  1. Well, I might add some sealer here and there, but it's ready to box up and put in the mail. (Aunt J, I need an address!) Sourcing: Inspiration: Robin Carey's "The Darling House" [Chantilly] , the color purple, and the desire to make a Newberg like nobody ever saw before "Duval" railing, "Barbados" and "CiCi" porch grills, "Cumbria" brackets, "Marissa" gables (3 lg, 1 sm): Heritage Laserworks Corbels and "Victorian picket roof ridge cap": Manchester Woodworks Papers, fabrics, "greenery": Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Joann's How to do the windows, door, 1st floor ceiling moulding, furniture, banjo clock: Kris' tutorials Window treatments: my own
  2. Had some fun with the kitchen curtains-- pleased with how these turned out: And the bathroom curtains: Using more cardstock forms with the curtains this time around: this cotton fabric is too thick to cooperate much in the way of fancy folds, but it will sit nicely on cardstock.
  3. Got the house landed on its 3/8"-thick plywood base (1/2" square dowel on the edge); got the lattice parts made (matboard) and the stair (cut the steps to make its width match that between the porch posts): Enjoyed making the parlor window treatments with satin ribbon trim-- had to think about em for a bit, two drapes on each side of the pelmet would've gotten a bit much for those two closely-spaced windows, but then it came to me: a single centered drape with a neck-tie knotted ribbon. Think I'll use that one again some time. One can't see it very well here but the window seat is fake tufted in the same fabric as the chairs. I did some boo-boos when cutting out the fencing-- "Duval" from Heritage Laserworks-- but I am thinking about strategic foliage placements. Now what are these guys doing here-- (This is the "Marshmallow Mouse" Calico Critters family. Aren't they cute?!) You can see that 1/12" is a bit tall and narrow for them; they're more like a fat 1/16". I am getting a new niece this summer, and have gotten this kit for the mouse house: Now this is a really blah kit, but I have in mind to do a real number on it: I did a google search for "victorian style houses exterior" and found a couple views of this house (that is apparently from pinterest; I don't know the origin so apologies if it's your house but WOW!): I may play around a little with the color scheme, but it is really starting to grow on me. For the mouse family, I will need to do some custom-fitting and some custom furniture, like I did for the Calico Critters hedgehog family in the Shadybrook Cabin build.
  4. Hello Miniature Lovers! Does anyone want to take a road trip? We are cleaning out Grandma's collection and have quite a list of dollhouse kits, unfinished houses, supplies and furniture to sale. We would LOVE to sell the whole lot as a pickup. Wouldn't know the first thing about shipping this stuff or know nothing of ebay. We are located in Hutchinson, KS, so we are almost smack dab in the middle of the country. We do believe all kits are complete. Some boxes are pretty worn. A couple of the incomplete builds are as is (the two we couldn't identify). List and pics: Kits: Bellingham Farm House, Alexandra, Newberg, Granville, Duracraft Farmhouse Incomplete builds: Mint Julip, Victorian Cottage Jr that needs a little work, two unknown, San Fran bash and a cute little greenleaf We know a ballpark figure we'd like, so please....make an offer! Oh, and don't worry....Grandma is fine....just downsizing and off to the next hobby! Please see below link for photos....... https://imgur.com/a/knJ8k1B
  5. Hi! My name is Dawn and I am from Alabama. I got interested in dollhouses about 14 or so years ago and bought a Dura-Craft Newberg. I started to put it together, but messed up some of the parts, so it's still in the box. I've had three kids since I bought it and they, along with other things, have kept me busy. I am hoping once we move later this month I can get it put together with replacement parts I have found. I kind of live in a dollhouse. lol It's 768 square feet and I live in it with my husband and our children who are 12, 4, and 2. We have replaced the floors, refurbished walls, and we're going to replace the windows soon. It's cute and cozy like a dollhouse. Thank you all for letting me in your group!
  6. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    I made the windows and door using Kris' tutorials as a basis.

    The gable trim is "Marissa" from Heritage Laserworks. The exterior paint is Valspar Interior Satin "Moraine".
  8. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    I love the clock-- it's from Kris' banjo clock tutorial. The chairs and end table are also from her tutorials. The window treatments are my own design.
  9. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The cabinet is my own design, as are the window dressings.

    Newberg attic

    From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The flooring is a flocked paper from Hobby Lobby. I made the peaked trims to fit from matboard.

    Found the bathroom set cheap on amazon. The battery box is in here-- the tiffany lamp shades are from Dejoux miniatures.

    Newberg parlor

    From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    I made the piano some years ago from a tutorial on Dada's dollhouse. The floor is basswood strips.

    Newberg kitchen

    From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The little sink and the parson's chairs are from Kris' tutorials.

    Newberg right

    From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The base is covered with textured paper from Hobby Lobby-- painted and sealed.
  16. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The grill is "CiCi" from Heritage Laserworks. The brackets are "Cumbria".
  17. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    I made the flower boxes from matboard with sticker accents.
  18. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The fence is "Duval" from Heritage Laserworks. The kit's porch steps were too wide for the porch entrance I'd ended up with, so had to cut them down a bit.

    Newberg left

    From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The lattice is made from matboard. I used alot of Krylon "chalky finish" spray paint-- works great.
  20. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    The plants are from Hobby Lobby.
  21. I've been working on bits and pieces on the house, and on furniture from Kris' tutorials:
  22. Well I am not galloping along at any great pace here, but finally got my roof ridge cap from Manchester Woodworks installed (some spackle involved here): that is all that is left of two 22" pieces there at the bottom. (And my MacGyver method of holding the trim in place with pink ribbon. ) These are very time-consuming, with gluing and painting and drying: Kris Compas' small sink and banjo clock: I am working on some window treatments, but cannot for the life of me find my skewer sticks, so will have to make a pleater form out of matboard. Edit: So I made a pleater form out of matboard, and found some 1/8" dowel rod to put into action (scrap piece shown here), and I like how these turned out: And a couple more views of the small sink:

    Flower boxes.

    I did some more on the roof with washes, and have spent a while on window trim, including flower-boxes made of matboard. I realized right after I hit the "buy" button on my order to Manchester Woodworks that I should've gotten some brackets for the boxes, but didn't want to pay all that shipping all over again so I cut some out of foamboard-- painting and spackling to finish them. I didn't put any boxes on the right side, or on the bump-out, because the width is just a bit under 24" and I need to keep it that way for ease of shipping. I decided that the ferns and large leaves were too-- much, so I trimmed it back and like this much better: I think that I will apply some white/light paint on the flowers here and there to lighten them up a bit. Yellows-- need more yellows to set off the purple. And some bright green turf.
