First step was to glue all the pieces that had broken off back on. By the way, Crazy Glue, very helpful, also works quickly on skin as well as plastic. Luckily I'm used to dealing with Crazy Glue more than I am Plexiglas so I didn't quite glue my fingers together. It actually went pretty well. Better than the frame.
I bought some wood for the frame of the lid since the Plexiglas was cracked and not sturdy enough to drill and have hinged on its own. Unfortunately Home Depot cannot make miter cuts (ie forty five degree angles) so its going a little bit less well than I'd hoped. But still, progress is progress and I'll take what I can get.
In the mean time I've been ordering things the dollhouse needs so that bit by bit I'll accumulate all of the trims and finishings for it. This week I ordered doors for all the rooms except the dining room and living room. Those will have double width entries so I don't want to use doors for them, unless I get really ambitious and get a couple of sets of double doors.
So here are my doors, they come with inner and outer trim so they'll be perfect for the bedrooms, library and kitchen.
|Nice and simple. I like them pretty well.|
|I think it will look very nice on the front door of the house.|
|Pretty flowers. Yes I have a simple mind.|
|Pretty & Shiny|
And that's what I did this week. A little shopping and a little hard work. A lot of sawdust in my kitchen and wood glue smeared on plastic. But progress...
So that's not too bad right?
