Remember my first Gypsy Trailer Dollhouse
? It was inspired by the 1:1 Magnolia Pearl Airstream trailer
by Robin Brown
. Well I'm doing a second one! This time no kit.
I used 1/8" bass wood for the main frame. For the curved sides and roof I used 1/16" bass wood. And for the window and door trims I used 1/32" bass wood.
Getting those curved windows right is challenging. We're still learning to use the new scroll saw. Everything will be fixed by sanding though! For the wallpaper, so easy! They are all bits of pretty paper. We used a spray glue this time. It seems to work well with less bubbles.
This trailer is 18" long x 7 3/4" wide x 7 3/4" tall(without wheels).
This is the 1/32" thick bass wood. It's very easy to cut. I used a small box cutter.
We sanded all the edges round and painted the whole exterior silver. There are still no trims on the exterior.
The ceiling will be "tin" tiles.
I have a few pieces for the interior. This is a bit of a project for sure! If you are a novice with dollhouses I definitely suggest getting the kit. Kits are such a great way to learn.
Until next time!
Hey Caroline! This is another stunning build from you! You are able to give a touch of magic to everything you make.ReplyDelete
I wanted to thank you for the comment you left on my blog some time ago, looking for me. I tried to answer on your blog but as I was only with my phone, there were times that I couldn't leave a comment in here. I also commented your post on instagram but I don't know if you saw my message.
Anyway, we'll done again....you really are the best at what you do and I always admire the fact that you share all info with no problems!!! Hugs!!
Love your start. Can't wait to see how you decorate it. I've been wanting to make some sort of house on wheels but can't decide what to make yet. This is a great idea for your style!ReplyDelete

This is indeed a project. The trailer is going to very cute. I still have not mastered my scroll saw; it does take practice, but for larger wood cutting projects, it does make them easier.ReplyDelete
I love the way you mix and match your wallpapers Caroline and this interior is Already Very Pretty with a wonderful Springtime feel to it due to the well-chosen varieties of floral patters that you are using. More,... MORE! :DReplyDelete
