The SculleryHi everyone,
I hope you are all well. I just want to thank Ilona for explaining how to enlarge my pictures on the blog, I am sooo daft, I really didn't know you could click and they would enlarge, anyway, thank you again Ilona. Also, I want to take the opportunity to welcome Giac as my second follower. Ilona won't be lonely anymore :)
Before I continue, I need help!!! What's new?
I have been trying to get a list of the blogs I'm following onto my blog. The title is there, but I just can't seem to get the list of blogs visible. I have edited it to include them but they just don't seem to want to appear. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Now, finally, I hope you enjoy the next instalment of Fox Manor, namely the Scullery, where a fair amount of work takes place!
My vision for here, was that it would be multi-functional. I wanted an area for the servants to eat, a small pantry area and this is where the washing up would take place for the cutlery and crockery used 'upstairs'. The sink in the kitchen, on the other hand, would have been used for the cooking and preparation of the food.
I had some wallpaper in my super-stash! It is a household paintable type with a raised pattern on it, I think it looks like a roughly plastered wall. I made the little dividing wall for the pantry by cutting and gluing two pieces of foamboard together, then I papered it with the 'plaster' paper. I marked the back wall and ceiling and glued the wall in. I have shelves in the pantry to the right of it, and they will help to stabilise the little structure.
This is my completed scullery and the final room in the basement :( I have to say that the basement was very much a learning curve but thoroughly enjoyable to do; and I must eat my words, as I thought the kitchen and scullery would be boring and plain, but I really got a lot of enjoyment tracking down some wonderfully made miniatures for them.
Again, thank you so much for taking time to look at my blog, and I really hope you enjoyed it.
All the best
PS I'll be slowing down a bit now, as I have RL decorating to do. My daughter's moving into her house and needs Mama Bear to help with decorating. Let me at it.....I'm getting a real buzz from transforming a room into something....well, more :) Miniature or life size, I'm not really fussy :)
