Fires can be an interesting addition in a doll room. Barbie, Sindy and Gloria have all made many a fire over the years...
This is a rather fun fireplace originally in red (nice change from PINK). This was one of my first experiments and I hand painted it an off white colour. I will one day give this a bit of an upgrade as I've learnt a lot over the years. Not sure what at the moment hence it still as is!
My dad is a model train enthusiast (OO scale) and I have over the years had a lot of help from him and also been to many a model railway show where I have picked up some interesting items that I can re-purpose. Below is one of those items a railway arch that I have painted (again a long time ago) and I need to add some grouting and maybe a wash?
Below is a Sindy fire , I came in the cream and I repainted it to black. This is one of my favourite fires as it lights up. Unfortunately the bulbs don't work and I need to find replacements. While these fires are easy enough to still find…
I have a little bit of a thing for 'babies' Barbie and co babies that is. I also love prams/buggies/strollers or whatever! For some time I had wanted a mini pram like you see so much in human size these days. Imagine my excitement when I spotted the new Skipper Babysitter Inc pram, it looked (almost) perfect. As soon as I spotted one on Amazon I had to get it AND it was not silly expensive. The pram's come in yellow with a white baby and pink with a black Baby.
(Not my photo's)
For some reason the pink pram is very hard to find in England, but I did find one on Amazon. The height was good too and worked well with the taller IT dolls. As you can see I painted mine
So next the painting thing The base parts come apart pretty easy but the top peace (bucket) can not be taken apart. I wanted to paint the top of the bucket but leave the base grey. All the parts I did NOT want painted I coated with a couple of coats of school PVA glue
