I'm pleased with the work I accomplished this week on the street scene, not because it was a lot, but it was something I was hesitant in completing. I had mis-cut the floor around the door opening, and with the floor glued in place, I was apprehensive about getting the floor unglued. It turned out to be a relatively easy task thankfully, and I was able to insert a piece and I added a wood threshold to cover the insert. I stained it to match the wood work around the window. I still have to add window trim, even though it won't be seen from the outside.
I tapered the edge of the threshold board. Wouldn't want any of the bookstore customers tripping on their way out the door!
I am leaving the accessorizing of the two ledges on each side of the door until I add the moldings on the outside of the windows.
I also got to add the Open/Closed sign. It's a laser made sign, but the wire was too short and I added a piece of cord to get it at the perfect height.
I am so proud to finally give the bookstore a name. I drafted it up in Microsoft Word, so I had limited fonts available to me, but I am proud of the end product. The shops name, as I mentioned a couple of posts ago, is named in honour of my Great Great Grandfather, Ephriam, I decided to drop his second name, Titus, started to sound too much like a disease! So it's called Ephriam's Vintage Books, Manuscripts and Maps. I think I will shrink a picture of the old guy and place it in the store! I only have one picture since he was born in 1855 and died in 1936, I'm pleased I have that one.
I still have to add lighting, it was very dark inside once I placed everything's place!
I've removed the vine for this picture, but I am starting to really like the overall look!
Thanks again for everyone's comments. It's very much appreciated.
Until the next time......
