Kitchen update!

So our New Hampshire weather went from sunny and early fall-like yesterday to rainy and awfully dreary today. *sigh* I am spending the afternoon with a cup of tea, listening to music, and working on the kitchen of the Glencroft.

Here's what I came up with so far.

As you can see, the paneling is in. :) It's actually stained cardstock (I use Olympic Wood Stain in Early American) and cut into strips (using an X-acto and a ruler on a cutting mat). I glued them in with tacky glue and did one more stain job of the whole thing.

I sprayed shellac on the wallpaper I printed out. (This was fun as I was trying to stand in the doorway on the porch, trying to avoid getting shellac in the house, while also trying to avoid getting wallpaper wet with rain.)

Next, I am going to cut the wallpaper to fit the walls, and then install it. After that, I plan to put the trim in for the windows and doors, and then add the chair rail to cover up the raw edges between the wallpaper and the panels. :) Can't wait to see how this is going to look!

  1. It is all coming together very well. I was a little hesitant about the wallpaper at first but it looks real good with the pannelling. It is still rainly and dismal here too but nice weather to work on minis.
