My Medieval 1:12 scale fireplace

Yesterday I assembled the fireplace, and painted it. I used a base coat of natural titanium (a buff colour) then added layers of greys, finally stippling the surface with umber and black to resemble stone. I applied scrapbook stickers to resemble the tiles of my inspiration photo and installed both fireplace and chimney breast. This morning, this is how it looks:





I am really pleased with the way my miniature medieval fireplace turned out! It looks like stone and has exactly the feel I was hoping for. I love this photo, taken from the left hand door -- it looks perfect to me, and I have a wonderful sense of accomplishment :)
