Yes, it’s been a long time since my last post. I’ve been busy, and doing other things, including working on the mini house rather than posting about it. I’ve posted some of the progress on my personal Facebook page, and also my Minis Under Construction Facebook page.

I’ve finished the kitchen peninsula, except for creating or purchasing and installing the faucet. You won’t be able to see any of this work from most views into the dollhouse, unfortunately, but I had lots of fun doing it anyway.

Here’s a photo:

You can see the dishwasher, “stainless steel” apron front sink, and microwave.

Below is the “stainless steel” sink after painting but before installation.

Below is one of the doorways showing the jamb and threshold installed. They have a light stain on them. There will be trim installed around the doorway openings after the doors are constructed, fitted and installed.

And here is one of the doors being built. As you can see, it has a wooden frame with an acrylic “glass” making up the bulk of the door. The paper lying on top of the acrylic is a pattern I am going to use to create art “glass” in the door. I have window frosting paper which is sticky. I will cut this out along the lines of the pattern, leaving pattern of clear glass in the frosted field. I think this will look very nice.

I’m expecting there may be some difficulty doing this especially working with such small cut out areas. We’ll see how this goes. I just don’t want either fully frosted “glass” or clear “glass” and I liked this pattern the best of the ones I found online. Mine probably won’t be exactly the same but it will be similar.

I went shopping at JoAnn’s for notions to use for the shower head and the door knobs and escutcheon plates. Did not have much luck with pieces for escutcheon plates. I will probably have to cut my own from aluminum sheeting. We’ll see. Maybe a store with a better jewelry findings department, or a hardware store, would be better.

I did end up with a bunch of jewelry finding pieces that together will make a nice shower head.
