  1. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    The upper right room has a popsicle stick whitewashed floor! Can you see the little nail holes? ;) This room will be the craft/sewing/dollhouse building room!
  2. CJN Miniatures in Edmonds, WA recently moved to a new store at 23030 Hwy 99. It is a yellow 2-story building between Les Schwab & Public Storage. They not only have everything you need for a dollhouse, but also dolls, collectibles & antiques now. They offer consignment at 30% and have many artisan and older items in stock. Visit them at http://CJNMiniatures.com CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT-1.docx
  3. From the album: Orchid Shabby Chic

    I had a few other projects I was hoping to finish by now, but I spent the last few weeks telling myself I could open up the kit during Spring Break. Yesterday I broke out the kit and started popping out the pieces so they could be painted, sanded, etc. The main floor of the dollhouse is warped - not terribly, but I need to do some research about how best to fix it before I glue anything else in place.
  4. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    This is the latest dryfit of the dining room. The floors have been installed on their template & will be painted & distressed I think. The fireplace interior brick has been painted awaiting grout. I need to figure out how to simulate a marble hearth (just a stand in piece of mat board with lines at the moment ) The windows are giving me trouble. It seems the pieces that have the window tracks in them have had a piece broken off them over the years and so are no longer wide enough to fit the bays. I've currently got them shimmed with paddle pop sticks, but need to come up with
  5. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Finished up the floor for the dining room today. Still need to decide how to finish it. I'm leaning towards painting it white and then sanding back for a distressed worn look, but I might try a limewash colour first. I have finally decided on adding the kitchen door to the front of the dividing wall and not the back. I think for furniture placement the back worked better but at the end of the day I just like the look of the door at the front. The stairs will get some fretwork from Earth and Tree. I'm trying to jazz them up a little because the HW narrow stairs are not my fav
  6. From the album: Adopted

    Using popsicle sticks cut at random lengths. Sanded with mouse sander, used 120 then 220 grit. Mixture of 50/50 white paint /water brushed on then wiped off. Five coats of water based poly, sanded between each coat. It is perfectly imperfect, some spaces, which I can certainly live with. I loved the floor so much I had to repaint the left room from dark to a medium purple. I will have to make a new top step on staircase as step and the raised height of sticks do not line up. Hopefully soon be able to glue the roof on as my cats are getting used to the open roof concept and are alwa

    Stained Floor

    From the album: Green Cottage

    I found a scrapbooking product to stain the floors - "Distress Stain" in walnut. It's designed for paper & porous surfaces so I figured I'd try it out and see what happened. Very happy with the end result. I used a coat of matte spray sealer over the top once dry.
  8. From the album: Lisa's Country Cottage Kit

    What do you think? Because I think it's too much, but I think I'm already in love again. I found this free flooring printie and wanted to see how it looked compared to the linoleum type flooring I'd already measured out. (Btw, using the ruler and gridlines in paint can save you from wanting to throw your computer across the room.) I don't know how the outside of the cottage turned out green and the cabinets too, while everything else seems to be screaming for shades of blue with compliments of green and yellow? I feel this cottage is turning into what my future RL house is going to be
  9. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    I did the library floor with those tiny sticks that you find in the popsicle stick area... Naturally I chose the smallest room to do this one in!
  10. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    As described in this thread:

I've used real slate (gathered and cut myself) for mini roofs in the past, but not for floors. And I had neither the time nor the inclination to add real slate to this particular project, but I really wanted the look—in a room where there's a wood fire going and a lot of heat being generated by the sugaring process, for months running, a slate floor just makes good sense. 

This faux-slate floor came out great, with no materials at all except paint

. Note: The base of the 2014 HBS Contest kit is MDF, so it has
  11. From the album: Orchid:Mermaid Dreams

    I decided on this flooring because its kind of beachy looking. I was going to use it just for the kitchen, but I didn't have enough wood pieces to do wood flooring in the living room so I decided to just roll with it and do the whole downstairs with this.
  12. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The shop's floor is done in a bit of scale random-width pine flooring I had leftover from another project, and the walls are done in beadboard panelling. I wanted the shop to have a warm, honeyed look that contrasts nicely with the slightly grungy look of the work room, stays true to the woodsy nature of any maple-sugaring business, and makes mini visitors want to buy buy buy all those maple goodies!
  13. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    See the previous photo for a step-by-step description of how I did this floor. It's been said that it also looks a great deal like soapstone, so if you've ever wished for mini soapstone countertops, you may want to give this method a try. I'd probably ding it a bit less for soapstone, though.
  14. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    I saw an image on flicker (Karla's Cottage) of a painted floor, it was stunning!! This is my version in miniature. The floor is made with Popsicle sticks, painted and glazed with a darker color.
  15. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    Finished the LR floor in high gloss (not a fan but hubs suggested it and, hey... he's always right *wink wink). Pic doesn't do it justice!
  16. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    Living room floor today, just wanted to share the pic of this tool... its the (Midwest Products) Easy Cutter Ultimate...its that weird thing in the upper left corner with the blue handle... This "snipper" cuts wood up to 1/2 inch thick, angles, you name it. $16 @hobby lobby with coupon!

    Shed 3

    From the album: Potting Shed

    The shed's interior is "unfinished" so the studs are visible. The floor is covered with sandpaper painted grey, I like things neat but to be realistic, I guess I'm gonna have to grunge up the walls and floor.
  18. From the album: Christmas Surprise for our niece

    A full shot of the Duracraft Newberg interior. Wallpapered with Minigraphics Wallpaper Mucilage from Hobby Lobby with a foam brush - for my first time, I'd say it went rather well. What is left? Baseboard, Chairrail and the wood flooring that my husband is going to cut at work :-) Mitering 101 for me!

    View from An Attic

    From the album: Country House - Renovated

    So far, this is the third floor of Maureen's Vermont, Jr. dollhouse. The kit came with those nice, smooth floors. If she leaves the house by the window, it should get some nice light.
  20. From the album: Tig's Pierce Progress

    This back corner was challenging - I needed arms about 2 feet longer with a few more joints in them so that I could bend them every which way to get in the furthest corner where the stairs will come up. If only this website had existed 20 years ago where I would have discovered how much smarter it is to create these templates BEFORE you glue the majority of the house together instead of AFTER!
  21. From the album: Tig's Pierce Progress

    I should be able to lift these paper borders out and place them onto a sheet of poster board to trace around making a full floor template. My intention is to make my own hardwood floor on the poster board out of strips of wood laminate, staining and varnishing to my liking. Then I can lay the flooring down and glue if needed. I plan to wire for lights, so the flooring will cover wires running around for the floor below. I'm not sure if I want to glue the floor down permanently or not yet. I may just leave it laying there to make wiring issues easier to solve. It depends on how well it la
  22. From the album: Tig's Pierce Progress

    I figure what works in RL should work in miniature so I used the same method that I used for creating the template for my kitchen floor when I cut and installed new flooring myself a few years back. I laid strips of paper around the borders, taping and folding as I went. A few cross pieces here and there keep everything square (or in the case of my 100 year old house - NOT square!) when I take it out to lay on my choosen flooring.

    And here are the upstairs floors . I absolutely LOVE these veneer sheets. I did all the floors for less than three dollars .
