Remember the five dollar garage sale dollhouse I bought a couple weeks ago? Here it is fresh out of my car.
Here it is with a new exterior paint job and a couple additions. My first thought was to leave the black roof and trim and paint the siding a medium gray which would have been nice for a haunted house. However, I didn't have any gray paint on hand; I did have two shades of purple, and bright yellow that I could tone down with white. What do you think?
I bought the eagle and door handles new-- under two bucks total.
You might think there is not much progress on the inside, but I got off most of the wallpaper which was no easy task. Someone glued it to bare wood-- never a good idea. I'm now painting the ceilings.
I also bought one of these dollhouse furniture kits. Pretty nifty if you have a child to spot the teeny holes for you. It's all snap-apart plastic that is glued here and there. Looks nice when completed.
I'm enjoying working on this house outside, but I think those days are numbered!
Thanks for viewing.
