I try to keep my blog free of personal issues but shortly after my last post I unexpectently lost a very close family member who was a great supporter of my miniature work. So it has been hard to get back into blogging. I had begun to work on the second floor of the building that houses the bakery. This is an old bar converted into a coffee shop and cafe. I started with white Hobby Lobby cafe sets by spray painting them with hammered metal texture in bronze and brown. I also painted the base of the bar stools.
