Follow the building progress of my Mountfield dolls house from the Dolls House Emporium.

This is my second dolls house; the first one was built from a cheap kit bought from Ebay and completed about eight years ago. Although my friends enjoyed poking their noses in through the windows to see what was inside, I just had a feeling I could do an awful lot better.

This is house number two; my attempt at improving upon house number one. I hope you enjoy it.

Kitchen Units

The day I made the kitchen units up was the day that my partner borrowed my camera to go to a charity salsa do, so I don't have pictures of them as I was going along.  I spent an entire day working on them though (eleven hours I think!) and they look fabulous now.  Glued, painted, sanded, painted, waxed, and some of the handles put on...

I couldn't resist just placing a couple of the base units in the kitchen to get a sneak preview of the room.
Then I dedicated yesterday evening to finishing off the units, gluing them all into place and tiling with more mosaic tiles bought from Hobbycraft.
 The tiling has started.
 The tiling all finished.

I was originally going to have a wall unit above the base unit on the left, but I decided that it might look a bit crowded and so I've left it.  I may put a plate or pan rack above instead.  The fridge freezer has been ordered and will go just beyond the unit on the left.
I also have a few accessories on their way; a kettle, toaster and microwave.  I'm sure that filling it with all the stuff a proper kitchen would have, will just finish it off perfectly.

Just have to say thank you again to for the wonderful kitchen kit.

Thank you MWL, I'm really pleased with it. Can't wait to fill it with bits and pieces for that truly authentic touch!
