Beacon Hill Classroom Progress

Happy New Year, everyone! I know I should be posting on resolutions or reflecting back on this year, but the light was coming through so beautifully, I couldn't resist taking these pictures. :)

This is the main classroom in the Beacon Hill Girls' School. In the foreground is a small teaching area (what subject, I don't know yet!)with a standing chalkboard on the right that I'll show in more detail later. In the background, you can see a hint of the traditional American schoolhouse desks sitting on some checkboard patterned paper. That's my way of trying out different flooring ideas.

The top picture also shows my crown moulding shortcut. After wasting many pieces trying to cut the proper angle, I finally decided to cheat and make the corners square cut and put a section of wood block in the corner. A fancy finial will come later. You decide: crafty or cheating?

Again, blog friends, Happy New Year! I hope that 2012 is full of everything that is good and lovely for you and all your loved ones!!

  4. Happy New Year! :D I think the corner blocks for the crown molding is brilliant. When I first discovered that trick, I immediately thought it was not only a great solution for dollhouses that are invariably not square enough for good molding cuts but even more decorative than plain old molding. I plan to use them, too!

  5. The corner molding is different and I have never seen this done before. But, because it's a Victorian house, I can see it. I think that once it's all patched up and painted, it will be nice in a sort of fanciful way. I love your blackboard and the old fashioned desks. I used to sit at a desk like that. It brings back memories just looking at them.

  6. Fantasticos trabajos!!!
    Feliz Año 2012, para tí tambien!!!
    Te deseo lo mejor!!!
    Besos de las Malu´s.
