The girls and I did some good work on the WAMH yesterday! This is just a quick post to show you what Fred worked on.
She painted the wood panelling a dark grey-blue (it's Montpelier by Benjamin Moore) then glued on the scenic wallpaper. She did a great job!
This pattern is SC-Clasico by Les Chinoiseries, a Spanish company which makes and sells the most divine wallpapers and fabrics. I cut the border pieces off (I may use them in the blue and white room) and I really like the way it looks with the greyed blue of the panelling.
The panelling isn't done, of course -- I've just got the chair rail on, but I'm going to do mitred rectangles of moulding in the centre of each panel. Tiddles worked on the panelling in the hallway, and I've done some work on the wall opposite the one above, but my pictures were lousy :)
This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
