Its been a while since I posted any updates on my Coventry Cottage project… over a whole month in fact! So here’s a pretty long post on what went on.
Starting off, I made a junky paint box to aid in the painting. Its a horrible excuse for a paint box since its too small and there is too much overspill when using a spray paint can with it, but at least the mess wasn’t as bad as expected.
Here are the trims after painting and gluing on the vinyl “glass.”
A close up of the paint job. In future dollhouses, I’ll probably spackle the heck out of the trims or make/buy my own to make it look more realistic.
Now to clear coat the floorboards (not shown) and the channel trims that I’ll use to hide the ugly edges. Since I wanted the trims to have a “natural” finish, I used the Valspar clear gloss to coat them.
It makes such a HUGE difference after the trims are installed. You can compare it with a similar picture here. Also, I do notice that one ceiling area where its not finished… I keep forgetting to do that!
I also trimmed the attic. I am loving it!
And just for fun…..
ZOMG! A motorcycle in my house.. and a giant scissor!
