We three doors...still very much WIP and the camera lies terribly with the tone of the pink, no matter what light I put it in, the camera lies! lol
Just a little post to introduce the terrace of 3 shops plus rooms above! It has 9 rooms in total. It has three shops, the red door is for Scrivenshaft's Quill shop (a stationery shop etc), the green door is for The Magic Neep (the greengrocers, though mine will have some other grocery items too) and the pink door is for Twilfitt and Tattings shop (a clothes and uniform shop). The upstairs is Brews and Stews, a Bed and Breakfast and the room directly about the pink door is the clothes makers work room.
These photo's aren't real time photo's....just showing you how it started out....the inside and outside has been primed in proper shop bought primer, a must for MDF. :o(
Laying out the component parts for the Scrivenshaft's...all primed, but this time with a homemade version as it's thinner.
Seeing how the first two shops look with some of the component pieces just balanced on! lol
Twilfit and Tattings shop with its windows altered...more on that another time! ;o)
Scrivenshaft's with its red paint applied and some distressing....
The shops floorboards made and laid...before all the staining was applied and wax polish to age and finish it.
After a coat of wax polish.
The Magic Neeps's floor...I wanted the old fashioned lino look!
After it had been distressed and aged.
Laying Twilfitt and Tattings floorboards...they have a reddish colour.
All my flooring's will be removable above the ground floor, this is to get to any lights and their wires laid into the floor. I simply glue my floorboards onto the thick paper (pre stained) that I've cut to the size and shape of the room. I stopped gluing the floorboards at that point as I need to measure the fireplace so I can cut the flooring around it.
All my doors are primed too, it takes ages to prepare all the pieces!
Ageing The Magic Neep's door.
The top floor's ceilings will have rafters....
The rafters have been aged, distressed and stained, they just need to be waxed next to seal them. ;o)
So that's a short introduction to the terrace....more soon!
I hope you don’t mind my ramblings and madness! :o))
