  1. I'll have to try that, havanaholly. I managed to accidentally delete the first picture from the hosting site. :cry::cry::cry:

    westPaces, I got the dollhouse for $50 on facebook too! Although I almost wish I bought it new. It's been a mess getting apart and it's missing a piece. Not to mention that paint color is too much for me. 


  2. The previous picture is what the previous owner painted it. It is way too loud for me!

     

    This is what it was looking like when I finally got it all apart.

    This is what it is looking like now! I got this desk for $40 from Facebook just for this project!

    I am currently working on making hardwood floors. I am making them out of vinyl planks! I got the idea from this:

    Has anyone else tried making floors from vinyl planks?

     


  3. Thanks for all the advice! I think this person used wood glue to join the pieces, I had tried prying gently, but didn’t want to break anything. I tried a hair dryer, but maybe it needed more time!

    Thanks for the suggestions for the primer and that tool looks awesome havanaholly. 

    I am using my iPhone so I will have to upload some of the pics to my computer. 

    Mans Marcy I found tons of really cool designs, mine were just tiny dowels, but some of the ones I found know were really ornate!

     

    Thanks again! If you think of anything else let me know!


  4. Hello everyone! As the title states I am new to this, but I have just purchased a partially finished Victoria’s Farmhouse. It’s basically a shell. 

    However, I have lots of questions!

    •What tools should I get and invest in? Are there ones you wish you had when you were starting or one you can’t live with out? 

    •The dollhouse is missing a piece! What should I do, is there a way to get a replacement? 

    •The walls were not glued flush. There are gaps in a couple of places and the piece that is missing wouldn’t set flush if I had it because the roof would but up against it. There is one that is not glued on one side. How can I fix these?

    •The entire outside is pairing a deep blue with bright trim. What is the best way to paint over it. I want white trim with a lighter exterior color. 

    •All the dowels and railing pieces are painted as well. Would it be best to sand and repaint or buy new dowels. There are over 150 pieces that are painted, mostly dowels. 

    Any help or resources would be appreciated!

    I am trying to figure out how to post pictures but they are all to big. Any help there would be great as well!

     

    Thanks,
