Watson Mill - circle library, part 7

by brae  

Continuing work on the circle library.  I finished gluing the circle library boards and backing sheets, cut some paper shims for behind the mirror, removed the protective covering and pushed the circle in place.

The circle can be taken out to clean or replace the mirror as needed.

After getting the walls up and the wallpaper in, I could address the final trims.  I added a fancy routed trim for the top to cover the plain brace there.  I added a piece of baseboard I believe I got from Debora when she was cleaning out some full scale supplies.  I sanded the ends to curve toward the side trims since the baseboard was a little too thick for the space.  After adding the final side trim, it was all done!  Just need to fill it.

And, for final reference, here is the original again.  I skipped the long curved trim for lack of space.  Besides, I like mine as is.  :]

And, now for your dose of cute.  Here's Jasper in his new kitty bed.  :D  As many of you with cats know, they tend to like the box more than what comes in it.  As I was unpacking the plush house, he was all eager to hop in the big cardboard box.  He was just about to when I set the plush house on the ground off to the side.  He made a beeline right into the plush house.  Success!  I even had to carry him upstairs in it (it has a handle), because he refused to come out.

I love how the circle library looks. All that hard work is really paying off.

And Jasper looks so content and cozy.

One of my decided the soft carrier was a good house and used to hang out in it. Until we had to take her to the vet in it. Then she didn’t like it as much.

Cats like miniatures spaces and I am happy forJasper that he is diggin’ his new digs! :D
Meanwhile your circle library is simply lovely Brae, and I wonder if a “mini Jasper” would find his favorite spot in the Mill, somewhere in it? &#59;D

OMG! This is going to look so amazing when you fill it! Imagine a little me pulling at your apron, agony on my face, asking “how long ’till it’s ready mommy? Please, please hurry!". ;O)
Jasper’s mommy is a kind and wonderful lady. And he’s sooooo handsome!

The circle library looks Awesome!!! Only you would be able to pull that off in miniature! I am sure the books you add will only make it more divine! What a great feature in this tiny house! As for Jasper’s new digs…. he knows a good thing when he sees it! (Why don’t they make those for people?)

Even though I really enjoy the big reveal of your secret projects, I think I enjoy seeing it come together bit by bit even more. I like the process behind projects.

Thanks so much! :>>

I will try to keep some photos back for big reveals, like not showing the decorated rooms until the end. :yes:

Very well done with your circular structure. It’s so original and I love the painstaking care you take to get it just right. It’s going to look fab filled with books.

Jasper looks right at home in his new bed.
