Here's a quick view of the playroom. The stick on the right side is a dowel to prop up the roof. This room is in the attic portion of the house, on the far right. Lottie's room is just to the left. I've been trying to go through this room recently, and pull out some of the toys. I'm a bit addicted to miniature toys! The fireplace and corner cupboard are half scale, but I liked that they were child sized. I'm toying with the idea of making this room more of a school room, but I haven't quite decided yet. The fireplace originally had a HORRID brick surround. I seached online for antique tiles that would work in the room, printed them out, varnished them and glued them on. That little change helped the firepleace so much! I also replaced the rather boring gold metal fireplace screen with a little scrap screen. I have no idea if scrap fireplace screens were ever made in real life, but I like the interest it gives.
