The Shabby Chic Dollhouse: "Tin" Tiles

I got my "tin tiles" done today.  Some of these are in the fireplace of the inspiration cottage: "A Tiny Victorian Cottage".
I started with a sturdy cardboard and made a simple design with hot glue.
I painted all of it with thick white paint.



Then I added a touch of silver paint here and there..

I did the same hot glue treatment on the fireplace. Just a few lines and dots. Then, I crackled the fireplace. It really looks shabby chic now!

    1. Hi Deb! I just used a tiny bit more hot glue. You can also use an all purpose glue.

  7. In the event that your rooftop should be fixed promptly, you should be ready to discover your rooftop fix project worker charging you a premium for the work. This is justifiable, on the grounds that very much like finishing any work rapidly, in any event, getting a rooftop fixed rapidly makes certain to set you back additional. Roof repair costs
