Update Half Scale Country Dollhouse

A few more pix of the Half Scale House I've been working on. Scroll down to previous post for other photos. (See  house Trimmed -  Lights -  First pix/pantry/hutch)

Here's the front with all stone. I have a sun face to put in the center. The stone has to be fixed in some spots and lines filled in. It also has shutters and window boxes.

Starting stone on the house.  The front is finished and drying. Will add another pic later. (This looks terrible but it is looking better now.)

Sink and wall shelf in kitchen.The sink is a kit from Petite Properties in the UK. I also have a vintage stove kit to make. (She has some great kits made from mount card like mat board.)

Kitchen curtains. I wanted an older vintage feel to the room.

Just wanted to show the TV I found on ebay. It's 1 3/4 inches high and has a tiny magnet in back.
 I'm hoping to glue a TV show photo on the front.

Miniatures Monday - Half Scale House Trimmed!

Moving right along in the Half Scale (Doll)House

Got some trim in and what a difference color makes! (See the previous photos)


First up - windows in!  Have to work on paper clay stone on front and stucco on sides next.

(Finally! I don't understand why some pix I can rotate offline and then when posted they are sideways. It does that on certain pix on Facebook, too. Found this site and it worked to rotate them again so they stay the right way when posted -LunaPic free online photo rotate)  

Well....  first floor - the kitchen. Love the floor and the green trim added something! Hanging wall cabinet next. Working on curtains. I have a cute leaf pattern that has an old-fashioned feel.

Second floor - combined room - bedroom left and sitting room on right. Added false door on back to attic.

The staircase railing is made from cutting blade parts from a wooden Chinese fan. The floor is individual wood strips I took out of an older dollhouse. Have to put the staircase in after I finish putting curtains on the bottom living room windows and putting door in. 

The attic partially shown below will be all wood. The lights are painted metal sconce-like beads from Michaels. The wood strips are from those old wood calendars. Just found another one with wider strips at the flea market for a dollar! 

Will put in the floor/ceiling next and then have to put the ceiling lights in before installing wood strips for the third floor. The attic area will be a kid's bedroom/playroom and a painting studio for the grandmother.
