One night, a couple of weeks back, I was sick and up all night. While I was sitting on the couch, watching Martha Stewart, this huge-I MEAN HUGE-idea came to me. I have an odd layout in my faimly room, and the Chateau Chanticleer being on the only window wall did not help. The photos don't show it very well-use your imagination. AND I know I look like a hoarder, but all that stuff goes in the dollhouse. All I have to do is put on the doors and roof and the Chateau will be ready to finish (it should take 6 to 12 more months). Any way, these are the BEFORE pictures.
The terra cotta leather chairs use to be on the right.
I am so excited we did this. I can not believe there is sooooo much stuff in building a mini house. Anyway, you can certainly see how crowded it was. The base the house sets on is 3 ft X 6 ft. So below are the after pictures. I love it.
Now the doll-house is in the useless corner and the chairs fill out the seating area. Now all I have to do is get the doll house finished. I really can not believe we did this. And I really can not believe I did not think of it sooner. Before I had a swing arm wall lamp between the chairs. I don't need that now, so I think I am going to put the lamp to the right of the dollhouse so that corner is not so dark. There is going to be a conservatory on the right side of the house and it will need to be illuminated.
