The exterior steps are finished and that was the last thing to finish the exterior. I am so happy with the way it turned out.
The spiral stairs were not difficult at all. The best part is how little space they take up so there will be plenty of room for the appliances.
I made the dining chairs from a couple of wooden spools and some of the punch out leftovers from the dollhouse kit. The table in the corner and the dining table have both been given a mosaic tile look and they turned out really well. The rug is a vintage potholder I picked up somewhere. All that's left is to make the couch, chair, and appliances.
I made the bed last night from a piece of dollhouse trim, a box lid, and four spools. The sheets are made from cloth napkins and the quilt is preprinted fabric.
This is such a fun project - especially now that I'm to the furniture and accessories stage. The girls are almost here so I won't be posting updates over the weekend. More to come next week!
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
