About Me

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 : Painting the Shelves

Hi there

Now that I know that all the yummie things I'm gonna sell in my bakery, it's time to paint the shelves, don't you think πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

This is what I started with : a naked, unfinished piece of furniture


Here's what it lookes like after painting ... I stayed with a very light mix of yellow and ochre, because the walls in my shop are already very colorful and because I want the customers to concentrate on what's gonna be IN the shelves, not their color


This is what it looks like after adding a few details, gold trims, etc


and here's more or less the final result .... I painted a few plain white corner stones with gold and I'm gonna add the lace to all the compartments of course

Another idea I had was to use small pieces of the reddish wallpaper I used in the room, to give the shelves a really personal note. What do you think ?

Here's the completed and nicely filles shelf

And finally, these are the 2 smaller shelves I finished today

Come back soon
See ya ...
