The Fairfield dollhouse - Days 47 and 48

Hi, everyone!

I just finished the floors!
I used wood tongue depressors as floor board. It end it up looking great!

Pictures times:

The bathrooms are the same shape so I took just one picture, although the attic bathroom is a little bit bigger

This is the attic floor. It was a pain to align the thing so I could slide it in place....

That's all for today. Tomorrow I'll be sanding and gluing the floors in place. Still not sure if I'll stain/paint or something them.
After Christmas is wallpaper choices... ARGH!
Cheers! and,
Happy Holidays!

The Fairfield dollhouse - Days 43 to 46


Very productive days have passed.
I papered all the ceilings with white 'lightly texture' paper and I'm planning to add a mural on the tower ceiling:
The prototype worked like a dream:

I was planning to do the wood flooring with bamboo sticks but that ended up Fuuuugly! So it was back to the faithful popsicle sticks/tongue depressors.
Although I have many cuts on my fingers (for shame!), I was able to complete 3 rooms today.
The Dining/kitchen area:

The second floor rooms:

I'm going to finish the floor templates for the rest of the house, then it's ceiling mural and the dreadful time choosing wallpaper!
Got to go!
Later and Cheers!!!

The Fairfield dollhouse - Days 41 and 42

Hi, everyone!

I had a constant headache this week so I only worked at the staircases yesterday and today.
It was not perfect but since I'm going to add some carpet (rugs?) on it, I think it end up pretty good!

This is the first-to-second floor staircase:

This is the second-to-third floor staircase (built from scratch with popsicle sticks):

Now, I have to paint it, if I can decide which color, add the tapestry so it can be glued in place... After I decide the wallpaper...

ARGH CHOICES!!!!!!!!!!!
