My painting time this weekend began not with miniature painting but 1:1 painting in Real Life. This activity would require an all day repainting of our formal living room. Since this space is rarely utilized, we decided to convert the space into a library. Yes! This will free some space in the game room and get all of the books together in one, central, well-lit space.
Having received three book cabinets late in the week, first task for me was to repaint the room. Cleaning and taping was accomplished Thursday night and painting began in earnest Friday morning. With 12 foot ceilings, at times, I was seemingly performing a high wire act balancing myself, and brush on the top of the ladder. No injuries were incurred in the painting of the room! Painting and clean-up wrapped up about eight hours later.
In the photo, the size of the cabinets may be deceptive. Each of these cabinets is 6-1/2 feet tall by 4-1/2 feet wide. That is a lot of linear footage for books! Now to transfer all of the books from the downstairs game room up to the main floor is another sizable undertaking. Left to accomplish is table and chair selections for the library.
With that Real Life painting diversion under my belt, the painting desk shows activity on the smaller scale projects.
At present, a number of projects are seeing activity. Two units of Japanese for the Samurai Battles' project can be seen in the foreground. Sitting on the clipboard on the right are 15mm WWII British and 28mm Spanish. In the center, are two battalions of 15mm Sardinian infantry for the 1859 project.
Quite busy here this weekend!
