Dollhouse Renovation - Day Three


Before

I'm trying to make my dollhouse look more like a beach house than a two story colonial.
I think color will be the key!

I primed over the dark blue doors and shutters. Then I put the first coat of paint on the house.



I'm not really happy with the aluminum spray paint I used on the roof, but that's another story...

I got sidetracked with the deck floor. It's plywood, so I scored it to look like deck boards. I'm planning to try to age it to look like weathered wood. Another project!



What do you think of the color?! I love it! Looks more "beachy" to me than before!

It's the same paint I used for my kitchen.



Of course my kitchen does NOT look like this now! There is "evidence of creativity" everywhere! I can't even find a place to put my coffee cup down!


Now I need to find "just the right blue" for the downstairs porch floor and "just the right pink" for the shutters! I'm till trying to decide on a color for the window boxes. Might just leave them white?

For now, I'm off the put the second coat of paint on and trying not to get distracted with something else! Like this little tassel I got at the dollar store!



I love the little bead at the top! The chains, wooden beads, glass beads and white ones...
Oh, the possibilities! It doesn't take much to take me away from what I need to do!

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday! If you are near the beach, please build a sandcastle for me!

Blessings, Kathi

The color is very beachy! Great choice of colors! I giggled over you using the phrase I used to describe a 'mess'.

I love seeing your progress, but your playlist on the sidebar is bad: she makes error! Am I the only one with this trouble?

Kathi said...

Sorry Oese, the playlist seems to be working okay here? I listen to it all the time. Is anyone else having problems with it?

I just decided to "do what I can with what I have" (like Mercedes!) I painted the shutters YELLOW! I already had the paint from my living room! I'll post more photos later...

I Loooove your little house! That color is so great- I love it in your kitchen too! Do you remember what it's called and the brand? It's the color that I want to paint my (life-size) studio and kitchen. I have a bunch of paint chips, but I'm having a hard time narrowing it down! Thanks!

Love the color on the house! :-)

Have you thought about aging the shutters with crackle medium?
