Ah, Saturdays. Every day should be Saturday! I started off with a delicious cup of McDonald's coffee and a Zone Bar. Don't you love how the peanut butter chocolate Zone Bar is basically just a candy bar with some extra protein? I digress. I wanted to show you the first couple of things I've done to the gigantic dollhouse. After my husband sanded and primed it, I painted the whole thing with craft paint. Specifically, Folk Art paint by Plaid. The exterior and roof are a soft yellow called Lemonade (826), and the eaves, base and window moulding are Wicker White (987). Bottom right, which will be the living room/den, is Parchment (450), but I will be adding large vertical tone-on-tone stripes with Metallic Champagne (675). Bottom left, kitchen, is Soft Apple (526). Middle left, master suite, is Dove Gray (708). Middle right, bathroom, is Jamaican Sea (320). I covered the back wall in THREE POUNDS (yes, three pounds) of flat glass marbles. I used E6000 to attach them one at a time. It was a pain in the rump, but it looks really cool.
Top right, kids' room/playroom, is also Wicker White, but I will be adding some stripes and "artwork." I'm not set on the plan yet. Top left, nursery, is Baby Pink (821). I'm hoping to finish all the painting, including a zillion touch-ups, and douse the whole thing in a couple of coats of Mod Podge by the end of the month. Thanks for looking and for all the wonderful comments and emailed suggestions for this project!
