Just some photos of the dollhouse renovation. I have been picking away at the wall paper. I don't have a lot of time to do this, so it usually takes place while waiting for the shower in the morning or the few minutes I have before my husband comes home with the kids from school.
Some of the paper has left some sticky residue on the walls. I think I'll need some goo gone to get that junk off. Peeling off those copper lines has been a pain in the ass.
And I have no idea how I'm going to maneuver in this tight stairwell. What a pain.
I love those real life photos of houses where the rises on stairs have been painted funky colors. I may do that here, because I would never dare do that in my own house.
I can't get this red check paper off. It's such a pain. I think they used superglue to adhere it. Bah.
The floors are in pretty good shape. I am debating whether or not to paint them or strip them and stain them a different color. I just don't know. I also like that they put miniature quarter round along the perimeter of each room. What a nice touch!
Besides prying off one big shingle, I have not yet tackled the roof. And check out the corner of it below. What wee beastie* did that? Was the house attacked by a squirrel? Or a mongoose? How big is a mongoose anyway and how come I've never seen one at a zoo? Do they even really exist? Or maybe they are extinct like that extinct bird...what is it? Not the Emu...the Dodo. Bonkers.
