Looking through the window at Sarah and Neal's new kitchen
From another angle, the units are still to be painted
Ground for of house #2 and looking into the ground floor hospital. Not done anything much to these rooms this week
First floor of the hospital just fitted the ceiling (hence the clips)
On the second floor to the left the operating room, behind the stripy wall is the waiting room and on the right ICU. The walls are not fixed yet and some have decided to curve a little? Not sure how to stop this but I think they will be OK once the doors and windows are fitted and then I can make the walls more permanent?
Oops! call in the builders the ceiling is fulling down!!!!
Close up of the operating room. The phone is one of those speaker phones still awaiting the Telecom guy!
And with the surgeons out of the way, I've made the bed higher and longer. Covered some foam core with black shiny sticker back plastic. I also sprayed the pink bed table silver and I think it makes an OK table for the surgical instruments?
A couple of pic's of my spraying room. Well this is my study cleared out ready for the re build
If you interested in ready my other BLOG about my dolls and my family
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
