  1. Boarder wallpaper paste in a tub from HD or Lowe’s.
  2. I’m always concerned about older kits. You never know what conditions they’ve been stored in. Damp basement, humid attic, behind a smokers sofa....
  3. Welcome. All of my exterior attempts have been short lived due to weather conditions. Even pressure treated wood has failed for me. I like the plexiglass idea. I would cover it with either premixed sanded grout if you want a stucco affect or the new “As Seen on TV” Flex Paste, which you could shape.
  4. I generally strip the entire house of windows, trim and wallpaper. Then I take the house outside, give it a good cleaning and spray paint the entire house with Kilz primer. A clean slate helps with my creativity. In my case, I’ve always purchased new windows And sometimes changed the openings so pulling the old ones off was not a problem.
  5. Nancy’s has been gone for about 7 years. The Toy Box in Cocoa Beach is a wonderful shop and is part of the cruise line favorites since it’s located in a tourist village located just a few miles from the port.
  6. Barbara Fales previous owner of The Dollhouse Corner in Delray Beach sadly passed away on Saturday. I don’t have any other details. It was before I became an active miniaturists that I would peruse her shop and marvel at all the miniature vignettes, dollhouses and other assorted items filling her glass display cases. Unfortunately, the Delray Beach location’s rent became outrageously expensive so she retired and closed the business about 10 ? years ago. I knew her from our mini group, Les Petits of South Florida in Boca Raton. She was one of the sweetest women I’ve ever met. Always a kind wor
  7. I always loved Attending the real show but this is really quite convenient and saves you thousands in airfare. Although, we couldn’t even get into the country right now. Great idea! This is the best time to order the Real hand cut slate for your roof. I used to pay $200 for 1000 tiles, currently it’s about $150 for 1,000. http://www.miniaturebricks.com/roofing/slate
  8. I need to see a photo of the house. I personally cover all edges with channel trim. It give it a nice finished look.
  9. I’d use a tool like the one below to cut a slit into the center wall where the floor meets the wall and feed the wire through the slit. https://www.amazon.com/BD200MTB-2-5-Amp-Variable-Speed-Oscillating-Multi-Tool/dp/B005AZI12O
  10. Amazing house. I’ll find a great tapewire video for you.
  11. Today, I ventured out to TJMaxx and HomeGoods. You’d think it was the holiday season. I don’t think I would have done this in my home county nor could I because it’s still shutdown. But in Vero there have only been a handful of cases so they are testing the waters. For the most part people where keeping their distance. It felt good to browse again.
  12. Go with the LED string lights.
  13. Just peel the Mylar back. I’ve used my xacto blade to peel and cut it away.
