My original plan was to wait until I had cut all the strips then dye them in one big batch. My thought was using the Rit dye bath would create a lot of dye, and I didn’t want to waste it. But, then I figured there’s no time like the present. I’m not finishing the cutting anytime soon, and I might as well run this little experiment and see how it turns out.
Building the dollhouse window wasn’t as bad as I feared. It wasn’t easy, but I accomplished something amazing!
Looking at all I’ve got left to do, I was going to assemble the window, finish painting the stairs, and paint the door.
I’ve been working on the wood floors for the Keeper’s House. And the first floor is done! Kind of. Sort of. Not exactly.
I decided to forge ahead with the balsa wood floors. Why? I had a feeling it was going to take quite a bit of time to get them done.
As much as I enjoy building the dollhouse, there are all sorts of tiny details that keep popping up. Things that I never realized mattered. Or, I didn’t realize how much they mattered.
What I like about building miniature dollhouses is that I can change my mind as I go. What I hate about building miniature dollhouse is that I can change my mind as I go.
I finally had a chance to repaint the window pieces. Short version: I am very happy I did it. Long version: during the process, I wasn’t so sure.
I decided to take a break from building to do more planning. Building a dollhouse from scratch takes thoughtful planning.You can’t just wing this stuff.
