Teeny Weeny Shabby Streamside Studio 1/4th scale

I bought Santa's Village kit. It's a set of 6 little 1/4" scale houses. I thought I would do something simple trying this scale for the first time. NAHHHHH!
I saw the bake shop and immediately realized it could easily turn into the shabby streamside studio! I wasn't sure if I could do this. But I'm now well on my way so I'll share what I've done so far.
I cut out all the new windows and door.
I carved out the downstairs floor with a box cutter type knife to get the wood floor.
I decided to put a light in there. I just taped the wires and switch while I'm working on this.
I also did the "tin" ceiling. I used my tiny glue gun to make the designs.
This is the fireplace mantle and front door.
I plastered the interior and sculpted in the wainscoting. I also hinged in the front door. That was really hard! Who knew such tiny nails would be so much trouble.
OK you can say it! I've lost my mind with this project. I just get carried away.

The real Shabby Streamside Studio belongs to Sandy Foster. You can see it on her beautiful blog My Shabby Streamside Studio.

  7. Yes, your attention to detail is definately on the OCD side...but what a great side to be on!

    Many glue gun burns on your fingers?

    Looking forward to seeing your next batch of insanely detailed photos!

  8. Hi Caroline! You never cease to amaze me! You challenge yourself more and more with each project! I can't wait to see more of what you do with it! :-)

  9. You hinged the front door? Is there anything you can't do? You are just so amazing!

  10. OMGeeeee! Now that is so tiny! Is it possible it will be cuter than the original? I can't wait to see this one done!!!! =)

    I've been sick in bed for the past 10 days so I'm sure by the time I finish catching up with everyone's blogs this house will be long finished. I won't skip ahead to find out though. I'll torture myself and let the excitement =)

  11. I really enjoyed all of these photos when I was looking at this post last night. I was looking at each one and appreciate your showing us every step along the way. You do such beautiful, intricate work. This house is just phenomenal!
