About Me

My photo
I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

My French Bakery : The Interior of the Shop and the Tea Room

Hi everybody .... I was so into working on my french bakery that I almost forgot to post ... lol

But as promised, here are a few new pictures on how it's going on with my future shop

For the interior walls, I used leftover from real wallpaper we actually used in our house. I like the colors and this technique has the advantage that it does already have a very nice texture, so no need here to use the sponge trick. As you can see, I already started with tiling the floor


The picture above shows the rest of the walls, the front door and the 2 big shop windows

The tiles are finished, yuppie πŸ‘‹πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

It took me a few evenings to finish, because tiling is a job that needs to be done very accurately if you want to have a satisfactory end result

The 3 pictures above show the walls for my tea room on the 1st floor .... dark brown and light yellow go very well together. I used our ol wallpaper leftovers again, judt perfect for this project

This is work in progress .... the florring for the tea room.
If you want to have a wooden floor in your dollhouse or other miniature project, there are different possibilites you can choose from.
1) Flooring paper sheets (not my personal favourite)
2) Strip Floors (wood, good option, but usualy doesn't fit the room, so there's some cutting to do)
3) Wooden floor boards (usually a good quality, but same problem with fitting the room)
4) Loose wood stripes (this is what I used in this projects here as you can see in the pictures above ... more work, but easier to cut and fit)

Here's the finished floor ..... looks great, I think

Stay tuned, there's ... always ... more to come

See ya
