|See how you're supposed to use the gallon jug? This gets messy pretty quick.|
|They look a lot darker here than they turned out.|
|See what I mean about the wood tone?|
But while I was waiting for them to dry I decided I'd work on some more trim for the dollhouse. I did a lot of painting on Saturday. I mean a lot.
|The blue looks really bright here. It's not as bright in person.|
|See, the bright blue isn't so bright here. And I painted the tops of my fence posts|
Remember last week how I was wondering what color to paint the railings? I talked it over with Rita and we looked at the original picture of the dollhouse. So I've decided to paint the spindles white and the railings blue. I'll do the same with the doors and windows, the bulk of the frames will be white with a little blue trim.
So here I've painted the spindles white. I also painted the posts of my fence posts white as well.
|See? Nice and white. I'll probably need to give them another coat though.|
There are these cute little corbels (I think that's the word) that go under the eaves of the house and should match the trim. I painted those as well. That was tricky because they're so small, I got a lot of paint on my fingers.
|The green background doesn't help but the little blue things are going to go on the house.|
The last thing I did for the house was to attach the bay walls with hinges. Now I just need to figure out how to place the magnet closer.
|Nice and shiny. Might paint over those, might not.|
In the mean time I need to read up on electrical systems. If I can install a ceiling fan (or three) in my actual house I should be able to deal with electric lights in a dollhouse, right?
Wow, don't all of you agree with me at once... sheesh.
Wish me luck. And if in a few weeks my hair looks a lot curlier than usual you'll know that things they did not go smooth.
