Lundby Stockholm

I will never be able to restore this used Lundby Stockholm to its original condition, but will clean, repair and fix as much as possible. It is missing some railings and needs some flooring and wallpaper replaced.

 

Right now I envision making an apartment on the top floor. The bathroom may just be a door to an implied bathroom that goes off the back. Thinking I might put small stores and small coffee/café on the lower floors. Perhaps one of the stores will specialize in vinyl records, another would be book store. As over time, I should be able to make the shelving, records and books to fill these stores.

Great ideas! I have a Tomy dollhouse (early 1980s) and it's fun to restore it to "vintage" condition. I don't have space for a Lundby house but if I did, I'd want it to be the Tomy's next door neighbor. :) (Actually, the kitchen pieces you have upstairs are Tomy pieces.)

 

For vinyl records, I posted a how-to on my website a while back: http://www.emilymorganti.com/blog/?p=5472

 

That's for half scale but you could do the same for the Lundby house, just use a 3/4" punch instead of a 1/2" punch.

I was given Lundby bathroom set by my SIL.  until I posted a picture on FB.  it appears that the blue bathroom is a rare item.  I have seen the green ones and pink ones on ebay, but still no blue.  I just have to decide what to do with it

Emily, I had the Tomy kitchen pieces in my stash. I think they fit OK in the Lundby, but, if I every come across the Lundby pieces at a bargain price I may switch them out.

Love, the vinyl records and albums you have made. At first, I lazily thought I would put empty album covers in the store, but now after reading your blog, I may just try my hand at making the records also.

I do have a set of metal punches (in many sizes) that my husband bought me when I decided to make paper plates for the Fairfield. The hardest part for me is getting the punch centered over the print.

I really appreciate that you took the time to share the link to your blog. Thank you so much.

I made my records slightly larger than the size of the punch, so I didn't have to line up the punch exactly. You still need to center the record inside the punch or the label in the middle will look off, but if you hold the punch upside-down you'll see the record through the hole in the bottom, so you can eyeball it to make sure the label's more or less centered. Since it's not an intricate design like a plate I think it's less obvious if the record is slightly off center.

Even if it is (not-so) slightly off center, it could be glued into an album cover partially sticking out and therefore still useable.

 

I love this house! I think the idea of the stores underneath is so fun! I look forward to watching it.

I found this same Lundby model from the 70's in December.  Actually was in about the same shape but with a gash on the bottom floor roof.  That has been fixed - now onto the fun parts.  I too am using Tomy, Lundby, misc. makers and  homemade furnishings.  I'm keeping the room layout very traditional since I got the table tennis top with the house and had a little horse and the Lunby 001 car that need places to reside.
