The Library at 'Le Château'

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend.  Here in Malta it's really hot. I think the last few days have been the hottest days of this year.  I can't recall having this kind of weather but not surprised considering that it's August. 

Today I am really excited to share with you the final room that I am working on, at my 'Le Chateau'. I have to say the last room was the most challenging but at the end I got it right.  I finally managed to design the Library which is next to Study room in the attic.

Having slanting walls from every side of the room with a staircase in the way was not easy at all. I started off by designing the back wall which holds the bookcase and the central doors leading to another room. 


Once the back wall was done I focused on the fire place wall which was quite tricky to finish. 


I spent the weekend working on miniature books to fill in the library.  I lost count of how many books I made, but they definitely fitted in perfectly and were worth the trouble. 


I printed and hand painted two busts statues one of Maria Antoinette and the other of Louis XIV to add to the bookcase.


I have also printed two ceiling roses and painted them to match the room.


Finally I worked on the well and the railings of the staircase. 



Here is the finished room which is all ready to be furnished and decorated with accessories.



I worked on the lights and I was trilled that I could see the whole project lit. There is still so much to do but I am so pleased with it so far.


I hope you like what I have shared with you today. I can't wait to finish this project. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates on this project.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,


Rebecca xxx
