....sneak preview....


I am currently working on the bathroom/dressing room of the 'petite maison'....it is going to take a little while to get to the stage where I am happy to share it all with you, but for now I thought you might like a little sneak preview of the job at hand.
The bathroom is situated at the back of the house and the dressing room will be forward of this, through a decorative walk way....Once again I have made wall panelling for each room and the 'dreaded' floor tiles are also in these rooms.....I couldn't understand why the tiles were taking me so long to complete this time, but then I realised that seeing it was a bathroom area I made them smaller than the entrance hall and the bedroom....."a mere 370 floor tiles!!"...no wonder my fingers were sore! I hope to have this room completed in the near future so then I can move on to my 'last' room....I'm not sure if I will be happy or sad to see the "Petite Maison" finished!!!..........what will I do then?

It is so funny that the closer I get to finishing the 'petite maison' the more 'fuzzy' the ideas become, I thought I had a pretty good idea on what I might do next, but it just seems a bit of a 'blurr' now!! I'll finish this first then think about what to do next...???

You'll find inspiration strikes and you'll be off and running! It'll just take something small - a piece of furniture, wallpaper, a picture in a magazine and then you will be 10 steps ahead of yourself thinking about the new project! Or is that just me???

Also, looking fantastic Linda!

It´s simply stunning... like the rest of the house!!
Imaging having the patient you have......
The table with the sink...I guess it´s a kit? It´s so nice to see all your different furniture..... different from the european furniture :D I am, like the rest of your followers, so exited to se the "all made up" result!

I am sure you will experience a kind of emptiness after finnishing this huge project! But take your time, enjoy the house..... and the ideas will come to you ;D
Mini hug!

That toilet is so elegant, where on earth did you find such a beautifully shaped one?

It will be stunning just as the rest of the house.

And whatever comes next? It'll come to you :)

Linda, it's looking absolutely gorgeous . . . I can't wait to see it all come together. I feel for your fingers! LOL!

When it's all finished you'll do what every warm blooded woman does . . . redecorate! LOL!!

Hugs,
Teresa

I agree, it's gorgeous and then you are going to have to get another house. ;)

MiniLover said...

I am in awe of your patience--especially in making those tiles when it would be so much easier to simply buy ceramic tiles! But yours look amazing.

I also love seeing what furniture you are using. Here in the US Bespaq and a few others are about all that is available, which leads to much sameness, which is regretable.

You will surely be inspired to start another project--perhaps not so big--but once bitten by the bug, I can't imagine not continuing to use your creativity in this fashion.

What a preview. I can't wait to see the rest. Thank you for your help with my panels. I have just finished painting them. You can see them at my blog. http://minminiverden.blogspot.com/

This bathroom looks so beautiful just like the rest of the house! Love those little duckeys!;D Its a little bit shame that you can not see much of it when the dressingroom is furnished, there is no side window where you can peek? But it is like a real house, most dollhouses have no depth.
What will be the last room?

Do you need idea's for the next house? I do have ideas!

Thanks for the sneak peek into your bathroom - it's looking lovely. I'm sure when you've complete La Petite Maison you wont just stop with one property!

Hello Linda and followers! It's obvious that you have a talent for fine detail Linda - if a friend of mine can house 3 doll houses plus various miniature shops I'm certain you can also! perhaps some 'shoe box' rooms - my grandmother used to make beautiful cradles from such things. Her dining room table was 'dripping' with ribbons, laces and various notions, including doll houses - I'm loving all of this and I thank you. TerryX
