Dollhouse Renovation - Day Two

I've been working on the roof of my dollhouse this afternoon. Why is it that I spend most of my mini-time waiting for glue to dry?!

Here's the before photo:


First, I primed over the red. Then I drew lines down the roof for my little sticks.

It was easy to figure out the scale because the RL metal roofing panels are 12" wide.


I can't believe what a difference a few sticks and some glue has made! From the side it really looks like a real metal roof! I'll paint it with the aluminum spray paint I got later.

I did all of this while it was pouring down rain outside! Couldn't do that on a real life house!

Hope you have a good evening and have a nice dry roof over your head!

Blessings, Kathi

Wow, what a transformation! I am eager to see what it looks like after you have painted it. Using the sticks was a great idea!

It does look good! I know what you mean about glue drying. I have finally started gluing some of the walls on Joanna's Victoria's Farmhouse together! I'd much rather be decorating than building! Trying to do as much of it myself as I can before resorting to asking DH to help!
