I feel like I’ve been posting FAR too many dollhouse pictures on Instagram, so am giving it a break to blog a bit!
Everything’s coming along nicely. I currently am half-way through painting the exterior trim, and am almost done with the floor on the lower storey. This is a picture from two days ago; I added a second coat of the stain yesterday and am going to put the polyurethane coat on soon (probably the weekend as we have Billy Collins plans tonight and symphony plans tomorrow…).
I made a little cushion for the window box too – omg I love that color of green so much.
Yesterday, I worked up a little prototype of the bookshelves that I want to line one of the upstairs rooms with. I was at work and had no glue, so used tape …
It turned out so well (I mean, the design, not the execution) that I measured and cut new popsicle sticks for a legit shelf that I put together once I got home. A quick note first – I found some printable 1:12 “leather bound” books on some miniatures website yesterday and threw these “books” together – aren’t they the cutest thing?!
Anyway. So yesterday when I got home, I stained the wood for the shelf and then glued it together. It’s PERFECT. OMG it is the cutest thing I have EVER made.
Sooooo pretty. I’m going to make like several more too, and some half size cases. And probably some odd-sized ones too to fit into the little nooks upstairs. Not explaining well but will post pictures whenever I actually make it that far. I haven’t done any work on the upstairs yet so still have a ways to go…..
This is what the house currently looks like. Can’t wait to remove the tape to see how it REALLY looks…..
