I finished most of the bedroom the other day. I added baseboards and window trim and a chair rail. I still have to trim out the area by the stairs and add crown molding, but here it is.
Remember the clapboard section that the previous owner had somehow inserted into the bedroom wall? If you look to the left, you’ll see that brick is now covering up that clapboard. Several blogging friends told me about a method to make bricks, but I had already ordered this molded plastic and it ended up working beautifully. I painted it white.
It really feels like an attic room that has been converted to a bedroom – which is exactly what I was going for.
My friend Patti, of Crystal Rose Cottage has often mentioned a dollhouse that she made many years ago. These posts of mine have started her thinking about it again. Today, she posted photos of her unbelievably charming dollhouse and she has given me permission to share them with you.
Oh my. Isn’t it adorable? I love the paint color and the windows upstairs. And that great porch.
I want those windows! Oh wait, there are bay windows, too! And lots of nooks and crannies. Seriously, isn’t it lovely? Patti is going to work on it again. Go pay her a visit and read the story behind her dollhouse.
Send me photos of your dollhouse. I’d love to share them with everyone.
