Pirate Room, In Progress
I had hoped to get the room more complete before I showed it off. The remaining details are taking longer than expected since we're working on a shoestring budget. I'm going to felt a parrot. Also in the works: Glass floats, charts, more netting, a cutlass, lanterns, a masthead, some rope, etc. We're also going to tin foil some padding under the treasure to make the chest look full. The bottles were found by Matt as a child. Mr. Bones is now holding one.
I had been working up an Arabian Nights concept for the bedroom, but Matt wanted to go Gothic. Alia (she's so brilliant!) came up with a Knights Templar compromise: It blends Middle Eastern design motifs with a Byzantine aesthetic.
