Hello everyone,

My name is Erin and I received the Arthur dollhouse kit when I was 11 and assembled it with my mother. That was 25 years ago! I’ve recently been inspired to get back into miniatures and I’ve decided to renovate my old dollhouse. 

A lot of things have changed in twenty-five years, especially all the resources now at hand thanks to the internet.

I’m really looking forward to my “new” hobby and I’m already having a great time looking at other’s photos and getting ideas.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I’m already obsessed and I’ve barely begun. I have a million ideas but I’m forcing myself to finish shingling (was never finished) before I start any new projects.

I have a few questions already, should I ask them here?

You probably want to ask them in the General Forum. More people will see them there.

You can ask general construction/ finishing questions in the general info forum and questions about the Arthur in the Greenleaf dollhouses subforum.  If you're specific in your topic heading it will make it easier for other people to find the answers in the archives later on.

      Has anyone seen "The Miniaturist" on PBS?  It is based on a novel by Jessie Burton, the story is set during the 17th century Dutch Golden Age, where a young girl marries a rich merchant who bequeaths her a beautiful dollhouse.  Without giving much away, it is a fascinating story full of intrigue, involving the dollhouse, the elusive miniaturist, and the dollhouse owner.  The production brought on Mulvany & Rogers to make the 17th dollhouse replica.  If you have not seen it, it is a good watch on a lazy afternoon.

      Hello All,

      Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved playing with dollhouses, playhouses and puppet theaters.  The surreal time we are all living in with this pandemic has made me reflect and look back at the fond memories and nostalgia for a simpler time of endless hours of fun playtime.  Even though I haven't built a wooden dollhouse kit since I was 12-years-old, I have always been the crafty DIYer type of person that enjoys to do projects, so doing an advanced house wouldn't overwhelm me nor using an x-acto knife scare me. 
      Recently, I purchased a wonderful turn-of-the-century "Grande Dame" house, but it needs fixing up after a long time of neglect by previous owners.  Thus, I thought why not do the home restoration along with building a miniature house concurrently.  My friends and significant other think I am crazy, but I know that I will find all the support here.  There are plans that I have been considering and open to any of your suggestions.   I have been a long time lurker of this forum and have enjoyed reading many of your posts, the information has been very informative.  Thank you for reading.

      I bought the Garfield with most already build. There’s some doors & steps missing. I’ll figure it out just wanting to see better pictures if anyone has done it to see! Thank you!

      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!

      Hi,

      I am currently working on my first dollhouse. It is an Alison Jr. I am hoping to handpaint and illustrate my own wallpaper and am not sure where to start. What paper is recommended? Also wondering if a seal, specific glue is required. I was hoping to make individual entire wall sized paintings (probably with watercolour paint) that will mount to the walls as wallpaper (and won't fade over time).
