Anyway, James also got me an external hard drive, so I snagged all the pictures from the computer and can now show you detail shots from the barber shop!!! As emotional as this build was, and as critical as I was of myself, I absolutely ADORE this build.
Let's do a little walk through.... These are in no particular order... because that's how I roll. :) All the pictures are clickable to see a larger one!
|In the very last moments of construction, I made tiny mice to go in the attic. These came about because some of the painted sand fell into the attic and looked a bit like mouse droppings.... apparently, I'm okay with this line. HA!|
|Chrysynbon clock and phone kits. This sort of clock was traditional to the time period, but barbers would also have the face of the clock inverted so that time would be seen correctly in a mirror!|
|Vintage haircut chart and time accurate prices! Wish I could get my hair cut for under a buck now!!|
|The hat and coat are just shaped pieces of grey fabric that I put up there at the last minute. I wanted a scarf, too, but time crunches got me!|
|I LOVE the color pallet I chose here. It looks so timely. And the warm glow cast from the lights makes it seem cozy and comforting.|
|A broom and a mop and a dust pan full of hair! The dust pan is made from paper and a toothpick and the hair is cut from a water color brush. :)|
|Another angle of the counter filled with goodies.|
|Probably one of my favorite things to build in the bunch! This towel steamer is made from card stock, a faucet and two button maker caps. All assembled and then painted with Crown Jewels high pigment silver paint.|
|These vintage sinks were found on ebay and to my extreme luck, I even found 3!!!! They are heavy though! Very solid. The tools on the sinks are laser cut metal that I painted. They were originally in brass.|
|Wanted! Prohibition breaking scum! The coach lights on either side of the door are accurate to our RL building, thought I left them in brass to be accurate to the time.|
|The wrought iron decor in front of the windows is also accurate to our building. It is just now occurring to me that I forgot to paint off the plasticy sheen on them though.....|
|I love shots like this.|
|Barber chairs, in all their glory!!|
And that's all there is to it. I think I have a few shots of the 'work in progress' that I can share later on. Hope you all had a marvelous Christmas holiday. :)
