Tordino – Painting & varnishing

20th May 2018 – A busy day! My father continued painting the den of the ship, while my mother varnished the old cabin in the hold. I finished some more exposition tables and built seven IKEA cupboards. The ship models are now stored away while I do the last conversion in the Library Room. There will be a permanent exposition on Belgian maritime heritage.

The LED spot lights are also mounted. Nearly there!

Tordino – Shopping

16th May 2018 – Just went shopping to Ikea. It is the quickest way to get light fittings, bulbs and cheap furniture to put behind the desks. If I have to make these storage units by myself, it would cost me at least triple the price in materials….

Tordino – Kitchen and hatches

15th May 2018 – The kitchen and bedroom on the old accommodation are nearly finished. I want it to look as traditional as possible with the right decoration and furniture. It took me some time, but it starts to look good!

Later that evening, I rebuilt the fake den for the old hatches. It was moved several times and got damaged.
