Shabby Streamside Studio Dollhouse 3

I have started the exterior finish of the house.
I'm using concrete on the exterior. This makes the dollhouses very strong and shipping worthy. If I weren't shipping I would skip this step.
While the concrete is still wet I apply the wainscoting. This is a cardboard box that I stripped the top layer off of to reveal the ridges. Now I have a super strong bond between the house wood, concrete and wainscoting.
I also added the porch floor and the little front door step.
I painted the roof green so that when I add the shingles no unfinished wood will show through.
Starting to look like something you've seen before? LOL!

  3. I repeat words from Terri : You always amaze me and inspire me! With the support of your perfect examples, I started a new construction project! No more ready-made boxes, collecting the wall by myself! I'm afraid, but look at your work and do it. My motto now: Remember Caroline, and just do it!

    Hugs, Katy

  8. What a stunning idea Caroline, using the cardboard.
    It looks great ( like all your houses), and what a good idea to paint the roof before adding the shingles.
    And YES you ''pestering woman'' :).
    I did the voting again today, so I think your sister is going to win !!
