The furniture in the dollhouse was very lovely but my family are now living in the 1920s and they don’t want to have their home filled with dark Victorian furniture. They are modern thinking, artistic and creative folk. Their grown up daughter is thoroughly ‘with it’ and is influencing her family.
So, I painted their furniture with a good quality white acrylic paint.
Then when dry I went over with a mix of brown and white acrylic paint, for the sitting room furniture. A few detail lines added with a fine white marker.
I recovered the seat cushions and then set the table for tea.
Looks like a pretty tasty tea don’t you think?
The beds are a pale turquoise with detail added with white marker, the maid likes them and is smoothing the new bed linen with care. Young Edith Littleton is impressed with her new desk area for studying at, she hopes to go on to further education at college and needs to work very hard.
