Parquet and Panelling...

Continuing with the little building renovation here is the upstairs room now.
    
I got a lot of inspiration from Lea Frisoni's book - "Le Grand Livre de la Maison Miniature".
I LOVE how the wood panelling turned out.
     
This was the result when I attempted to make the parquet flooring as in the book. I soon realised I didn't have the patience to figure out the instructions properly  (I like things to happen fast!) so I just made it up as I went. Although it's nowhere near perfect I was surprised as anyone and very pleased at how well it turned out!
    
I have filled this little building with some very special minis from a wonderful friend.
If we get some sunshine this week I'll take some pics to show you.
