The Glen House Apartment (part 4)
The best part of this "Glen House", is the bare bones I have to work with. No scrapping old wall papers, and lifting old flooring. This is a photo of it as it was. Then I started working on the little apartment.
The room was painted white, and the floor painted a lovely shade of yellow ochre. The windows have a black valance. The two doors are fake, one leads into the bathroom, and the one next to the window kind of lines up with the one I will put on the front of the building.
The apartment has a replica of a rug made by a German artist, Gunta Stolzi (1897-1983). It was in an art magazine, I cut out, and cut up into sizes that would work better in the room. The furniture is Glens', and I repainted and added some black lines with tiny felt pillows. The coffee table has high heels painted on the legs. I would like to show you a before picture of the living room furniture.
I used white acrylic paint, and a black marker on these pieces. The littlest table is called a Tu-Tu table. The coffee table is a high heeled classic table.
The furniture can be moved around, and reconfigured at the home owners delight. This photo shows a hood over the stove, that I have since removed, tiny malfunction. It blocked the window off.
The residents will be eating their meals in front of the TV, as there is no room for a dining set. The large bedroom upstairs makes up for that little inconvenience. Next time, a view from the bedroom!
Thanks for stopping in today! :^) Audrey
