98% Finished

The only thing left is the outside of the room boxes to cover the wires from the lights. I am really happy with the results and I hope my parents like them.

First my mother's. This room box features a piano on top of an oriental carpet and a window with a meadow scene outside. I really like the light on the ceiling. I put a great Federal style ceiling medallion which my husband had to help me with to allow the lighting fixture to place flat against. There was a great detail in the center, but to put the light there would not work, so he flattened it with a dremel.

The one for my father features two pictures that are on his latest CD, which I talked about before. You can see them in the picture. I took this one without the flash as it showed the lighting better. The walls are tan which I did because I wanted a more masculine look to the room.

In both pictures you can hopefully see the music scores on the piano bench and peeking up out of the file cabinet drawer. I searched a while to find the graphics for these covers, and since they are behind "glass" no one will know they do not open.

Well that's it. The wood panels on the top and sides will cover the wires from the lighting.
