So.... apparently, I just forgot to talk about the attic wall in the last post. OOPS! I will chalk it up to blood loss. :) While cutting the new window frame, I sliced my finger pretty badly. Gashed it right open. Blood and wooziness. I probably needed stitches, but being insuranceless, I tend to ignore all things medical. Liquid bandaid to the rescue!
Okay, so here is what I did: There are no before or during pictures. We have already established that I suck at that. :D I used the same rustic siding strips for the wall that I used on the Lodge. I used basswood to make the custom window frame... and Houseworks mullions for, well, the mullions.
The wood got a random wash of maple stain, dirty water, Warm White by Americana, Snow White by Americana and Robin Egg Blue by Americana. The window was painted Snow White. The rest of the trim was left natural. The trim around the dormer will be painted Snow White, too.
And I made a mattress for the guest are in the attic. It is a piece of 3/8 thick styrofoam that I wrapped with some fabric I got from April.
April. :) And all the pillows will be, too.
There are two pins holding them down for now. Later, I will put a fat pillow there.
Brae when I visited her in October.

The Charming Cottage kit came yesterday. I already dry fitted it, but I need to finish up the Eclectic Tennyson in time for the Undersized Urbanite contest! And I will try to find something on the side to work on once I start my _____________________ for the Creatin Contest! Eep!
