I would love to build one of these for my daughter. Great colors and design. Do you always fully assemble your pieces before painting? Possibly a stupid question, but I’ve only build a couple painted projects so far and not positive of the correct sequence.

Because I could only attach 6 pics a few were left out. I actually finished this doll house before painting but I painted it before putting the back peice on. That made it easier to reach the front and back sides of the interior. I then painted the back peice before installed it. I also painting the back of the back peice after filling nail holes and sanding.

No I didn’t have any issues other than getting free time to start and finish it. I just used birch plywood and some edging since I knew I was painting it. I I did use some wood primer before painting to be sure no wood patterns showed through. It’s great to make something for our kids, for our kids to know we made it for them and for them to keep it.
