You can see the wall on the left, I am quite happy with this wall however I f i was to do it over again I would do a niche. The bricks are great and a tad thick, but they used to be a brick kids model the little ones got bored with them so I got it! I still Have a few bricks I might do a half wall against the back with a gate, If i can find a way to incorporate a window, the angled wall will be mirrored tiled and have lattice over top of it.
The floor will be terracotta or stone as you can see I have made some tiles, there on the top of this picture is Some of my clay tools There is a stylus, Syd's tool I got from minikitz and a nail file.
Till next time,

Well I guess it is about time I post any way; I decided to commit some surgery on some of those infamous Michaels hutches, as you can see in the opening piece it is a great way to separate the pieces. The cool thing about this one is when I remove the top piece I have a toy chest I cut off the sides now that I am half done I wish I left on the top, but I will find a way to finish the top.
Any way in the next photo you can see when I cut the hutch, the cabinet I added wood so it will sit on the ledge, I covered this with stir sticks, a base board will finish the bottom, This will be a nice way to display a mini collection,
In the next photo I added a hutch to the back and added a base. I also finished both sides in bead board stir sticks the stairs go at the end of this.
In the next photo you can see it in place the l shaped thingy is a bar,
there will be a glass front with a glass s shelf. This structure will be painted white with a few dark wood accents. That’s what I have been doing among other things. Till next time!!
