Lilliputian Book Store

Posted by Cheryl Ufnowski on

One of the last workshops I did before closing Jeepers brick and mortar location was a miniature book store. In this class we created a sandwich sign, magazine rack, check-out counter, a large bookcase, wood display, and of hundreds of books to fill the shelves in a Houseworks Street of Shops kit. Of course, we also built, finished, and decorated the store front and its interior as well. Here are a few photographs of the project taken at various points during the final stages of assemblage (and while I was planning lighting installation).

It is an early 20th C. Victorian house."  My reply:  I would categorize your dollhouse as 1" (1:12) scale. I'm [...]

From Homely to Homey!

Dollhouse aficionados often fall into different camps when it comes to "vintage" dollhouses.  Some love the resulting character (age, wear and tear) of a dollhouse that shows it's been loved through the decades or may have spent some time tucked away in an attic or basement.  Others feel the need to renovate and redecorate the scarred [...]
