This is a scrapbook of the building and decorating of my dream dollhouse, the Mountfield Dollhouse by the Dolls House Emporium, and other added dollhouses.
The Exterior View of New Orleans Townhouse

Weathered Effects on the Townhouse Facade
front with the sandstone paint before the final acrylic color
Started painting the bricks too
I painted the exterior walls of the townhouse with the textured paint that I used on the hat shop as a base coat. I glued the fleur-de-lis wooden appliqué in place and painted over it with the sandstone texture paint. I then painted the facade of the townhouse's exterior Peaches and Cream color in acrylic paint. From a design standpoint, I am having trouble seeing how to incorporate "real windows" into the interior with the best furniture placement. The townhouse is like a row house with buildings on both sides. I hated feeling like the best part of the exterior is the front opening with nothing else externally of interest, so I plan to add faux windows (closed shutters) to the back of the house.
