  2. wheels done

  3. Ladies

    So beautiful!  I love the faces, you are very talented, I am enjoying your journey very much!
  4. What are you up to today? This week?

    Had to go get grain and "stuff" today and went with a friend, when we got back home and I was dropping her off she said come in and see this dollhouse someone dropped off at the clothing store, if you like it you can take it home.  I went in and it is a Greenleaf kit, still in the box of Santa's Cottage, looks to be in good condition, I will have to check to see if it is all there but looks like it.  There is also one of those greenleaf furniture kits, not sure it they are quite my style but may be useful in gauging sizes for me.  I think I am gathering dollhouse kits into a stash lol

    Beautiful!
  6. Chandelier question

    16 little e-packets came in the mail today!  I was surprised that they are here so quick but excited to see them!  Still a few more to go, guess I should go and see about the LED's I want to use for lights.  
  7. Lacquer paint

    That sounds like it came out good!  I ended up getting a spray can of black lacquer on one of those ad on offers on Amazon.  I really like the idea of a black piano even though other furniture may not be black.
  8. The main colour

    I love your main color, any shade of blue is great with me!
  9. How do you tongue and groove for minis?

    Does that mean you put groves in the board on the 4" side, not on the edge? 
  10. Lacquer paint

    Has anyone used Lacquer for furniture in a dollhouse, I think I would like the look but am not sure it would be just too shiny.  It is for the piano I am starting.  I am thinking about black lacquer.  I just don't like most of the other paints I have seen on a black piano, they seem to show paint brush strokes. 
  11. What's everyone working on?

    I am starting cutting for the piano, still trying to figure out some of the measurements, the video is in Korean and there doesn't seem to be a way to translate in-bedded captions, so I have watched it about a million times trying to pick out the measurements.  I am only taking parts of this one and parts of several others and parts that I just want to do!
  12. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    Bet that one will be bid up, cute!

    You can paint over glue, just can't stain.  Carefully sand with a ridged piece of board with sandpaper on it, so you don't over sand the part without paint or glue, the wood will sand away quicker then glue or old paint dribbles.  If you google miniature dollhouse spiral staircases you will get tons of places to help you find what you need or make it if you are that way inclined, the same places may have the trim you want.  
  14. Chandelier question

    I just started getting some of my orders from Ebay today, tiny bead caps, luckily some of the items are 4-5 from one seller, it got very confusing trying to order what I thought I wanted, I can relate to the buy desperately without a doubt. 
  15. Chandelier question

    so all these kits are only in a book you have to buy?   I looked through the catalog I printed with the price lit today while I was down selling eggs.  There are a lot of  wheels of different sizes  but I couldn't quite picture a chandelier made with them unless it was just a candle one.  I never saw so many little metal pieces in my life, I think I would need a plan before I tried to order anything.  Such a confusing place to do business, but they sure have a corner on the market!
