Stone Oven Chimeny - covered.

    Thought I'd grab an axe and "retry" covering the stone oven chimney :rant2: with one of the new beds (old ones didn't cover it completely)....

    First attempt -


    So, I started thinking platforms for the bed and ended up with this...


    As for color - it's dyed with the natural metal dye (as are the elven chests and the studded tunic).

    Edit to add: The platform is the 1/4 wall section. Had it been the 1/2 wall, could have sunk the gargish bed down more and turned it into a waterbed.

    I did this in my xmas keep that I put in the xmas contest. I used the decorative boxes, and the elven bed.

    I did this one last night using the unmade bed, and the ornate elven chest

    I do like the way you did yours very nicely done.

    Very nice. I originally wanted to try with the ornate chests (like you did)...went all through removing the roof, adding teleporters - customizing. Got the ornate chest on gazas and split it, went to customize - Doh!!!! :wall:

    That chimney is my nemesis!!!

    metal colored dyes come from staining

    and now y'all need to get busy on a way to put one of those ovens on the first floor of a classic home ;)

    Love the platform bed, Ashyn...but you need a stool next to the bed so people can reach it. :D

    You forget, very tall toons live in my houses with their over-height kitchen counters. There's a trampoline hidden in the corner to just bounce in for all you short toons (not that I'm planning a slumber party in the near future...).

    Actually, I was going to break some stairs and have a ritzy set of steps up to it but that would have just created another beast (sunken den/rooms - and I've allready gone that route).

    love it - the room looks very mediteranean with just the water view behind it!

    In addition to this, if you don't want a bland goza stairway, flax functions as stairs in the same way.
