    Entry

    From the album: Willowcrest - Beauty on a Budget

    The Entry... pretty much finished (I did a few more little trim pieces after I took this photo plus paint touch-up). It is pretty much inaccessible at this point, but I can still photograph it from the drawing room, so once the side wall is glued in, I'll take a few more photos!
  2. Has anyone built something using these windows? I coveted them for a long time and finally got some, but I'm surprised at how very big they are. They seem more suited to a Barbie house ... They look like a more elaborate style than what's on the Willowcrest. Does anyone have a project to share? Thank you!
  3. Hi! I'm sorry for double posting but yet I had no luck. I still don't have the schematics drawings for my willowcrest ;_; I mailed Greenleaf 2 times for this issue, called them yesterday (probably the gentleman freaked out with the spaniard way of raise the voice when you want to be understood even if you are not bothered in any way :lol:), but still don't have it (busy times?) One user was kind enough to contact me but for any reason (maybe time, big pdf or so) she couldn't get it to me Pleeeeease can someone send it to me? I could find the instructions or w

  5. Just wanted to introduce myself here! When I was 10, I got a Willowcrest Kit for Christmas. My dad was supposed to help me put it together... It is still in the box almost 30 years later. I’m looking forward to putting it together with my daughters. We’re going for a subtly haunted look.
  6. Hello Everyone, I live in south Florida and I have a few kits still in boxes I would like to sell so I can make room for smaller scales. I have the following kits: Emerson Row Lisa's Cottage ( I have three of these, 2 sealed in box, one I opened the box but never took it out) Brimble's Mercantile Willowcrest Fantasy Craft - Craftsman Porch & Cottage (bought loose kit on ebay but never built) Local pickup preferred. Thanks, Jennybee
  7. Feeling creative. When is getting out of hand.... getting out of hand?

    From the album: Willowcrest - Beauty on a Budget

    I wasn't in love with the railings that came with the staircase, so I made some changes... wainscot made from cardboard.
  9. I have been checking the Greenleaf store frequently and was pleasantly surprised just now. The Willowcrest kit is back in stock!
  10. Couldn't tell you how old I was when I got it, but I know it was for Christmas... maybe in the late 80's or early 90's. My father put it together with my mothers assistance. They painted the outside and let me do what I wanted with the inside. Children and paint, oh my! I remember being the envy of all of the neighborhood girls. We spent hours upon hours sitting at my tea time table playing with that dollhouse. It was very well loved! As I grew up though, I spent less and less time with it, until it eventually ended up out in the storage barn. And it stayed there until I left
  11. I've been saving the Willowcrest in my HBS shopping cart, waiting for the 40% coupon on 1 April. So, I'm browsing the site, added some things to my cart and see the most terrifying line ever: THIS ITEM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM THE MANUFACTURER. WHAT?????? So I rush over to GL online store and see they still have it, but since I don't want to take any chances, I've *gulp* bought it at full price. I've collected a lot of chinoiserie furniture and accessories for my Asian lady, no way am I letting this house get away from me I hope they don't discontinue it, it
  12. At myminiaturemenagerie.blogspot.com is a beautiful willowcrest that I had never seen before. She had some inventive ways to add a little extra space . When you go to the site on the left is list of her builds. The Willowcrest is 120 Copper Court.
  13. My 1st dollhouse will be the Willowcrest, which I am making to serve as a card box for my wedding reception. I'm very excited to begin this project, and since I don't quite have enough posts here for my own blog just yet, I have created a wordpress blog: http://miladyestates.wordpress.com/2013/04/03/welcome/ Please feel free to stop by and say "Hi" and leave any inspirational comments or tips you want.
  14. Today was a fun filled mini day! i got lots of new goodies! First off i went over to my moms tonight and she suprised me with a mini gift! She bought me a mini sushi set off ebay from hong kong! i love it! here is a pic of it inside my willowcrest kitchen Then when I got home I was happy to see that my HBS package arrived!!! I got my Chrysnbon Stove kit which will be going in the willowcrest kitchen. since the kitchen is so small i plan to put the stove where the tile fireplace is. I havent decided this 100 percent yet. but if i like it there i will just take the mantel
  15. I honestly think I've lost my mind.. it seems like i will "finish" for the day.. then 30 mins later I go back to my work bench and start working more :wub: I did alot of work. This morning I started of staining the rest of the interior window frames and attached the windows the the house. Next I turned the house around and did some work on the 3rd floor. As I mentioned in another blog entry, I lost the piece that closes up the 2nd story stair. SO i had to make my own.. i think it looks ok what do you think? Then I decided to do a little more detail work to the arch... This took
  16. Well shes almost finished I set her aside on the dresser tonight to start the Emerson row. Here are a few pics of her :wub:
  17. Well tonight my Willowcrest was calling me.. So I gently put my WO aside and starting playing around with her.. seeing what I wanted to "work" on tonight :wub: SO I decided I needed to get my butt in gear with that roof! ive been avoiding it for too long! So I started out giving 2 coats of paint... Tomorrow I will add the brick work to the chimney and I will re paint the white trim.. After that I decided to start staining.!!! I spent about an hour and 30 mins doing one full side and one side of the front. I think its coming out really nice. In the pics it looks a little
  18. Hello again Well I dont feel like typing much so this blog will mostly be pictures I did ALOT of touch up and detail work on the exterior tonight and last night. Last night I finished all the shingle staining. Today I attached trims and did painting. On monday my HBS order should be here. Then I can finally attach the front door. Im waiting on my 2 crystal door knobs and my mail slo and the building numberst. So hopefully monday night I will be able to complete the front of the house Here is a pic before i painted the strip of blue on the trim.. and here it is all painted
  19. Well I spent probably at least 5 hours total working on my willowcrest today. And I am So happy with its progress. I finished the roof shingles. they are DONE! Thank goodness too because they were driving me insaine! After that I side panled the back side of the house. Which was very simple because it was a very small area to panel! I did some sanding, and then on to the painting! Of course that didnt take to long either and sure enough when a few hours it was done! All the trim is painted and put on.. So yep, thats about it so far. I probably wont work on
  20. Wow i have done ALOT to my house since my last blog. I dont even know where to start. Well I finished painting all the blue on the exterior of the house. And I have painted almost all the ext white trim. .. Next was I shingled the entire left side of the roof and the front left side of the roof... I used some wood filler to close up the gap on the left side roof in between the shingles. im hoping it turns out ok with it. Next up I worked on the 2nd story stairs. Now somehow in the middle of our move in July I have lost about 4 or 5 pieces to my willowcrest, including
  21. Adding color to a dollhouse really makes a hudge difference on the whole “morale” of the project. During the middle of last week I painted the front exterior and did some trim painting… Having side paneling in my opinion really adds a completely different aspect and “feel” for the house itself and I am so glad to took the time to do it… It really has paid off now. I think one of my favorite features of this house is the Top Arch, wow is she a beauty! It just brings so much character to the front of the house. Im not sure if I mentioned the color I went with in a prevous blog but I w
  22. Let’s see… the topic today will be???? Side paneling! Yes I know again right? As you know this is the first house I have ever side paneled and you can definitely see the first area I started paneling is completely different from the rest! But that’s ok it looks ok I think. And its just one side of the house. I found the best way to do an even paneling is once a layer is glued down take a piece of panel and line it up where you want the text one to go. Then I would just trace a thin pencil line at the bottom of it so when its time to glue I know exactly where it needs to go! I only have one sec
  23. Now that my beautiful new work station is built I have the building bug in full force!! I’ve done a lot of work since the last time I updated this blog. Since I’m at work I don’t have access to the pics right now, but if you take a peak at my gallery or even my web shots you can see them for now I am almost completely done with the side paneling of the house! This is the first time I’ve ever side paneled and let me tell you, it’s a pain in the butt!! But I am really pleased with the over all appearance of the house with it, it really does make a huge difference. The only part I am having trou
  24. Well I happy to stay that ive made it to the top floor! whoo hoo! well since I was having problems with the 3rd floor bottom being unlevel putting in the right, left, and front walls was very tricky. I ended up triming the bottom slots a little bit so they would fit better. then used ALOT of glue. took about 40 mins of holding certain pieces while they dried, then carefully fitting the next piece in. the 2 post on the side of the house were very easy to put on. just put some dabs of glue cliped on a few clips to hold it while it dried, and wa la! perfecto :w
