Decorating the Dolls’ House

Exciting prospect; decorating a plain, wooden dolls’ house. This would have to be done before it was assembled.

Front aspect with white window frames and eucre overhangs. I ‘assembled’ the structure to get an idea of what it might look like.

And decided to download free wallpaper; www.jenniferprintables.com s6rather than buy children4adhesive. Tip: spray prints with hairspray to fix the colour. PVC glue adhesive. I slid the back of the house in place and marked out the rooms in pencil for the positioning of the wallpaper.

I worked out how to hang curtains while resting one afternoon; tiny metal eyes (prized from the attached picture-hanging rings), shirring elastic, a needle-threader and wooden beads. This will enable a change of curtains in the future. And a roller blind for the bathroom. That’s what having a rest can achieve!

I painted the plain wooden furniture and hung prints and paintings on the walls, these range from Picasso, to Rupert the bear with family photographs in between.

Decorating the dolls’ house has\taken me a full-time week to complete and I have enjoyed every second.
