inlay I did around the edge of the floor in this room.
The floor of the fireplace was a piece of illustration board that I painted to look like marble.
I won't keep repeating myself through this cleaning, but I did just about everything(furniture, fabric and structural)myself. Some of the accessories like the fireplace tools and dishes were purchased. Oh! And I also did the food.
I put stuff back and took photos to see what has to be done... It is much easier to see where the problems are when you are photographing than with the naked eye.
I know that I need to do a new table cloth. This one has glue spots. and looks dirty between them.
One of the chairs needs a new bow on one side. Wish me luck on finding some ribbon that matches... It has been fading for a long time.
She took one look at the beast and went "Ick!". You mean I have to like him to get this room... "I don't think so! He's all hairy and wears strange clothes... She has never seen a smoking jacket before. There aren't a lot of them around these days.
Then she nudged Beauty out of the way and looked him straight in the eye, and said, "Maybe you wouldn't be so bad if you shaved and found some decent clothes. Just maybe..."He didn't hear a word that she said. The lights aren't on yet.
It does look like I am going to have a lot of work to do to get this castle habitable. Wish me luck! I'm going to need it!
See you tomorrow.
