New Room Box

Well...technically an old, battered room box I gutted and remodeled. This room box is going to be sitting empty for a while, since I plan to gradually fill it with Halloween-inspired minis (vintage-cute Halloween, not scary Halloween), and the best ones can be a bit expensive!

Because of its small size, I decided to make the moldings myself.

Take a chair rail, a baseboard, some "window mullion" scraps from a previous build, and a balsa wood sheet...

Measure, cut, and glue carefully...

All done! 

(Note: the "paintings" in this room box are scaled-down copies of Black Apple prints. No one's ever brought this up with me, but I just want to put it out there: I support handmade artisans and encourage others to do the same. If you're copying someone's artwork for your dollhouse, help them make a living and buy a print or two. Long-dead and/or extremely wealthy artists don't need your money, but please remember these are very tough times for self-employed creative people.)


  1. Hi Anna, your panelling is well made. I am looking forward to seeing some updates about your bungalow too!!

    1. Thank you, Emily! I should be ready to post something soon...
