New member, old project!

10 posts in this topic

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.

Welcome, the Arthur looks like a great way to re-introduce yourself to minis.

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.

    • Wallpapering Over Wall Hinges?
      By AlisonJR
      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!
    • Handpainted Wallpaper
      By AlisonJR
      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).

      I have built a bunch of mini homes but I think the last one I did was over 4 years ago.  I really want to get back into it, I have tons of kits that I have great ideas for but I am feeling a little panic.  I just have not done this in so long I feel like I am going to screw it up somehow.  Starting with a Buttercup cottage for a 4 year old relative.  Looking for some good tips and maybe a few words of encouragement!
      Thanks!

      Hi everyone,
      I am happy to join this community of all things miniature.
      A little about myself: I have a very creative mind. Ever since I was a kid, I collected toys and simulated battles or adventure stories. I think that miniatures helped me escape from reality and I was able to create my own world. However, growing up, I lost touch of this passion of mine. I hope to rediscover this passion by exploring other people's creative worlds.
      First 2 questions: Where do you usually buy your miniatures and what do you look for ?
