... and made and painted a fence.Darias idea with thread. =) But I was eager to continue the big house, so this will have to wait some more =)
When I just decided something about the 1:12 house, I change my mind, again... I thought I could make a nice parquet floor by the popsicles. Just cut them and place them in squares...
But when I saw the result I was a bit disappointed.. This doesn't look like a beautiful livingroom floor, it looks like a terrace floor.. Not that it's anything wrong with that, but it was not the look I wanted...
Don't know if it would get better with a little paint, or if I should just come up with another idea..
Have to think about that floor a bit more.. So I moved on and when my husband was at home I finally got the courage and opportunity to try my new multi-tool =) (used it on the balcony to avoid lots of cleaning after ;) )
I thought sanding with the tool would spare my hands and go faster then by hand. And faster it is, but afterwards I got spasm in my hand ;) It vibrates a bit and I held it really tight so I wouldn't slip or drop it ;)
But I manage to sand all kitchen parts, I didn't do it perfectly, I just wanted to get rid of that shiny finish so that I can repaint them in a lighter colour.
My poor doll couldn't stand the mess, so she arranged the pieces again, even do everything in here is totally unfinished.. ;)
I have this bathroom with decor, I don't like the decor, so I thought I could sand it off with my multi-tool =) This is made in some kind of ceramics?! quite heavy and hard.
After a quite long while I manage to get rid of the most of the decor on the toilet. But it was very time consuming and hard to get it nicely done, so I will just paint the other pieces and hide the decor that way =) maybe it will look nice with the decor in the same colour as the rest (white that will be)
I think some new paint will cover the "scars" =)
But I'm glad I can open the toilet-lid now, that was almost impossible before..
The whole house is a mess, I'm glad I haven't installed the stairs so that my doll can go up stairs and see all this mess ;)
And speaking of paint... I wanted to paint this bookshelf in some nice bright colour, but I didn't have that much to choose from, so I got an idea to use nail polish =) I loved to paint my nails when I was younger, so I had lots of different nail polish, but I never use them any more, and they dries up, just like my paint... so I thought this could be a way to use one of them, but it was already a bit dry, and I don't know if I will have enough... =/ I will have to try to paint the rest another day, I let this dry on the balcony, it smells quite a lot...
And finally I found the perfect wallpaper in a drawer. Its a napkin, and it might be really hard to put it up on a wall, but if I glue it to a regular paper it might be easier?! I will have to try!
I would say I got quite a lot done this weekend even do we were off to my mum yesterday to celebrate mothers day =) My second mothers day as a mother to the worlds best child =)Take care
