Part Two of the Glen House Renovation
While cleaning and renovating the dolls house I found this name in the attic. Unfortunately, there was no date included. Once I found this, I decided to call it the "Glen House".
I cleared away the stair steps in the bathroom, saving them to be placed in another room. I also covered the window, and decided that there would be a fake door on the outside of the building, but not in the bathroom. That way it seems as though the house has an entrance on the front of the building.
I took the bathroom fixtures that Glen built and renovated them.
Before and After.
The sink has a faux marble top, and mat board was added to create the doors. Tiny beads were used for the knobs. The sink is a plastic cover, and adding a little paper clay softened the inside into more of a bowl shape. The faucet is a metal hook, and the handles are also tiny beads.
The toilet was softened with paper clay to make the seat a little more inviting. I added a piece of bass wood for the tank, and added the paper clay to fill it in, and create a more standard type of tank.
The tub needed to be the same marble-like look. Painting it with acrylics, and a nice gloss finish. The hook again made for a nice faucet, and the handles are the backs of earrings.
I have a tiny bit of a real sponge added to the edge of the tub, and the sink has a lovely soap bottle, also made from beads.
Here is the bathroom freshly painted, and new flooring placed. The back window no longer exists, and in its place an art-deco design (earrings) on display. A mirror is above the bath tub. On the right is a fake door, going into the next room. A modest dividing half wall, with toilet paper and plant is made from foam board, and a super cool paper with oak-like affect. It looks so real, love that stuff, paper from a scrap book store! The Renaissance portrait above the toilet, enhances the colors used throughout the room.
The rug with the kittens playing was a purchase, and the plant that one of the kittens is so intent on attacking is one that I put together. Mini plants are a lot of fun to make. The one on the half wall is also one that I put together.
This was so much fun, and the rest of the "Glen House" waits to be renovated....yippee!
