Jasper Inlet Light - it has a nice ring to it

by brae  

Shame on me for doubting; the Woodline Victorian House kit is growing on me.  After a night's sleep and some thinking about the lighthouse, I think it would be a rather nice project.  I had a look through my nautical image file, too.

Here are links to a beautiful bed from House and Home and guest beds from Phoebe Howard.  This interesting photo from House Beautiful would be an interesting and less traditional way to decorate a dining room.  This page from Completely Coastal has so many great options for nautical decorating.

Recreating this staircase would be a challenge, but it would be worth the effort, especially if it had a reading nook like this one from Southern Living.

Yeah, there would be a lot of bashing, but I can now see this...

...as this.  Three chimneys! :D

It's still going to have to wait quite a long time...many houses in front of it.  So, who knows.  ;D  But, from the looks of my inspiration photos, I'm going to need a five gallon bucket of white paint.

Well, I guess I can return all the Super Secret Super Spy stuff I got. I was all ready to intercept the package and sneak it back into Brae’s house. :D ANd, um, YES, I second, third and down the line to infinity, April’s motion. :D

These photos are so beautiful and inspiring, packed with original details! No wonder you want to have a try with the lighthouse!
Do you make mental lists of your projects before going to sleep too? My mind is full of paint, wallpapers and the like before I start counting sheep!

I love those photos. This would be a gem of a project once completed.

I love the rope twists in the staircase and the boat table. Though I would no doubt walk into the pointy end on a regular basis if I owned it =0)

Oh, yes, I constantly have lists and ideas in my head! :)) I think that boat bar needs a warning light. &#59;D

Ooh, those are great, Jeannette! :yes:

I have toured many, many lighthouses and keeper’s houses. It will be a project that will truly speak to me, I am certain.

Don’t know how I missed this post until now?
What an awesome project!
Maybe it could move up to the top of your list? After the Spring Fling, of course. I can’t WAIT to see what you are doing with that one!

Hope you have a great weekend!
Blessings,
Kathi

:D It is a bit of a pushy project - I keep running into ideas for it. But, I think you’ll all like the next smaller build. :yes:

For a split second I thought the photos of the nautical themed house from was a 1:12 you did in the past (my coffee hadn’t kicked in yet). I was going to lay down and die. Then I figured it out. What a great and fun project that will be! Imagination run wild!

:)) That’s quite a compliment that you think I could pull that off! I am looking forward to this build.

Love the inspiration photos and your target photo. This is exactly what I do, collect images in separate folders for future builds.

I came to the post late from Greg’s post on the GL forum. :)

I save stuff all the time even if I don’t ever plan to build anything like it - it’s sometimes just nice to browse for creative inspiration in general. :yes:
