I'm embarrassed to admit to all of you amazing miniaturists that I didn't build my house, nor can I say that it is vintage. It's the Real Good Toys EasyBuild Classic Colonial with the porch addition. (I'm trying to say that as proudly as I can.) As in, you can build it in an hour. Did I? Eh, nope. I didn't even do that! I bought it assembled. I was terrified of jumping into building a house! However, I did break down and wire it for electricity, and I've changed out the flooring. I'm in the process of covering the walls now.
You see, I've got some kind of mental block about wallpaper. I've never been a big fan of it in big houses, although I must say it looks great in the mini houses I've looked at. I'm just very indecisive! So, I've started papering my little house in solid colors. Yes, I know... it's kinda' boring, but give me time and I'll make a decision on some cute wallpaper! I need to take baby steps, that's all. The fact that I actually wired my house is HUGE. All that fussing, and then that tapewire was amazingly easy!
The picture above is of my hasty application of tapewire! The instructions said to draw the lines, and well, I didn't and it shows. :) You can see the new flooring in the pictures. I think I'm going to like it. The picture doesn't show it, but since taking this picture I've covered the kitchen and room above with white paper, and the big bedroom in blue. The blue is a bit dark, so I may do chair rails with another (lighter) wallpaper on the top.
I guess until I make those decisions, I'll continue to take more baby steps... baby steps... baby steps...
