In the last week or so, work has begun on a Commssion Sale 'Witches Cottage' and I am going to be cheeky and hijack some of my blog posts to show the lovely lady awaiting this cottage how it is progressing! :)
All the basic preparation has been completed and hubby is now at the stage where he has started to apply Art Mache to age the interior walls. In the main downstairs room, to the left, there will be a spindle staircase. On the back wall, you can see the fireplace opening which is designed to be large enough for a AGA cooker or a pile of glowing embers and wood and a hanging cauldron :) To the right of the fireplace, there is a alcove of handmade and 'aged' hardwood shelves... great for potion pots and leather books :)
The walls aren't at the stage for painting and ageing yet, but when they are they will look something like the pic below....
Upstairs, there are 2 good sized rooms and the furthest room will have a corner fireplace.. there's no room to put it in the larger room due to the placing of the doorway!
The exterior of the cottage has been started also and the windows have been stained to age with a dark wood stain. I have given the acrylic window glazing my 'dirty treatment' Well, witches don't have sparkling clean windows, now do they!? ;0)
Hopefully, hubby will get all the interior walls finished today and then he can begin on the exterior, the wooden floors, the roof..... lot's to keep him busy, whilst I go for a haircut.. hee hee!
