Let me tell you about my day. I opened the box of houses and funny thing, I didn't remember doing this years ago when I put the first 6 together. I took out the directions and read them front to back. Yes, I always read directions. I assembled my tool: the x-acto knife.
|How pieces come in box|
I kept the "window glass" and all white trim in the big plastic bag. You don't want to lose any of the pieces of trim. And there are sheets of shingles, too (these are heavy cardboard) but I've used them before and they work very well.
|Separated into 6 sections|
I started on the store and I am changing it to a flower shop. I want to make mini flowers and I need a place to store them. LOL
|Papered and painted|
There is a front porch on this building and a bay window on each side of the door. I painted the porch floor white and the inside of the bay window walls white, as well.
The one thing about Greenleaf that I don't like about this type of kit is that nothing is marked. (Their dollhouses are marked better.) I can't figure out what windows or floors go to what building yet. I'll do those at the end of the wallpapering. Floors are pretty easy. Just put the walls temporarily up and fit the floor inside.
So tomorrow I will start the second building. I have to search for paper and then I'll post it tomorrow night.
As promised, I have a few more goodies to show you from the Miniaturia show. I thought I would get to them today but this building project took a bit of time. Here they are:
The gold poinsettias are for the holidays. They are 1:12 scale.
The low bookcase kit and the fireplace kit are from sdkminiatures.
The screen on the right is from Michelle Miniatures. Wait until you see this screen made up! It's so small.
