    Table and benches

    From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    I thought I might be going too far with the Tudor look, which wasn't exactly what I first envisioned for this house. But as Havana Holly says, the house knows what it wants to be ...
  2. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Bathroom

    A little scuffing up and some paint gave these fixtures just the right amount of age and charm!
  3. Intro of my project HERE EXTERIOR As I mentioned in my intro, I plan on totally customizing the exterior. I will start by adding a portico style porch over the front door to give the house more depth. Then the whole bottom half of the house will have a stone finish. Photo 1: I love this house! This house was the initial inspiration behind the stone porch so I plan on replicating it on my Glencroft exactly! I can't wait to see how it will turn out. I also plan on finishing the chimney the same way. Plaster and Stone. Photo 2: I researched for days until I came across this stone stencil by Bromley Craft. I thought it looked extremely realistic and seems like it would work well with the tudor details around the rest of the house. Photo 3: Not sure where I saved this from, But this is going to be my reference when painting the stones to look real. Photo 4: This house is located just a few blocks from me and I love the details of the wood and the plaster. The textures seem like they will be a lot of fun (or a nightmare) to create in mini. My plan for this will be to attach all the wood detailing first and then fill in the spaces between the wood with spackle for the plaster. Ive experimented a few times with this over the weekend using popsicle sticks and so far it seems like it works pretty well. (See below photos) Photo 5: For the main living room window, I decided to make one completely from scratch to compliment the stone facade. I liked these medieval/gothic style window casements and decided this heavy stone look with the diamond leaded glass will look great on that specific window. Photo 6 & 7: For my wood & plaster exterior experiment/test, I cut and glued down the wood, then when dry....I sanded till smooth and went over it with a awl to scratch in the wood beam grain. For the plaster I painted the space with wood glue first and before it dried completely, I spread and smoothed the spackle as much as possible into the space. When completely dry, I used a moist rag instead of sandpaper and smoothed the spackle even more while simultaneously cleaning out the spackle from the tiny cracks in the wood. For my actual build, I plan on pre-finishing the wood trim before adding in the spackle so it doesn't stick AS MUCH to the wood and will be easier to clean off. The overall finished look seemed a bit more "Rustic" than what I want so we'll see how I refine this process. My Kit arrives tomorrow so I cant wait to start my Gallery/Blog! Thanks for reading guys! xx
  4. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Bedroom

    Here is the finished bedroom all dressed up with a few of the textiles I made.
  5. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Bathroom

    Heres a shot of the bathroom taken from the unfinished bedroom. The lighting coming into my studio this morning was beautiful so I couldnt resist!

    Sneak Peek!!!!

    From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Bathroom

    Here is a sneak peek of my first completed wall! This wall will eventually have the sink and toilet on it. Still needs grout and a little touching up. Can't wait to share the finished bathroom with ya'll! Only 2017263628289389 tiles left to install!!
  7. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    I finally added the beams and finished the crown moulding in the living room! I also finished the newel post on the stairs and the bannisters. The stairs look a little shiny because I had just varnished them. I got a little impatient and didnt want to wait for it to dry to take photos.
  8. TGIF! Im am so happy with the progress of my Glencroft! I started yesterday by gluing some of the remaining facade pieces. The upstairs gables were glued in and I was able to finally make my sub-walls out of foam board for the upstairs! (See pictures below). Once I finally had the front walls all tacked, I was able to start planning the Stone Portico/Porch that I will be adding to the front. I plan on making this out of 3/4 plywood to give the walls a heavy stone thickness but at first I wanted to make it out of foam board so I can get an idea how the finished product will look. Since the new porch addition covers most of the swooping roof line in the front, I was able to remove a small section on roof that comes through the living-room above the front door. Now, the room is nice and square. You can see in one of the pictures below. Last night I picked up a few finishing supplies (Stain, varnish and paint) so I can finally start doing some detailing. I want the wood throughout the house to be a really dark rick color so I plan on mixing a cherry, walnut and a hint of ebony stain to hopefully achieve this.

    Inspiration

    From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Bathroom

    I fell in love with this bathroom the second I came across it. I knew this was the bathroom I wanted to use as my inspiration for my Glencroft's Bathroom. I plan on making all the subway tiles by hand using various materials. (Thinking about posting a tutorial) SO stay tuned!
  10. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    Im starting to get a little jealous of this house. Starting to wish my actual house looked like this.
  11. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    Here is a full shot of the finished living room. The small hole in the center beam is for a light that I have coming in the mail. (SO I guess im not 100% done with this room)
  12. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    Another shot of the finished ceiling. For the white part, (before I glued in the walls) I painted the ceiling with 5 layers of white chalk paint I had leftover from a shabby chic project. Sanded it till it was paper smooth with 400 grit sandpaper, and then waxed it to seal it and give it that satin glossy look. I did the same thing for the dining room walls except I used a small brush to apply the paint and then lightly sanded so you can still see the texture to emulate plaster.
  13. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    I reeeealllyyy want to start furnishing!!! But I promised myself I wouldn't buy any furnishings till the house is done.
  14. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    The fireplace was a several step process. I used black acrylic paint to get a basecoat in the hearth and then once that dried, I used a lighter to add the final touch of realism by hovering it under an area of the fireplace that I wanted to blacken, being carful not to burn the resin of the fireplace.
  15. From the album: The Glencroft Dollhouse: Living Room and Dining Room

    I picked up the Chandelier from miniatures.com, I thought it worked well with the design of the rooms.
