Sorry I searched and searched but all I could find is people talking about their removable walls in here and google was confused and gave me false doors… Anyway I’m turning the upstairs of my aster cottage into a proper loft and want to put up a removable/false wall for the bathroom. How do you do that? Do I need mini wheels like they use in closets to slide it back and forth or do I just wedge it in and hope for the best?
Hello! My name is Mariana I collect and make miniatures (sweets and treats for non-scale dolls) along with 1/6 scale and non-scale dolls from Japan (Azone, obitsu, Nendoroid). I’ve been working with the diy dollhouses from China for about 4/5 years now. Last year I made the real good toys gazebo, and now I am currently working on the Aster Cottage as my first 1/12 scale house. I apologize now because I am an extremely visual person and coming from the diy dollhouses where everything has pictures with an instruction step the wall of text instructions is quite intimidating honestly.
Hi, Everyone! I am new to the Greenleaf Forum. I live in Fairfield County, CT. I have loved tiny things since I was a child and from about age 9 into my teens I loved decorating my childhood dollhouse (a four-room tin house with an "addition" of 8 rooms thanks to two liquor store boxes, haha) and making mini things for it. I really didn't pack the house away until I went to college, but then for about ten years I didn't think much about miniatures. Then I found a dollhouse kit at Goodwill and put that together and decorated it sort of on a whim. Ten MORE years went by, and my mom sent me a little quarantine birthday care package that contained a miniature room kit, which I finished putting together a few weeks ago. I started poking around on Instagram looking at some of the amazing things miniaturists do, and now I am wondering why I haven't been making miniatures and building things this whole time! I think I didn't realize what a large community of people it is. It sort of felt like something I enjoyed as a kid and almost didn't realize could be a hobby for me as a "grown-up", too. So here I am! I just bought an Aster Cottage kit, and am slowly getting ready to put that together with a Christmas theme, but I'm doing lots of reading and preparing because I want it to look great :-)
Has anyone else noticed the first-floor ceiling height seems very low in the Aster Cottage? I'm a bit disappointed. I don't visualize very well, I have to actually see something in place to get the dimension of it. I put the second floor in and the ceiling almost touches my 1:12 scale doll's head! I don't even have room to put a light in. I splurged on a light fixture because I've looked everywhere for one just like the picture I'm following and I can't even use it. Kim
