An Update on the Christmas Dollhouse November 29, 2020 by admin The furniture in progress: I used 1/2″ wooden cubes for cabinets, sinks, the stove and the refrigerator (two cubes glued together). The other pieces are made from strong cardboard and beads. I basically cut pieces from graph paper until I thought they matched the sizes of the stove and fridge and the rooms. The scale seems to have turned out well. Some pieces, I just drew out free hand, again keeping in mind the sizes of the other pieces of furniture. After gluing everything together, I painted all of the furniture. I chose fairly neutral shades of brown for the bedrooms so that choosing colours for the linens would be easy. We are in Covid-19 lockdown again, so only paint on hand could be used, which meant finding colours that matched each room, had to be a consideration. After making the kitchen and table sets, I decided the tables and chairs would be in the study, and a shelving unit was needed. It turned out a little wonky, maybe because I made it later at night, but the unit looks all right in the house. All in all, the furniture fits and looks okay. I will need to prop and glue the kitchen pieces in place because the floors are uneven, but uneven floors happen, even in the best of real size houses! Next up: linens, pictures for the walls and dolls to play with.
