I haven’t had one minute to devote to Doll Houses lately.
But a few weeks ago, when there was a bit of a slower pace around here. I snapped a few pictures of some of the progress taking place in the TUDOR style doll house.
I thought I’d show you a few of them. I told you about the shopping trip I’d made to Dollar Tree and the great finds they had there—you can read ~Crazy for my New Hobby ~here
I transformed the tub with a white paint pen and silver paint pen. However, after I painted the claw feet that were ‘gold’ with the silver paint pen…the feet transformed to a bronze-ish color. I like it!
The tub is streaked and looks very aged—not pristine, as though it were a brand new tub. I like it so much now, it sort of has a ‘vintage –slipper- tub –look’ to it.
I also took some time out with Lil’ Bree
and we used our inspiration photo to spread some paint around.
We are NOT finished with the exterior—but it’s coming along nicely.
Her favorite color is green; a girl after my own heart! We are both pleased with the color (naturally, I didn’t snap a picture of the green finish!)
I also used a tongue depressor and created a replacement window ledge. It will get some paint later.(you may notice, the house did get a complete paint job—just no picture) Really, that is how it is when you paint with a 5 year old!
I STILL haven’t glued the stair rails in yet…
Still working out the ‘slant’ of the hand rail. I did glue the floor in place and stain it… have I shown that to you ? I can’t remember!
Just looking at the photos in my file—I can see,I HAVE NOT! Seeing the floor here in the above picture reminds me that I have actually glued that floor down and stained it. But I can’t for the life of me find the pictures.
Hmmm… well, I guess I can save all that for next time,then!
Til next time, Be Blessed!
