Here is the Victorian dollhouse on which my husband and I are working. The first photo shows a window. There are 15 double hung windows- a real labor of love for my husband!
I am starting with the library and have begun to plan it, buying pieces here and there that resonate with me. The other photos show a piece of original miniature art made by Jim Coates, a rug and books.
The artwork's frame is cast in hard resin and the center piece is brass. The rug is machine woven, and I made the books myself using reduced illustrations I purchased online. I cut, folded and glued, using card stock for some of the backing. I coated the cover with tacky glue as it gives the paper a sheen. I also used a gold pen to make gilt page edges and a brown ink/stamp pad to age the book appropriately.
I forgot to mention the floor! It can be seen in photos two, three and four. It is real wood and is a sheet that I'll be adhering onto the floor of the library.
