The other side of the bathroom door...the hidden hallway

Here's the hallway I've created at the other end of the old bathroom.
I bought the wallpaper with tiny chairs on it when I went to visit Kim in America.

(Yes, I know the window trim is falling off in some of the pics. But if I stop to take new pics this will never get posted!) 
You only get a little glimpse of the linen cupboard through the bathroom door.

 I've always wanted to build a linen cupboard and the hallway seemed the perfect space to create one.
The doorway beside the cupboard is the entrance to the stairs up to the third level.

 The linen cupboard won't really be able to be seen unless you look through the window from the outside...and even then you need to pull the window out to see it properly - which is why the window trim keeps falling off!

Still room to add a few more things in there!
I just have a 'thing' for pictures on glass at the moment. 
When I found the chair picture on the Graphics Fairy site I couldn't resist adding it to the glass to go with the wallpaper.

Sabiha made the window cleaning supplies and I made the tin basket to put them in. 
Sylvia made the wooden box.

Maybe it's still a bit too tidy...yes, definitely room for more in there!

A Vintage Lavabo for the Farmhouse Bathroom!

What do you do when you see something (in real life) that you have no hope of ever owning...
well, if you're make it in miniature!
And that's why I had to make an antique lavabo for the farmhouse bathroom.

Oh, how I'd love a real one! But I've never seen one here in NZ.

And here's a little peek through into the hallway behind the bathroom...there's more to see around the corner!

Thank you to all the wonderful people who took time to leave such lovely comments on the bathroom post. I'm thrilled that so many of you like it!
