The oval on the left is attached to scotch tape so I don't lose any of the parts. I plan to glue the parts together and fill in the void spots with caulk.
The two little wallshelves on the far left will be put in the top and bottom area of the oval. I have mud men to put on them. The shelves are too tall for the space, so I am cutting off the bottom of the shelf. It is REALLY hard. If I use a bigger saw the resin will pop appart in the wrong place.
Next process is paint the resin and gule to fireplace backing. Then I will put up the electric tape, wallpaper and lastly the backing and fireplace. It seems it never ends.

Here is the fireplace back painted to match the fireplace. I found two pieces of molding to put on either side of the back and painted them to match. Now if I could quit being SOOOO LAZY, I could get this room almost finished. I think the next thing I am going to do is put the rattan mat on the ceiling-that is going to be difficult.

The board will be in the center of the back wall with the fireplace in front of it. I can't wait for you all to see how I finish it-secret!!!

Another road block is I am waiting for sconces and lights to arrive. I could be sick as a dog, and still work on the Chateau if I had all the parts.
Going to the Dallas Mini Show this weekend-if you see me, stop and say HI!

After Mother's Day, my hubby and I are going to lay the house on it's back on the kitchen table and put the doors on the house. After that we will put the house in it's permanent place on the platform. There is a conservatory (not yet made) on the right side and a two story add-on on the left side. I saw a way to really jazz up the conservatory in a Mini Mag (forgive me, I forgot which one) and the add on is a kitchen (chicken/rooster theme) and 2nd floor bathroom. At this point, I would like to SING the praises of Real Good Toys (the birthplace of my dollhouse). They have always been there to help.
Pinky and Blue Boy. They will look great. I bought them on Ebay from velveetasuzee. I have bought tons of pictures from them, and love them all.
velveetasuzee in black to hang in the hallway. I saw a wall with ton of pictures on it and loved it. I think it was Harry Potter.
Well, that's all for now.

This is the dining room which is basically finished. I have not done anything so suttle before-can't wait to get the furniture in.
This is the furniture for the bedroom with Bespaq Bird and Mountain Design. It is an old design and I love it.
This is the paper I am going to use after I white wash it. I am working on a Hub on http://www.hubpages.com/ on how to white wash the wall paper, but it is not finished yet. I saw it done in Magnificent Miniatures and loved it. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Hi to all my followers and I'm sorry there were no pictures-just thoughts.

I was like a woman possessed tonight-I had to finish the basics of the library. The orange dots (there are three down the center and two across the back) are for hanging lights and the electricity to all of them works-pat on the back. I did not notice they were out of line-it does not look like that in person. The ceiling is more cream. The book cases need to be detailed and filled with books, then glue to the walls-after the front doors are in place (see the hinge on the right) on the dollhouse. I also have to put up molding-later. Next, I am starting on the dining room.
I was going through a box I keep all the lights, wallpaper, accessories, etc in, and to my shock I found two more book cases and a ton of books. I do not think I will have to worry about filling the shelves with books any more. I also found this toile wall paper that is not usable. The design is hugh. I might could cut out some of the scenes and put molding around it. I hate it and don't think I will use it. I have some small print toile some where-I will look tomorrow.
PS: I went and looked at the orange dots and they were out of line-I fixed them. All is well in the Chateau.
