Dollhouse Chronicles

This week I tackled painting the exterior of the doll house. As a reminder, this is what it looked like before.

And here is after.

I decided that I only wanted to use paint I had on hand. I vastly underestimated how long this would take. But I’m pleased now that it is done.

I did some porch repairs and I hung up this little porch swing.

And found a park bench for the other porch.

I love these little shingles in the gable!

For the shingles, I watered down black craft paint to use as stain.

I removed the plastic window panes for painting so I need to put those back in yet.

I loved the original color scheme, but I needed to make a few repairs and knew I’d never find paint to match well enough.

Have a great day!

    I agree with Roseanne! A welcome mat, a knocker on the front door and hanging flower baskets on the porch would be adorable. I’m always amazed at your findings such as the porch swing and bench. They’re perfect.

    Hi Katy! Love seeing these chronicles each week. The porches look inviting although you’ll have to whip up a small welcome mat and door hanging. For the seasons, don’t you think? Ooh, this is just so much fun. ~smile~ Roseanne
