  1. The Pierce Dollhouse

    So I am building the Pierce.  Question with regards to the floors.  My thought is, sanding the floors down and using a stain vs. adding actual hardwoods.  What are you thoughts on this?  I would us polyurethane to make the floors shiny.  The stain would match the dreaded staircase.
  2. Wallpaper and Flooring

    Question - Should I wallpaper and floor as I build or do it at the end? 
  3. Saving a Beacon Hill

    Thanks for the feedback.  I feel a little better.  I was hoping to upcycle the house for my cat as he seems to enjoy it.  But then again, the issue of space comes up.  I am a first time builder - many have said that a Bedford is not the way to go.  Any recommendations on a good kit.  I still have the furniture from the old house. 
  4. Saving a Beacon Hill

    So its been a while since I've last been on.  But my dollhouse is not doing well.  Its killing me to admit that this is a lost cause --- but I don't have the heart to bury it.  My thought wa to get another kit, rebuild and add some remembers to the house.  Thoughts?  Very guilt ridden right now.
  5. Saving a Beacon Hill

    Hello! My name is Christina and I aquired a Beacon Hill dollhouse from a friend who was moving. I remember when she was building it and before she sold it, I asked her if I could have it. The dollhouse has seen better days - it was played with by some little girls who did not understand the concept of playing nicely. Right now, I'm trying to save it. As of now, I am working on the outside and using a Dremel on it. Some of the pieces are so glued that I am going to have to sand them down, cut them off, or merely fill in the cracks with putty of some sort. My side kick is my Persian cat, Sebastian who has managed to fold himself up and move into the lower level of the house. Any advice that you might have would be fantatic! Christina
