I wanted to share some pictures of the new doll's house. I have so many ideas I'd like to try out and the Laurel seemed perfect for my first attempt.
The window boxes are going to be fun making flowers for.
I decided to use paint instead of doing brick or siding.
My grandaughter April, who just turned three a few days ago, has been so excited too. She's always right there as soon as I start to work on it, offering her help with the "dolly houch", as she calls it. :)
I thought of doing the main part green, and was lucky enough to find some in the boo boos section for only two dollars..how could I resist such a bargin for good quality paint? It's closer to an olive than what appears in these photos.
I like that this house will have a bay window.
This top pic was the first coat of paint on the railings. It's a light taupe, again a boo boo. Yep! I was realy realy lucky!!!
Notice the painted stir stix at the top of this last photo? April painted them while I was working on the second coat of the railings. She did a great job of it, too! Just how I will put them to use I have no idea yet..any suggestions for uses of paint stix? hmm..Furniture perhaps?
