A wooden floor for the library  
I customized the floor of the Buffy library. I wanted it to be dark wood. I was not a fan of the glaring white plus I want to look it less Buffy and more general library.
But in case I ever want to sell it as original (never!) I did not glue it, just tape cardboard to it. I also plan to make the walls dark brown. Much better, eh?

That is so cool! :D

Thank you! It was a fairly easy make, but the result is stunning! I also often paint pink Barbie stuff, and just a little color makes all the difference.

Much better, yes! :D

Thank you! I already took some pictures today with Alfred, which will be revealed on Thursday. Him being on the ladder in a recent episode, getting a book from the shelf was the reason I got this. And it was worth every single one of those 142 GBP. I am in love! I want to shrink myself and read all the books LOL

Since you are the one with the knowledge: Was the original in the show really that white, with red stripes? I guess the red is like the carpet on the stairs, but the layout always struck me as odd.

I had to go check a video clip, because I didn't remember it being white, and looks like it does have this "pale interior with a darker edge" thing going on, although the colors are definitely not that bright or contrasting.

You can see the floor briefly at the beginning here:

Or periodically and more at length here (but the clip is spoilery and probably confusing for someone not familiar with the show):

White is an odd choice, I feel, for both a high school library and a TV show set... But maybe they needed it to not bee too dark?

Thank you for the clips! It's nice to see the real thing, after having studied the model in such lengths. I see now where it differs, where they simplified it. I bet that was not easy to do, to keep the spirit.

You should look at this guy's work. He replied to my tweet. He made his own library before the set came out and it looks simply amazing:


Scroll down the whole thread, there is a second reply with more pictures, and another one where he also made a place called Magic Box, which I don't know but also looks great! Enjoy!

Oh cool! They did a really great job!

Yes, indeed! I know how long I fiddled with my Gotham fence, and that was rather simple compared to this. It must have taken a long time. He said he sold the library and gave the other for auctioning for a charity. So he doesn't even have them anymore. I never could give away something I put so much work into.

Definitely much better!
Antjedieastra on May 6th, 2018 07:39 am (UTC)
Yes! Everyone agrees on this. Thanks to Hamsterwoman's comment above I also now have seen videos of the real library in the Buffy show.

LOL Thanks!
Sorry for the anonymous comment, I hadn't realized LJ had logged me out. If you want to delete it and me write it again, let me know.

It's so anonymous I can't see it...

No notification about a spam post with links? After I had hit post I got notified that it went to your spam folder. You probably have to free it from there.
Okay, I'll do it again. Stay tuned!

I like the "wood" floor much better. Good job.
Antjedieastra on May 2nd, 2018 08:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you! So far everyone agrees. Makes me wonder why they chose the one they did for the Buffy series.

Awesome, I want in there! :)
Antjedieastra on May 2nd, 2018 08:11 pm (UTC)
I knew you would like it! Let's shrink ourselves, I wouldn't come out for months.

Also, have you seen my librarian? I should put her into that set! https://dieastra.livejournal.com/284226.html
Aletheia Felineaaletheiafelinea on May 2nd, 2018 10:17 pm (UTC)
And those books, too! :D
Antjedieastra on May 5th, 2018 07:45 am (UTC)
Yes, good idea! But sadly they cannot stand, as they are glued together in a heap. I also have this stack of books that apparently comes from a Simpson figure. It's also one big heap:

Holy crap that's amazing! You're so talented but I say that all the time :). Love libraries!
