My New Dollhouse

Shah and I have started working on our fourth dollhouse. It started out as a Victorian Cottage Jr. Kit by Real Good Toys. We finished the floor with a Dark Cherry gel stain. For the walls, we used English Rose patterned wallpaper and used glaze to give it a rich and satin finish. But when it came to borders, I just could not find the right one to go with the gorgeous wallpaper. So, I decided to create my own.

I printed out strips of black and white border, fitted them to the top and bottom of the walls, and glazed them for the glass-like finish. Then I created a faux stone-work finish inspired by a Nepalese trinket box my mother used to have. The most fun part, which unfortunately I could not catch with my digital camera, is that the stones glow in the dark! This was achieved by overlaying the pattern with glow-in-the-dark paint. Tell me, do you like my Nepalese inspired borders?

I DO love your borders. Not only are they beautiful, they are imaginative and beautifully crafted! Bravo! Rhonda (Lexington, KY)
