  1. New member, old project!

    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.
  2. Don’t know where to start

    I just had a baby girl (after 2 boys) and bought a beautiful huge but old doll house. I want to renovate it but don’t know where to begin. My biggest problem is I don’t know what material the walls of the house are made out of. It’s maybe plastic, mdf, wood, no clue. The trim is all wood so that’s good. So my main questions are: what type of paint should I buy to paint the unknown material?!  What should I use to seal it all so it last a long time walls - scrapbook paper or is it worth it to splurge on wall paper?  Roof - the roof is huge. I don’t even know where to begin or what to ask  ahhhh any advice is SO greatly appreciated! ***shoot I can’t upload a pic
