Getting Started

Posted on May 26th, 2008 by Ruth Salton

Building the stairsCreating Space For Stairs I also cut a section from the ground floor ceiling to create the stairwell and cut in small channels for the light cables. I then glued the sides and back section to the base.

With the ground floor ceiling in position, but not glued, I made the stairs from basswood by working out the gradient and carefully measuring and gluing each individual step. These were Online Pokies finally painted, covered in a marble effect paper and fitted with carpet.

On the walls I used a combination of thin corrugated card that I’d painted black, gold and black card and marble effect paper, which I also used for the floor. I fixed these into position with strong double-sided tape instead of glue to prevent buckling.

Come back next week for an update.
