For the hall with the staircase, I wanted new floors with a more interesting design. I took as a model the paper floor in the bedroom:
I used small lolly sticks, staining half of them and laying into the pattern, glued to a piece of card. This is about a third of the surface I needed to cover.
When I had finished the floor, I needed to fit it into the room and with the staircase.I had to remove the mock door on the side and then put it back.
a bit of an oil lamp. The chairs are from ebay, and the little sideboard on the left was on sale at Maple Street, which is a very dangerous place close to where I live. All the bric-a-brac on the sideboard are from thrift shops and flea markets. Somebody gave me the carpet - otherwise I cut them from souvenir purses. The ornate mirror on the right is a photo frame. I made all the other picture frames. The grandfather clock on the landing is from a flea market. The maid is an ethnic souvenir doll for whom I made new clothes. The cat is one of the numerous cats that hide here and there in this house. It's a tortoiseshell, like the cat we used to have.
