Our Dollhouse Project.
Just after we moved into our new house, I was offered the opportunity to purchase a dollhouse kit to make a dollhouse from the ground up. We already have 2 other dollhouses that we'll be restoring, once our art studio is finished and we have the room to do some major reconstruction. I jumped at the chance to tackle this project, a challenging one, as I'm new to the dollhouse world as an adult. I had several dollhouses as child but none had to be built or restored. To start this from a kit was a challenge I was ready for and couldn't wait to start. The build part was frustrating at times, as all the pieces wouldn't always fit. I'd have to rework and rework, cutting and gluing. But in the end, it came together. The next step is to prime and get the dollhouse ready for all the trimwork, then time to decorate.
On this long weekend, full of rain and tons of
strong winds, dh captured me finishing up the trim.
All done, now on to the priming and painting.
The blue is lovely but too dark for my taste.
A view of the inside. So many rooms!
I didn't like that there were some gaps in the
corners, so I used drywall compound to fill them in.
The attic. This little spot should be fun to decorate.
Tomorrow's post will show the priming that we
finished up tonight, on this rainy and stormy day.
How was your long weekend Sunday?
Did you work on any projects this weekend?
