Part Three of the Queen Anne Renovation
Welcome back to the Queen Anne dollhouse.
Here is a photo of the inside before the renovation. The top floor was reinforced with fiber board, to give it some strength. The walls were removed through out the house. I wanted a more open concept in this home.
The stair steps were removed so they could be cleaned up and repainted. They were in a sorry-sloppy state, but well worth saving.
Here you can see the steps put back into the house at a different angle then originally done. The steps look much more grand this way, and really show off the unique angle of the landing half way up. I covered the steps and landing with a wood look that matches the floors, that I decided to use through out the house.
Here is the house, nearly done. I have since made some changes to the furniture layout. There is the Lady of the house, up in the room, next to the bathroom. She decided that room would make a more private bedroom, then the one on the floor below. I agreed, and set to work.
I will get my new photos down loaded soon, then I can show you the rest of the house, "up close". This was such a fun project. I located some lovely portraits of Queen Anne, and placed those in the house as well.
Until next time, smile on! Audrey
