A Rough Cut of The Anderson's Remodeled Home
This is yesterday's post. Blogger was down when I went tried to post it. I roughed out what the Anderson's permanent home will look like.
The furniture will all probably stay, but the living room table and all accessories are subject to change. I am just getting a feel for it all. There may be wallpaper and/or new curtains. I put in the window to the left, so that one will stay. It overlooks my backyard. There is a small piece of wall behind it that will be cut away. The window on the right will probably be covered with foamcore to make a wall.
There will be a sofa table. Not sure that the little desk will stay. There is a wicker basket underneath with Ciana's toys.
Leslie is about to tackle some hair before work. She just needs to get that red ribbon changed out. I have to do a little work to this leather chair. It is one of my rejected pieces from a couple of years ago. I managed to sew the seat cushion together backwards. Once I fix a few things, it will be fine for this family.
The door on the left goes nowhere. The bathroom is hidden behind there. It will remain an illusion. If you recall, I originally had their bedroom in this area. I started making them another bedroom, but it may be donated to someone else, like Roderick, or the Redmonds.
The great room overlooks the kitchen and dining room.
The view into the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen island will be completely redone. It is currently made out of 2 dressers that I need for someone's bedroom. I will probably make one from wood. The counter tops will probably be marbled contact paper made of black/white. You know the one.
I will add a window scene and a curtain. I roughed out the counter area to the left. This will probably also be made of wood. I will try to find/make a piece that has storage underneath. She needs a place for dishes. Of course the walls will be fixed.
There will be an area rug under the dining table. I will also try to add a nice floral centerpiece. I can't wait to create some food that will be served here. Since they will use it for everyday use as well, I won't dress it up with dishes and a table cloth until they entertain. And they will be entertaining. I think Leslie is thinking about inviting Rod and Danielle to dinner. There will be a small patio area. I don't have a lot of space out back, although I could borrow a little space from the table just beyond. I may add a small grill and patio chairs.
I still have a ton of work to do, but this home is ready to use for videos. It will probably be the next scene for a quick photostory . Danielle's house is just to the left. The Taylor's home is just to the right. I can see Antoinette popping up at the patio door for some morning coffee and a chat on the weekends. I started working on the Taylor home yesterday, too. I probably would have finished putting their kitchen and family room back together, but I can't put my hands on their sofa. It's not with the other neatly stored furniture. Hmmm.
I am off to post the blog for today. Make sure you take a look. It will feature limbe doll sandals.
