Usually you are not supposed to make posts about your unsuccessful experiment on your blog, but I am doing it to share my pain with you, :)))
This weekend I had a little bit of time to work on my new dollhouse. I didn't like plain white color and really wanted to make this house old looking. No, not haunted, just with a little bit trace of history on it.
First of all, windows on the sides were removed.
I painted bay windows, the trim of the house and columns dark blue and crackled them...
...and then I went wild! I painted the house blue! Disaster! My poor Vanessa doesn't want to talk to me anymore! My sweetheart and my son laughed all day. I've got support only from Nataly, my little princess, she came to me, gave me a hug and said that the house looks unusual and that's why it is beautiful.
After a while I decided that I am done experimenting with the paint and I always liked dollhouses with bricks and stones and I've never done it before. I made up my mind to cover the house with bricks!
I made bricks from the clay that I purchased with a huge discount when our local Ben Franklin craft store went out of business, added some texture paint
and painted it
What happened next and how house looks now I will tell you in my next post!
