And so another house begins….
This little beauty I got off Gumtree for the grand price of $20. It was filthy dirty, was missing two doors and was a bit roughed up inside. Unfortunately it was also missing a staircase and the one that it did have, was broken.
You can see the lovely glue on the wall joins.
A few coats of paint, some paper flooring and wallpaper and voila!
The flooring paper is an image from Shutterstock. I was leaning towards a white washed floor but my fussy customer (my 8 year old daughter) wanted these floors. Four trips to Officeworks to get them printed and they turned out pretty awesome. They were ModPodged on, which wasn’t great – definitely double sided tape works so much better. The black dot wallpaper is from MostlyMiniature and the roses were an image from Freepik that I turned into wallpaper.
After this, it was time to add some extra walls. On the attic level, I put in a wall so I could have a nursery and little girls room (at my daughter’s request of course!). This was just MDF board painted and glued in.
Then it was putting in a wall to create a bathroom and hallway.
Before is on the left and after is on the right.
So the basics are done. Now on to the fun stuff!!!
