Midtown Bungalow Dollhouse Exterior Lighting

I was trying to completely finish the exterior before showing these pictures but I did a lot of work over fall break and decided to show more of my progress. Here is the original link to the first post of the Bungalow Dollhouse when I started. After that post it was knocked over and sat in pieces in a corner until now, everything you see now was done this past week. I did finish the interior lighting, stained all wood floors, cut all and installed some wallpaper, Aleene's Tacky spray is my new dollhouse favorite! I don't know why I didn't think to use it before, I had it all the time. I could have finished but I got tired and had to stop. The interior and finished exterior photos will come later. UPDATE: HEY I FINISHED THE EXTERIOR HERE IS THE LINK

On another note "the boot" came off Friday after a long 6 weeks of healing (just stretches everyday, no more cute shoes for life apparently) and now I have "mild" arthritis in my knee on the same leg (Bi-Flex) and my dad fixed the lights in the townhouse (wires too close together) so they are back working.
"Hey come on up and take a look"
 (I just love that tricycle ornament)

Still missing trim, window glass, roof unfinished
Blue sky  porch ceiling to fool the "bugs"
I added the wood on top and bottom of the railing
(I borrowed the ferns from the townhouse balcony)
I already had the porch furniture
another ornament
glass to the front door on the bench
(leg lamp ornament)

  1. I saw the thumb nail in my Google reader and thought it was a real person standing outside a real home. Lovely. I love the frog sand pit but I love the picture of the house all lit up even more. Beautiful work =0)

  6. Your bungalow is perfect and looks so cozy! I'm so intimidated by lighting, but it makes such a difference.
