Sleeping Beauty’s Tower WIP #1

W O R K   I N   P R O G R E S S – P O S T 1

One of the items on my 101 List is to complete my Sleeping Beauty’s Tower project. I am very ashamed to say that this is a project I have been meaning to do for about 8 years or maybe more after buying The Gatehouse Kit from Dolls House Emporium.

The Gatehouse Kit

I had to Google an image of the kit as Dolls House Emporium no longer sell the kit on there website.

At various points over the past 8 years, I have made plans, brought items, etc… just not actually got around to doing anything.  I did actually start the base for the tower a while ago (I posted a photo in my “Hello April” post) but thought it was about time to start the tower.

Over the weekend I have been putting the brickwork on the tower. As you can see in the photo below it looks quite realistic.

Tower1

It is brick effect paper I brought off someone on eBay. They printed it on to textured effect wallpaper so it feels bumpy.

Tower2

I think it works really well. I have used this on the outside of the tower and also the lower floor where the arch is. I have also painted the flag stones around the arch to match.

This is as far as I can go at the moment with the outside of the tower as I have to do the interior. The problem I have with the interior is deciding what I have going to do in the main room and then how I am going to do it? At the moment I have a wooden floor and plain walls it needs decoration.

I am hoping to be able to do a bit more over the weekend so will hopefully have some more photo’s for next Tuesday.
