My Altered House Progress Report

Well it's taking a lot longer to do that I thought I would and staining the pages has been has been a labour of love, but I am making progress The house is almost covered in paper hen centre area I think I will leave brown stained but maybe darken out with black soot as well?? not sure yet

but as you can see its almost there. I decided to put little feet onto it, well remember my bargain bag of stuff from the charity shop for a £1 well there were some wooden beads in it that will fit the part well, ,m thinking six should do it. So a bit of kitchen sponge and walnt stain and they should look much better
Now around the top and side section I going to put some lace I like this lace
but its too bright in in present form so maybe its time to make a coffee mix with water and put said lace in to soak and see what result I get, ? Ok coffee making time...to be continued ...

Love it, the lace (bunting), in my opinion looks great, but it's your masterpiece. Can wait for the next installment.
