The Antique House

Here is the progress of the house. I lightly painted it. Put on shutters and are about to install some new windows and trimmings. I will put some patina on it as a final touch.


Taking pictures in the living room. Guess what showed up in the mirror;)


Working on the dollhouse kitchen, the most important room in the house I think. I currently have it in my dining room. I do have a workroom but it is so nice to be with the rest of family:)

Lovely Christel. Yes I agree working in the kitchen sometimes can keep you in touch with the family. I don't have a work room it has always been my kitchen :)
Love your new project. It is such a treasure. Mini hugs!

Hi Christel, I'm loving it! I'm so happy that you haven't painted the front of the house too heavily...so many would be tempted to so!...I love the 'aged' appearance. I look forward to seeing 'ALL' the progress...I'm sure your kitchen will be a masterpiece!!
(I'm like Kim...'no work room' just work where ever I can...)
Regards, Linda x

Would you paint the shutters the same color as the door? Or would they stay white?

Christel Jensen said...

Hi
It sure was a found. I don't stumble across this everyday;) I am going to keep the shutters white, but they will have more definition when the patina comes on. Thanks for the comments:)
