The Frog Prince...
This was one of the most fun rooms to do in the castle.
I got to do my first Victorian Boxed Bathtub. I have done several since then, but this was the first. I used scrapbooking ornamentation on the tub and the valance. At the time I was doing this, there was a wealth of fancy gold designs for scrapbooking... Come to think of it, I still have a lot left. Not complaining. It is just that you don't see as much of the fancy gold stuff around these days.
The mirror was an oval crafting mirror and I simply added leaves to it to match the ones that held up the sea shell sink. I am debating on whether to repaint the gold or leave it looking antique... I think that the antique is winning.
The dressing gown and slippers were actually made to fit the princess and then draped over the bench and sprayed with hairspray to hold it in place.
The curtains were also some of my earliest. I took a class from Judee Williamson on how to do beds and it included some lessons on making curtains on a pinboard. I still use the same method to do all of my curtains and draperies.
Anyway, I now have a clean bathroom and a clean frog. Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
