Just a floor.

I guess it is time to reveal that this greenhouse is not going to be a greenhouse any more, althought there are still going to be a few flowers in it.:) This small project's name is "My little pleasure" and soon I will tell you why.:) For now I made a very simple floor for it.

The floor is made of simple wooden cup mats. I cut them into pieces and glued onto the octagonal cardboard. Then I covered the wood with a few layers of brown glass paint. This paint always gives such a nice shine. And that's it.:)

Hope you like it.:)


Czas już chyba powiedzieć, że szklarenka nie będzie już szklarenką, choć niewątpliwie parę roslinek się tam znajdzie. Temu małemu projektowi nadałam nazwę "My little Pleasure". Wkrótce opowiem dlaczego.:) Póki co, pokazuję bardzo prostą podłogę. Jest ona zrobiona z drewnianych podstawek pod szklanki. Przycięłam je do potrzebnej wielkosci i nakleiłam na osmioboczny kartonik. Później pokryłam drewno paroma warstwami brązowej farbki do szkła. Dzięki temu uzyskałam efekt podłogi na wysoki połysk.:)

That floor turned out gorgeous - I would never have thought of using glass paint... I'm really curious now what your little pleasure will be. Normally I would have guessed books and glass jars (LOL).
