The paintwork of the room is finish. I was originally thinking about painting the old floor. But it was full of bumps and big cracks. I sometimes loose tiny miniature parts on the floor, I don't want it to fall down and disappear into a crack in the floor!!! So I found a quite reasonable prised faux parquet floor.
We have been working the whole weekend to lay down the new the floor. It was not as easy as we were thinking at first..... Not one angle was straight, and then there was the heavy old oven that had to be lifted up. Lifted up on it's to front legs, the risk of the whole oven rolling over was big. It weighs several hundred kilos!

The red "things" are the lifting devices!

Kind of hard to adapt the floor after this wall!!

Notice the pipe on the top of the oven is off!!! We need to have a big trolley, lift the oven up, back it away from the wall, adjust the thing at the top and roll the oven on to the pipe!!!! Puhh..
But it's a nice several hundred years old oven with lots of nice details;

Notice the figure in the door; it's for letting the air come into the oven and make sure a correct combustion!

So, almost done, just some painting behind the old skirting we removed. Then i have to put on new skirting and the room is complete!
On Wednesday we are picking up some furniture from the flat. The bed, sofa and hopefully my work table and the french house!!!!
Then it´s soon easter and my sweet daughter Victoria is comming!!

Så flott arbeidsrom du får! Vi pusset opp vår datters rom i fjor høst, også med hvitmalt panel og nytt parkettgulv og både hun og jeg ble veldig fornøyd. Nydelig ovn!

Synnoves my sweet,

I think I missed this lovely post!!! How does that happen......the things that you find and how you display them is so wonderful! HOw is YOUR new home?

Thank you always for visiting my must get to know Patricia Cabrera's work; her ability to capture nature and make it almost more realistic is captivating! Oh! Go and visit my team blog NOWHERE and see what I did with paper and a mini theatre...

Have a wonderful day! Anita

Oh my friend, you came!!!

Oh I had such a blast....Penny from Angelsdoor has a little mouse named Bebe and one name Joli which she sculpted. I loved them so that I drew them out doing outrageous things and before I knew it, I made this little circus!!! Then there is the Dutchess....and all the other clever people!

I draw very rapidly, so it is not a long process to make these. I am so glad you came. There are more tickets, so bring a friend! :)

Dear Synnove. This room is fantastic. I thought at first glance that it was your little French dollhouse then after reading I realized that it was a real one. The stove is wonderful.... is it in working condition? Mine is a magestic oven from 1920's and i use all winter months... my family and friends says that I make the best pizza in my wood stove oven.... I think is because of teh heat!*grin*
When we first brought the stove in, it took 4 men to carry inside.... I KNOW what you mean about the is HEAVY!
Have a wonderful day!Smiles~

Julianna sa...

Patricia Cabrera sa...

Dear Synnove~
I had to laugh about your rug.... I woudl love to have a real one but again I am too emotional about the animal...sigh.... I should say that because I have cow hides and deer mounts at my living room!*grin*

I would never be so brave as to install my own floor. You did a beautiful job and I'm glad you chose a natural wood floor rather than painting it. It's going to be a beautiful room.
