    The pale yellow and blue compliment each other. It is a very charming room! I like the floor, it looks so clean. You can always cover it with a throw rug if it bothers you.    
  2. Vintage Style Kitchen Stool

    You did a wonderful job!
  3. Tower - Center Window

    Your windows are fabulous. Do you have a link for the lead tape you used?

    Hi Dakota, Maybe do some online research for glue removers. Xylene and Krud cutter. I have never used them, so I can't offer any direction, except follow the directions and safety precautions.
  6. Help! Real life mini furniture kit 200

      I'll have to dig them out and scan them. I'll message you when I have them ready so I can email them to you.
  7. Your dream house

    When I do a Victorian era house I want it to be similar to the house from Meet Me in St. Louis. I like how the house has dark wood, but isn't dark and heavy feeling like some Victorians can feel. Plus, I enjoy the movie!

    !/2 scale kit. I've never seen these before, but I thought some of the 1/2 scalers might be interested. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dollhouse-Miniatures-1-2-Half-Inch-Scale-Cassidy-Creations-Washer-Dryer-Kit/152943680810?hash=item239c275d2a:g:SAQAAOSwuepaqB7Z

    Welcome to the forum Dakota. You can try to disassemble the house and then re-glue. You probably can get the missing piece from Real Good Toys.( https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0164/0860/files/JM1065_A4_6-17.pdf?5646145962560229785) Usually heat and a putty knife can soften up the glue. I am sure other members will have suggestions for you in this area. I like Kilz primer, it comes in spray and quart sizes, but I imagine the Zinsser is just as good.
  10. Beginning to look good!

    Well done. I have enjoyed watching your progress. You have a beautiful piece of art!

  12. Hello from Idaho!

    Welcome April. I saw that there is a miniature show coming to Boise soon.
  13. Chicken Thief!

    I guess hunger (I hope it was hunger) makes people do desperate things...Of course, if you have money for cigarettes you should be able to buy food!
  14. Porcelain pieces

    Everything is gorgeous Karin.
  15. Help with Door and Window measurements

    I just bought narrow doors for my willow from Earth and tree. It is from Classics rather than Houseworks. You may need to add filler or get creative with the trim to hide any gaps? https://earthntree.com/miniatures/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_1011_1013&products_id=9131
