Hello all! I am BEYOND happy to be back to working on my house on a regular basis. It has actually been making me more relaxed than those hours and hours of TV shows. (Okay, I can admit I have still been watching Grey's Anatomy. What can I say? It's a good show. ^^' ) Today I worked on the kitchen floor! I begun the same way I did the bricks. I cut 1 inch squares from egg carton to give the look of (stone?) tile floor. I used a popsicle stick as a spacer so that each tile was pretty evenly spaced. Here is what I had once the tiles were down-
Not too shabby, huh? I actually ended up stacking some things on the floor at this point to flatten the tiles down better. I was already liking it, but then I painted it and BAM. I started to LOVE it .
I'm still going to go back in and add some grout and dirty it up a bit. I wasn't going to go with white tiles, but I think it contrasts nicely to the dark flooring in the living room. OH! As for the living room floor, when I glued down the wood pieces, some were thicker than others (????) so I am now in the process of sanding it all down to a some-what-even surface. Here is a shot of the whole floor-
Well, I took this picture before I painted the tiles- but you kinda get it! Haha! As for the title of this post.... I was thinking about the name of this build- and it is taking a much different direction than what I originally thought. It has started to take more of an older southern home- so... The Magnolia! I think it is the perfect name, especially after reflecting back on some of inspiration pictures. I will go more into the name a little later, so be on the lookout for that!
Anyways, I am going to go get back to work on ~The Magnolia~ !!! I also made a cake today! It was really nice to be working with clay again, too. And I haven't forgotten about my candy! It is just SO time consuming to make all of it that I am working on it in waves. Heehee :)
Thanks for stopping by!
