Today I Started Building New Rooms
I am constantly trying to figure out how to do things faster and better. As most of you know, most of my dioramas go up, I shoot the scenes, and then they come down. I have to rebuild them when I want to shoot another scene in that room. I decided to build a few permanent rooms, so that I can do more photostories and videos quicker. Some rooms will still have to be built and taken down, but not as many.
First off, Shantavia's studio: The guys delivered her new workstation today. This is where she will frame most of her work. It also has storage for her canvases She was able to get the new floor laid in the work area before they brought in the workstation. Behind the loveseat, she had wallpaper installed to complement the room. She still has to get the lighting installed, and get all of her pictures hung. The little white rug is just a place holder for the rug that is going to be delivered. She put in a small TV, so that Jada could have something to watch while mommy works.
I then moved on to Joseph's nursery. He is Leslie and David's little boy.
Believe it or not, I didn't intentionally buy the lion and elephant cutouts, or the giraffe to match the picture on the wall. It just happened that way. Sometimes even I am amazed. I handmade the crib. This is actually the first prototype that I did. The cribs that I sell in my Etsy store are a bit taller than this one. Don't go running to the store, they are currently out of stock. However, it is on my list of things to complete soon.
Leslie is recently back from the Daddy/Daughter dance. She is in the process of putting Joseph to bed.
He seems a tad bit fussy this evening.
He is dry and he doesn't seem to want his bottle.
Leslie thinks that he is just fighting sleep. She hopes it won't be long before he gives in. She is exhausted from all the dancing she did. She hopes that David is tired, too. She is in need of a good night's sleep.
I then moved on to Nicole's room. At least the room she has at her dad's house. She is lucky enough to have 2 bedrooms. This is probably the only one you guys will see. Her daddy, Roderick, has a lot of work to do in this room. He and Nicole are still deciding on colors. He still has to build her desk. The one that is shown is too small for her. It is just a placeholder for now. Once they decide on colors, they can select the wallpaper and the curtains. It will be a great project for them.
Lydia Thompson, the interior designer, has made some progress on Darius' place, but not enough to take pictures yet. Danielle has also had some remodeling done on her home. There is still a lot of work to be done, but it is pretty much ready to be seen. She had a new laundry room installed, had some walls knocked out, some doors moved and the furniture has been rearranged. It will be a work in progress for the next few months, but she is ecstatic with the improvements. Pictures will be available soon.
Next rooms that will be created:
Jacquelyn Langford's Office
The Langford's (parents) Living Room and Dining Room
The Anderson's Kitchen, Living Room, and Dining Room
and many more!
