Lets Build a Castle out of Builders Foam...

Still need to blacken the fireplace somewhat, and grunge up the corners but basically I'm done building.

Now to dress it up!
As Chelle said, I brought home enough goodies to fill 1-1/2 castles and originally I thought to make this into a knight Templar castle but as always, I let the building tell me what it should be. I'm allowing myself a week for this.

I'm really happy how the build has turned out! I almost wish I were keeping it but I know from experience that after admiring it for a week it would get relegated to a corner & forgotten. Better to give someone else the enjoyment.


  1. Wow, Karin - that is really something. I'd never have guessed (if I didn't already know) what it was created from. You've made a marvellous job of it - very atmospheric. The arch with the gargoyles is something else!

  2. Enhorabuena te ha quedado maravillosamente real!!!
    Que buen trabajo.
    Feliz fin de semana
