Progress is being made on the house I am giving to my great niece, Brae.
When I started to re-do the house I figured all I really needed to do was just re-paper the bedroom to something more fun - kid like, and paint the exterior purple.
While painting the exterior, I noticed the paper stone foundation was starting to peel away.
Truthfully, I could have re-glued it down.
Eh - I will just peel it all off and use the Make It Stone paint.
House wasn't very secure.
Bedroom in progress of make-over
I used scrapbook paper for wallpaper - which tears easily when you try to apply it. To prevent that from happening I put a coat of Mod Podge on it.
The papers did not match exactly, so the seam is visible.
Just need to finish papering the half wall.
I removed the bathroom set. Brae would probably want to rearrange the pieces.
I am hoping to match paint to the paper where the wallpaper pulled off.
Why do I only have the precut trim pieces for the right side?
Living room before
I like using towels for carpet. The flat part of the towel makes a great stair runner.
All that work on the runner and you can't even see it!
Once I add the last pieces of trim, spray the roof and foundation the house will be good to go.
Next week my mom and I are heading down to VA to pick up my daughter.
Do you know what/who is on the way back?
Lori and her girls from Happily Ever After!
I am going to have to force myself to make a visit.
