MCM Dollhouse Chronicles

There has been progress on my little mid mod dollhouse! I finally got around to painting the exterior.

And I made and painted a little for since it didn’t come with one.

Oops! The screws were a wee bit long! I’ll figure out how to fix that later. It also needs a door knob.

No matter how much I tape, I still end up with touch up to do.

I was going to use an asphalt shingle or two to give the effect of a gravel type roof. But you can’t buy just one or two.

So I masked off most of it and spray painted with flat black.

It’s an odd little home made house. You can see how high the windows are. The entire roof comes off to access the inside. And it is very heavy. I think it is quite charming with its quirks.

I like the giant plant on the porch. I need to figure out how to paint/finish the porch floor and make some patio furniture. I’d also like to add some miniature breeze block at each end. And I still have work to do inside.

Have a great day!

    Hi Katy! I love this series – I had to wait until I had time to really read today’s update. I love the colors you chose, and the big plant, and the black roof, and . . . well everything. It is a little odd house but someone took the time to build it, and you found the time to make it a home. It’s cute. ~smile~ Roseanne

    If you go by a place where they are shingling a roof you might stop and ask them for a few. They always have some left over. Love your little houses. Popsicle sticks might make good porch furniture.
