One of the things that remain unfinished

Standard

and there’s lots of them around

here and there

As usual, under the main heading of “I don’t really know what I’m doing but what the heck” I tend to leave jobs that tie my head in knots to the point of bursting. These occur, despite planning and all mental visuals, when my skills just don’t come up to the wishes and I can’t force them the way I’d like.  I brood on them, think them through some more and eventually make out a work-around and go for it.  They can involve vast compromise, often it’s more about learning to do something new as quickly as possible and at other times I find trying out or buying in some other materials really helps.

Images of 4th wall area, Arnolfini bedroom.
You can see the bulk of the moulding put in place at top and bottom of the wall area that hold the sliding section that closes the room off

The one under the spotlight today is the closing doorway and outer wall of the Arnolfini bedroom which has been left blandly pink on the outside and white on the inside for more than a year or so.

 

Items

Previously

What’s wrong

Proposed

4th wall closing the room – plain sheet of wood

 

1.    White painted card inner

2.    Pink painted card outer

1.    Inner décor needed

2.    Beams needed

1.    Whip up a pattern on computer

2.    Beams to be added as suitable

Problematic

1.   Existing sliders

Too bulky: this is the side of the building and if it comes out too far it will never get out of the room. Anything fixed in place has to be a little less chunky Remove clunky moulding and add newly acquired, finer pieces

This is a lighter weight moulding that is imprinted with a design

and here it is sitting well within the boundaries of the main support beams (unlike the previous lot which I’ve hacked off!)

On the inside

Meanwhile

The ‘miniNatur’ greenery arrived today and I played with that for a while

And in this wonderful pre-festive period I’ve still not shaken off a virus I caught three week’s ago, so if I’m rambling more than usual that’s my excuse.
