Mostly working on frontage. Repaired the wires the cats dragged out. Touched up the paint and paper the cats scratched, added gold and started on the balcony strip over doors and windows.

I'm glad you are liking the new frontage. The covering on this house is wallpaper. I splashed out on a whole roll because I had to cover a large house. I covered this smaller one too so that they can sit next to each other in a street scene. Everything else is acrylic paint.


Very unusual and effective Debbie, I'm looking forward to following its progress...

That's a brilliant idea with the bubble wrap Debbie, painted gold it looks very baroque and suits the extravagant door perfectly. Can you tell us a bit more about the unusual black facade?

Hi Zoe - yes the cat has an ASBO! You should see what's left of the Christmas tree. The windows came with another dolls house which I altered so they were spare. The door I copied from the same house and made it up from cardboard and bubble wrap. The balconies are just card but I want to add some gold behind them to highlight them a bit more.

You need a restraining order on that cat, Debbie! LOL The doors and windows are lovely, did you make them or did they come as part of the shop? The gold on the doors is very effective.
