Repaint done!

The main repainting portion of the house is done! I spent a good chunk of last night bashing the walls into the floor wit ha tent peg (I couldn't find a hammer). The roof is currently loosely balanced on the top of the house as I want to create wallpaper templates for the top floor of the house first.

Repaint side

It's really quite messy inside, with all the paint sloppily outside of the protruding bits. Good thing wallpaper will cover it up.

It's also really quite dark. The hubby and I were talking about putting some led lights in there eventually.

I'm really pleased with the way it came out. It actually almost looks like wood! The overall colour scheme came out rather on the dark side, but eh. I'm wondering if I should have left the railings white or painted them a lighter colour.

There are still lots of things to be done, wallpapering, creating a bakery case, food, counter, mini tables (I really should have bougth those mini popsticks I saw in Adelaide), umbrellas, a pond, some shrubbery... And maybe I'll repaint that veggie patch bootleg that came with the house. And those Sylvanian books! I need to paint those too!

  2. I really love how you remodeled this bootleg. you know, it kind of reminds me of the house in "Ju-On". heh, I'd still live in it ;)

  3. Xd Thanks guys!

    @BugzySUPERhappy - I can't remember how the house from ju-on looks like, it's been a while since I watched that movie. I guess the house would be good for halloween, hehe.

  4. ¡Una idea fantastica! Has conseguido un color perfecto de madera.
    Seguiré viendo los avances.
