under the stairs

Here is something else I've been working on in the dollhouse, I've been making a cupboard under the stiars.

My dollhouse is the "helena" kit from Euromini's, but while I was planning and designing how it should look, I became ever more unsatisfied with the entire house. The way it openend, the lack of windows and doors, the redicoulus bathroom-room (if you walk up the stairs you'd end up in the middle of the bathroom, now who would want that!?). There where all kinds of things that annoyed me about the house.

And so I'm altering almost everything, from adding windows (at least 6 of them up until now!) to placing many extra walls and doors.
The good news is, I'm starting to like the house more and more with every little project.

This cupboard is one of those alterations. I made a little light in there and the door can actually open and close. I'm still looking for a suitable doorhandle. And I'm now working on the banisters, then the kitchen will finally be finished, ready to play with the details! ;)

another update

This is how the windows in the living room turned out. I'm very glad I did it, it looks much beter than before I think.
The furniture still has to be painted and the cushions on the couch have to be sewn, but the couch itself is finished.
For the couch I used EM9649 from euromini's and took it completely appart, to redecorate it.

a small update

I haven't posted in almost two months! That is rediculous! So here are a few teasers to show you what I've been up to in the last two months, besides school! I wil post more pictures soon (or at least that's what I'm planning to do XD)

The daffodils in the picture above where a (bonny lavish?) kit I bought at a fair, they where very easy and nice to make.

Since I already glued my dollhouse all together, making windows in it is a very unholy little job! First I draw the inside shape of the window on the wall, then I drill several holes within the lines, and then... lots and lots of sawing. The working stage looks so unprofessional the way I do it! XD
But in the end it's worth it! Putting in these windows was one of the best decisions I made for this dollhouse! It makes it so much more realistic and allows a lot more light into the rooms. I'll show you the finished pictures next time because if I spill all the beans at once, I don't have anything left to post ;)
