I did the ceiling like the sky with clouds. And I added a light in the chandelier. The chandelier is pretty big. So I started a smaller one. Then I tried out both and guess what... I like the big one! It looks more opulent. I did the door trim and painted it gold.
I also started on the outside. First, I painted the barn black so that when I put the boards, I could leave gaps. I carved on some stones.
Here's the other side. I'll have to wait till the roof is on to complete the chimney. It's such a puzzle figuring out what should be done first! I'm always afraid of that " oops! I forgot..." moment.
In case you think you recognize this little structure- it's Greenleaf's Annie's Lobster Shack. I just cut out a window in the roof to make a dormer and covered up the side window. I also made the other window bigger and didn't put windows in the door.
I painted a carved out design in gold for the door.
It's just resting against the wall right now.
I think I like this color! That's my camera setting. I'll might try painting the bulb again. This time in yellow. I'll give this some thought!
