  1. I bought a dollhouse from someone who was selling theirs on Facebook. The dollhouse is in great condition. I believe it’s a Real Good Toys dollhouse but I’m not too sure about that. I wasn’t able to find pictures of another one like it online. However, I don’t like where two of the walls were placed by the previous owner. The house has two dormer windows upstairs but you can only see one from the back view because the walls are blocking it. There’s currently 3 rooms upstairs, but only one of those rooms has a window you could see. I’d like to remove those two walls and move them so that the w
  2. So, I was nosing around on Market Place and I saw a pretty dollhouse that someone wanted $150 for. I didn't think the dollhouse was worth that, so I kept looking. I came back every day looking and then I saw this new one listed. The seller was asking $189 for it, and I thought it was worth a lot more. I contacted her and asked if it was still available. She indicated it was and said she had to get rid of it by Tuesday. Perfect, I said. I will come get it. THEN I had to figure out how we were going to bring this dollhouse home. We wound up renting a uHaul van and loading it up into the van and
  3. So, back in 2002, I bought a pre-built display McKinley from Country Store miniatures in Vancouver WA. That store is now closed. At the time, the McKinley was discontinued, so I was desperate to have it, in spite of not really having time or space for it. Fast forward 16 years and the dollhouse crossed the US twice, lived in a humid attic and was turned into a squat house for some Douglass squirrels. This past year, my husband built me a little 'she shed' for my authoring and for my crafting and minis business, and I was able to take the McKinley down from the attic, clean out the nests of foa
  4. From the album: Refinished furniture

    Another long-term project finished. The armoire had a cheap plastic mirror insert in the door, stain color was awful and bland. Steps of restoration: 1. Used stripper to get the finish off 2. Carefully dissolved the glue joints to separate armoire into all of its building components. 3. Cleaned off all residues 4. stained all pieces 5. sanded all pieces (down to 2000 grit paper) 6. Hunted for a photoframe with glass thin enough 7. Cut new glass front 8. Reassembly of armoire 9. Replaced hardware 10. Wax and polish (not done yet..... hahaha) All in all, I'm very happ

    So much progress in just a few short weeks. I'm really starting to feel good about this!

    Front view update

    From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Still need to add the extra moulding around the French doors. But, this sure looks a lot better than a few weeks ago. Painting the shutters black now. Also need to add "glass" into windows and door along with brass door handles.
  8. From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    My new French door arrived yesterday. While I was happy to get it I was more than a little disappointed in the lack of moulding on the frame compared to the one I have to replace. See the next image to view my remedy for this.

    Front steps

    From the album: Southern Dynasty Restoration

    The front porch steps were removed for easier transport from my dad's house to mine.

    I recently ordered new brass coach lights for the front entry, looking forward to replacing the broken ones shown here.
