One step closer to the fun stuff!

Every room in the house, except for the Sunny C room, has been primed with gesso and prepared for new fabulousness.

I continue to find more items from the thrift and antique stores. The table and rocker are donated by Mark's Aunt. They were hers when she was young.

These little glasses were found in the bottom of the bin at the Goodwill Outlet. A VERY lucky find considering the chaotic mess there!

Looks like we need to fumigate before remodeling!

One thing I am learning a lot about is scale. Uh, don't think this bed will work!

The most common dollhouse furniture is 1:12 scale (1 inch represents 1 foot). The Lundby is 1:18. If I wanted the house to be proportioned, it would be a bit tougher to find furnishings. Personally, I like the look of the 1:12 scale furniture in the space. Sure, you can fit fewer pieces in, but it is easier to play with and move around. Plus, it gives it a more Surreal quality. Some pieces, like a bed, will probably need to be custom made. This was a fun find! It is a metal table with cupids at the base and real glass!

Here you can see the table with the rug that will go in this space. It was created by Ellie's Grandmother, Pat. She is working on a few more for the house and possibly some furniture!
