Well, I feel I have to get this SW room done ASAP, so I am going to work on it everyday. The picture on the right is a picture of the big door and the gate drying. The middle picture is the handles for the door and the gate. I have painted them black and put so rust patina on all the metal pieces-I don't see that it has made a difference. Later on I will paint a faux rust patina on the metal pieces. The picture on the left is the gate with one hinge and a cross I am going to put on it. Well, back to work.

Well, the base of my adobe house warped because I glued felt on the bottom of it to keep the skewers in to impale the walls on. My husband screwed the 1/4th inch plywood to some 3/4" inch plywood. Now all I have to do is white wash the walls and impale and glue them down. I think I will put the back wall in first, after it is white washed, as it has lights in it. I am putting a fountain on that wall in the patio-I may have to finish the fountain and glue it to the wall before putting it up. I have two projects for tomorrow-yea. Like I have nothing else to do. Well, I should have pictures tomorrow.

Well, I am working on the fountain. I thinned the Mortar Mix I got from HBS- www.miniatures.com , and brushed it on the fountain with a stiff 1/2" flat brush. I think it looks cool. It has to dry-may work on it tomorrow. I have a list of things to do and I really should not be doing things that are not on the list-oh well!!! More later.
