Marie Antoinette Secret Folie Barn Dollhouse: Interior Walls

This is my panel wall for Marie Antoinette's barn. I made it the same way I did the "tin" tiles for the shabby chic house.  First, I measured and drew on the pattern. Real simple stuff... just leaves and dots. I used my tiny glue gun from Walmart(you know those small ones that cost a couple of dollars). I sometimes use my professional glue gun, but they both work the same! Follow your patterns with the gun and do lots of twirling to get those glue strings cut. I like to keep it neat. Then I painted with my cream and highlighted the  design with color.

I was going to print out a cake picture. But after wasting too much time looking for the perfect image, I painted my own. The gold frame is metal. I picked it up at a miniature store for $1. I should have taken more!

I decided to put up a mural. This is that famous Fragonard painting. I just love the colors and shading. I printed the image several times, including flipped images so I could match the colors.

I also put the wood floor in. Just little craft sticks cut up at different lengths.
