Whats going on in the Elcheapo Dollhouse..
In the last instalment I had all finished rooms of the El Cheapo dollhouse ready for moving in. Baseboards even – I am nothing if not ambitious =) Of COURSE I didn’t take into account that kitchens look stupid sticking out in front of baseboard…duh.
SO the newly finished inside dollhouse got it’s first renovation – ripping out the baseboards! I feel so powerful.
finished bits go in and a new skill discovered!
So I had finished my sink unit, my little stove and fridge. After playing about with different variations I discovered the one I liked but had a problem – I needed a counter to fill the corner. I managed to take some rough measurements and knocked up a counter that more or less fits right in there! Can you say amazement. Didn’t know I had that in me but hey….my grandfather was a cabinetmaker – it must be in the genes.
Now I have a kitchen and have to make MANY things to fill it. Wow, this is gonna take a LONG time. Because I have already started other projects on the side including a 1:48 (quarter scale shop) and refurbishing some 1:12 scale furniture. I usually document each finished piece on instagram so I can start seeing if my work gets better over time. There has been tragedy…. Check out my instagram for the daily updates on things I suddenly decide to make.
What Did I Learn?
- Plan ahead ya eejit!
- Halfscale items are way less robust then1:12 scale =P
- I need to STOP losing things =(
