This weekend, I finally got around to picking up work on the dollhouse again. (This was an op shop find from last year).
I managed to get about half of the front facade properly clean. Not a huge achievement, but a step in the right direction.
It was pretty slow going, a job tackled with a toothbrush and elbow grease. You can see how well the timber is coming up on the upper wall here...
Parts of it are unbelievably filthy, like the side porch here. I haven't made it to that part yet. Yuck.
I was hoping I wouldn't have to paint the exterior but I think I may have been kidding myself. A coat of white enamel will really make a difference... once we get to that stage, anyway. There's plenty of hours of toothbrush-scrubbing to go first.
Once outside is done, there's inside to work on... Did I mention how big a job this is?
I've heard there's a dollhouse shop in Brisbane too, I can't wait to go and have a look around and start picking out a few bits and pieces for the interior.
