Well, a few more days have gone by, do I thought I’d post another entry here.
Last time, I mentioned the dollhouse kit that I need to build for my daughter. It’s a nice little kit, but it comes with some very thin plywood that tears out every so easily when punching it out of it’s frame… I’ve spent much time popping out the pieces and sanding the edges.
My wife bought some paint in the colors that we determined my daughter likes, but we still haven’t come up with the color scheme plan yet. I’m not really certain that the colors make for a good house scheme, but she likes ‘em, and she’s gonna get ‘em.
Anyway, I thought I’d throw up a post about it, and give y’all some pictures to look at, seeing as how noone seems to leave comments unless there’s pictures. hehehe.
Here’s the box the kit came in. The default color scheme should be helpful in trying to figure out what to do with my daughter’s colors.
Here’s the plans for the house. Nice step-by-step advice on how to get this thing together.
Here are the sheets of plywood before I started punching out the pieces.
Here’s some work-in-progress shots of taking out the pieces and sanding them.
It’s hard to get good help these days. Here’s my helper
Once I’m done sanding, it will be time to paint. I have plenty of blue tape to protect the glue-able surfaces, so I’m going to paint before assembling, as I think it will give a better finished project. I’ll post more pics when I get them.
