Phew the Floor is done at last!!





Well Ive done it, this time without having a hissy fit and tearing it all up!
Today I finished painting the oven and then mixed up another batch of terracotta paint to paint the floor. First I grouted any gaps with a lighter shade , then sponged on the paint. Used a tiny slither of sponge to add the black to the border tiles and some of the main tiles and then added another sponging of a different shade on top, and some white to look like the tiles have wearing, and some flour on the floor.

Quite pleased with both the oven and floor and so now just have to wait for the roof tiles and flooring which I have on order to get on to the next step.
Just popped afew bits in to take the photo, need to really dress the room now, dolls and all!

Kate what a difference. The Floor has come out really well. All the bits and bobs have really set the whole room off. Looking forward to seeing Mrs Lovett and Sweeney in their new setting..
