Triang Decals

  I have been trying for a long time to find the best way to reproduce Triang Floral Decals.  It is impossible to find originals,  Two of my  houses had the flower decals.  So I managed to remove the individual decals using sticky vinyl. First I scanned the decals I had removed from a Triang house into my…

My Triang Restoration

Restoration – Below are links to the various Triang Dolls Houses I have restored with a few little tips and lots of pictures. Many of these dolls houses are well past there play by date, some just looking for a lick of paint and a freshen up, others had problems with wood worm and water…

The Little House

The Princess Elizabeth dolls house was a copy of a Welsh cottage style playhouse which had been presented to the Princess on her sixth birthday in 1932, by the people of Wales.     The house was erected in the gardens of the Royal Lodge at Windsor Castle and was called ‘Y Bwthyn Bach’ which…

Wallpaper

  Wallpaper for the No.42 House This is one of the wallpapers I have been working on for my Triang dollshouse No.42.     This is the room the wallpaper came from, it was very difficult to take it off in one piece and I had one reasonable size and lots of little bits.  …

Triang Spot-On Furniture Box

I have been working for a while now on reproducing Triang Furniture Boxes. I have a few, but they are very faded, and torn, but there is enough to make a good reproduction. My first effort was the Dining Room Chair Box. This box was in quite good condition, but as it was fixed along…

Christmas Crackers

Christmas Crackers are quite easy to make, the only problem I found when making them was that as they are so small, they would collapse when shaping. So as little tip I will pass onto you is to use *Extra Slim Cigarette Filters, to help keep the shape. For the outer wrapping of your Christmas…

Princess Kitchen

PRINCESS KITCHEN I have had a few thoughts about how to decorate and furnish this house. Furnishing with Triang furniture would just be impossible as the rooms are so big, and the furniture would look so small. I want to make it lived in with lots of bit and bobs around, as if someone has…

Kitchen Table [Green]

PRINCESS KITCHEN TABLE This is a table I have chosen for my Triang Princess Dolls house. It is probably not the style I would have chosen but the height against the kitchen units is about right. The table I liked was the same height as the kitchen units, but I felt that a lower one…

Pine Kitchen Floor

Kitchen Floor I was not quite sure what to use for a kitchen floor, a choice between tiles and floor boards. I tried to make kitchen floor tiles out of clay, but this was not successful at all, I just made a terrible mess. Fimo would have been better, but for such a large room…

Distressed Kitchen Base Units

KITCHEN BASE UNITS The rooms in this house are quite big, so it is not a good idea to use Triang furniture. So I am going to furnish each room in 12th scale furniture. I have various pine kitchen base units, to use in the Kitchen of my Triang Princess Doll House.   I want to make each piece individual…

Kitchen Sink Unit

Kitchen Sink The white porcelain kitchen sink I bought originally had black metal legs. I wanted to make a wooden stand for it, but my woodwork skills are not that good, so I altered a table and a small kitchen unit. I removed two of legs at one end of the table and the table…
