Behind my project shophouse are two Thai "Houses of Spirits" which can be seen everywhere in Thailand. House spirits live there and protect the house. Thai people worship them everyday with incense and flowers or food. My spirits are very friendly. A glimpse of my garden behind!
The room will be a study in the early XXth century.
I got the fireplace from the London Dollhouse Festival in May. I painted it in a grey marble.
I also got the streetlamp from there. So many gifted artist. I was really impressed by Orsi from Hungary. The quality of her work is just amazing, so is her blog. This is what gave me the idea of starting this blog.
I made the mirror and the decoration above because the wall above the chimney looked very empty.
Upstairs will be a bedroom of a maid, or something like that.

I still have no idea about what kind of shop will be downstairs. Il looks like a funeral home right home, right?
a French roof window called "oeil de boeuf"
As the sidewall looked a bit dull, I painted a commercial for an old French Aperitif, Dubo...Dubon...Dubonnet.

I used acrylic paintings and I am quite happy with the result.
The box is now made from10mm plywood.
I have now returned from France with the shophouse in my luggage. Everything has made it. I carried the facade with me in the aircraft.
I have now painted the shopfront in dark grey and I have aged the wall on the first floor.
