I’m using Kiwi Scuff Cover in white to stain the interior wood floors. This is one coat. I wish this kind of applicator was available for all stains! The planks are my beloved Rustic Clapboard Siding Strips from HBS/miniatures.com.
Here it is trimmed.
And again the next morning, with a third application of Scuff Cover, before final weighting to dry flat.
I love the light this morning, with a break in the clouds between storms. (Pacifica just declared an official state of emergency from all the big wave damage to our sea walls and cliffs :(
I’m using my gruzzy pot of gesso as mortar and plaster for the brick walls. This is the first coat. I expect I’ll finish with very light sanding and a wash of mildly warmer white.
And, yay for me!
My first ever lighting wiring plan. Big learns ahead.

You’re on your way to being a master electrician! :D
Haha, Brae. You are one of my hero mentors in this field. I had so much trepidation and resistance! I expect it to be awkward :)
Looking good already :D
Mine is still in the box.
Oh Keli, thank you! I’m in such a tizzwaz to get stuff done in the present break between work projects and family events. I’m eagerly awaiting my second kit for critical components… depending on when that arrives, it might too have to sit in its box.
I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Any visions yet?
I’d like to try the Kiwi on some plank flooring, but I’d like to know if it takes long to dry and if the shoe polish smell dissipates. (I have terrible allergies.) I’m impressed with your plans for lighting – I shall watch closely and learn!
BW, I’m pretty happy with the Kiwi. Dries quickly, and little to no volatiles. I did three light coats over two days, and just sanded it down to reveal the wood color. It’s less a stain in that it’s not deeply penetrating into the wood, but has a nice chalky buildup.
I’m excited about finally surrendering to lighting. One of Kris Compas’s tutorials really helped spell it out for me, in her marvelous way.
Thank you for the link! Very informative and ‘user friendly’.
