Thanks for bearing with me. I wanted to share with you my latest project. Its from a kit by petite properties.
I have made their kits in the past. The reason I like them so much is that they are laser cut so all the pieces fit together exactly.
I started by assembling the main body of the house to see how it went together. I kept the pieces in place using masking tape.
While the pieces were together I used my pencil to carefully mark where they met so I knew where not to stick any wall paper or flooring paper. I prefer to paper these small kits before assembly as its easier to access.
I started with the flooring. I printed some I had found online and stuck it to the floor using a glue stick.
Then I flipped it onto the back and cut around the base piece of MDF using a craft knife.
At this point I realised I had not left the gaps for sticking I should have so tried to cut them into the parquet paper on the left. I messed it up... doh! So I replace it with some tiled effect paper instead.
I chose some wall paper from some scrap booking papers. You can find suitable patterns in the 6x6 scrapbook paper books.
I used them to cover the interior of the left porch side of the cottage. I did it the same way as I did the flooring. The largest wall needed covering on both sides.
I started to assemble the left side of the cottage using clamps and Lego to ensure it stayed square.
That's all for today. Check back to see my progress...
