My Washington D.C., a sneak peak into the book!

I finally, finally finished painting the White House interior! Just showing off and celebrating…..!!!!

2nd floor: State Dining Room, Red Room, Blue Room, Green Room, East Room
1st floor: Oval Office, (moved over from the West Wing), Map Room, Diplomatic Reception Room, China Room,  and Vermeil Room (it houses a collection of gold plated pieces)
