You can download instructions here:

But in general, the outside windows go on the top, the inside windows go on the bottom. I just finished this kit, so there are pictures in my album.

      Hello! 

      I'm currently working on my first dollhouse. I bought this already assembled and have noticed there are hinges in the corners of most of the rooms (photos attached) some of which stick out quite  bit. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for how to hide these as I don't want them to show under my wallpapers. (it seems as if they were used to pull the corners of the dollhouse walls together)

      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I stumbled upon a Newberg at a local thrift shop for $3 the other day & obviously couldn't pass bringing it home. It was spray painted pink, had glitter glue adorning the exterior window casings & the roof was a lovely sponge painted gold & purple -- OOF. Anyhow, I've repainted the exterior to mimic local Victorian home I'm in love with, but wanted to reach out for some suggestions to replace the missing trimmings for the arched window frames. Reframing the square frames was easy enough, I just used some bass wood from the craft shop, but for the curved frames I'm at a standstill. Would you suggest cardstock or mat board? I supposed  I could cut them all from wood, but it would be pricey & I'd likely ruin quite a few in the process. 
       
      I'd also love some suggestions to add back the lovely gingerbread work to the window panes. I was thinking just adding the designs to some clear plastic with a paint pen...I've attached the house as it stands currently.

      I picked up a dollhouse trunk kit from an estate sale and thought it would be the perfect accessory for my most recent house building project.  However, while all of the pieces/components were there, the kit was missing the critical instructions.  I thought it would be a cinch since, after all, it was only a basic trunk, but when I poured out the contents there seemed to be a few more pieces than what was represented in the only drawing that was included.
      First off, just based on the picture (there was no manufacturer information included) can anyone identify this kit?  Secondly, I am pretty since the inside is intended to be papered, that this is a fully functioning, hinged, trunk and that the additional pieces are a part of that mechanism, but I am unsure of how to proceed.  Can anyone advise based on the picture?  I will do my best to describe the pieces:
      The kit came with:
      Wooden pieces to assemble top and bottom of trunk (done) Brass findings for the top and sides of trunk (done) Brass latch for the front of trunk (done)--all placed based on picture The parts I am uncertain of:
      4 brass half circles--I am assuming that these represent the back hinges, but am not sure if they belong visible on the back or on the inside back of the trunk when open 2 small brass medallions (they are cupped as seen in second picture).  Each of the medallions has a small hole on one end 2 small brass wires that came pre-bent--I experimented with these and they pass easily through the hole in the medallions without going all the way through 2 small brass hoops that slightly thin at the joint 1, approx 1.5" brass wire 1 piece yellow satin ribbon

      I purchased some light bulbs to add to DIY light fixtures. When they came in the mail they were different than I expected. Mainly, the wires were much shorter and were not insulated. Did I order the wrong thing? Can I still use these for my light fixtures?

      I'm a total newbie to the Dollhouse world and this is my first build and first lighting project. However, I'm experienced in other handicrafts so if you have any advice I'm sure I could manage it.
      Thank you!
