    Rose paper

    From the album: Maison De La Rose

    This pattern was tricky to join up, but I think it will look beautiful on the walls.
  2. I painted the 3 floors the pink I wanted. Then I scored floorboards with the back side of my utility knife, to see if I liked it. After an hour and with very sore hands, it came out quite nice. But the lines weren't very visible and the pink was a bit too bright and new-looking. Then I sanded the floor a bit to pick up the edges of the floorboards. There is some white showing through from the primer layer. To tone down the brightness of the pink and to age the floors, I'm thinking of using watered down brown acrylic paint and giving the floor a thin wash, rubbing it off in places and letting it seep into the cracks of the floorboards. Any advice for me before I take the plunge? Here is a picture of the floor just before I sanded it down a bit. http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=view&id=121440

    Rose design

    From the album: Maison De La Rose

    This paper joined up beautifully. I might use the leftovers on the stair treads too.
  4. From the album: Maison De La Rose

    The left panel is the left side wall. The right panel is the entire back wall (you can see the 3 pink painted rooms that still need decoration). The 3 panels on the floor are the 3 interior room dividing walls. The rose papers were digital scrapbook papers that I reduced and copied next to each other in rows on an A3 paper until I filled the entire piece and printed at a printer's shop.

  5. From the album: Maison De La Rose

    Floors painted darker pink and I've scored floorboards into the surface with the dull edge of a craft knife. One floor done, two more to go! The photo shows a strange blue-pink; in reality it is more of a salmon colour.
  6. From the album: Maison De La Rose

    First layer of pink paint over white base. The paint is very translucent. I am going to sand it down and add some more patches here and there to complete the shabby look.
  7. Remember that old dollhouse shell without doors, roof and trim that I wanted to make into a department store? Well, I finally got hit by that wonderful streak of inspiration one night in a dream. Woke up the next morning, determined to find a way to bash another house on top of the department store. The only logical house would be either of the front-opening Greenleaf houses. But they are very scarce. Literally an hour later, I found a Gloucester on eBay and jumped at the chance. It will fit perfectly on top of the other shell with just a little bit of the bottom house being bigger. I will just have to come up with a creative way to finish off that edge or add small roof tiles or something else quirky. Then I had to redesign the entire front of the two houses. I don't like the Gloucester's door & windows, I want to make my house more Parisian. So I spent a happy evening on Pinterest just checking out all the various buildings in Paris. I'm building all my houses to be in Expatville, no specific location, no specific timeline. So I'm free to add some modern twists to the house instead of sticking to period details. For fun, I've ordered 3 massive oval attic windows and I'm going to change the roof into a Mansard style. Mme Hanna loves roses and pink, so I'm doing the whole building according to her taste. The fabric showrooms will have to be black/white/gray, otherwise the pink will just clash with all the fabric colours. I'm collecting rose print fabrics, furniture, paintings as well as pink items too. Here are some progress photos in my gallery: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=browse&album=6851
