I then shingled the porch roof and painted that too.
Inside I have built and painted both the upstairs bannisters and the ladder. They are not glued in yet because I want to put my furniture in first.
I then went on to build my first 144th scale furniture. Which I have really enjoyed doing. They are quite fiddly but with plenty of advice from Judith I have managed.
I built the Nautical bench first. I shall paint this at a later date. It is sitting on a 20p to give an idea of scale.
I then went on to build the table, this was a bit harder the legs are so skinny and delicate. I stained the pieces with wood stain first. Again I have photographed it next to a 20p.
This is a Tudor Ice Cabinet, which I also stained before building.
I have also been working on the Artist Cabinet for Pickett Hill. Having painted it the other day I have put all the artwork on this afternoon - which, as always with the Betterleys, is just gorgeous!
So a busy miniature building day!!!
