Hmmm. I wanted them to look like candy, but um, they don’t. They look like badly glazed dollhouse furniture.
Do you think I should try to repaint the fixtures, or leave them as-is? I do like how luminous the glaze is, even if it is terribly uneven. The bathroom will be the small room on the second floor of my dollhouse. I think I’m going to use that gold patterned paper as wallpaper, and I’ll probably make a different mirror to go above the sink. The ceiling will either be wallpapered along with the walls, or it will go shiny gold.
- Tastefully decorate the house so that the only way you could tell it’s a miniature is with a coin in there for scale. Design each room like I’d design a real room, just scaled down.
- Go crazy and kooky. This is not a real house, dang it! Why not have gold ceilings and pink fixtures and hot pink stairs with striped runners (not that I’ve decided yet)?
I’ll tell you, I think the second option sounds like a lot more fun. It’s a fantasy! Why not fully embrace that?
How many of you are working on dollhouses along with us? How are you approaching yours?
