The past 3 days have been filled with more plaster, paint, furniture and a bit of wallpaper for Lulu's Maison.
I started by putting the upstairs bedroom together. First I trimmed the
windows. Then I plastered the walls. A couple of you asked why do do
this step. I plaster the walls to cover up imperfections, tape wire and
to make the dollhouse stronger for travel. The plaster bonds the
corners together. It's just an added measure to prepare for shipping.
I also put my accent wallpaper on one wall. It's a pink paper with cream tiny dots. And I laid down the wood floor.
I white washed the floor. This is just 1/2 water 1/2 paint to allow the wood grain to show.
I made a bed for Lulu's doll. The doll is a little bigger than 1" scale so I adjusted all the furniture accordingly.
A grey painted bed with roses is a must for a shabby chic bedroom!
Here's the bed all dressed up. I'm not going to glue down the bedding on this one. I'm sure Lulu will want to tuck in her doll.
I also made a lace chair for the downstairs.
Now I'm moving on to the exterior!
This is coming along beautifully! These are my favorite colors!!!!!ReplyDelete

It looks great so far. I love the very beautiful bed and the way you painted and dressed it. I'm very grateful for all your explanations and tutorials.ReplyDelete
I must admit I had wondered about the plaster step. Thanks for answering the question. I just love the bed. It just begs for a little doll to be tucked in there so I am glad the bedding isn't glued down.ReplyDelete
