I have put my Barton Furniture into my Triang No.62.

BartonHouse

A Barton & Co. began making dolls house furniture just after the Second World War in 1945, under the brand name of AB Toys.

In 1984 Barton and the Caroline’s Home brand were taken over by Lundby of Sweden. The production of the houses and furniture continued in the UK until the late 1980’s.

Barton Furniture is the perfect size for this house, I love the fact that it is all made out of wood.

You will probably have noticed the bird cage is at a rather jaunty angle, the cage is very distorted.  The people in the picture are quite small, but all have wire in, so they can be bent into position.

The furniture in this picture is a very pale pink, but it does not show up very well.

    What a fantastic job! I’m trying to restore my own 62 so this is very helpful. Great videos too! Could you let me know what green paint you used for the window frames and the roof please? Want to march the original colours if possible but not sure what would work. I was also wondering whether the best type of paint would be an acrylic matt? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you 🙂

      The paint I use for the window frames is used for painting Games Workshop models, the colour is Citadel Dark Angels Green [or if not available Caliban Green, as name has changed]. This paint is matt, but I also used a matt varnish which gives a nice finish. The roof is painted with a matt brick red paint, this is the hardest to get right. Get some tester pots, go with the colour you feel happy with. The next window frames I do, I think I will try Aerosol paint used for touching up cars. There are some nice greens for Jaguar and Range Rover cars, that would look good. Good Luck with your house…

    Wow very very nice, a wonderful job, I have a dolly mixture house awaiting a makeover after my gee bee house I am doing up for my grandaughter. My dolly mixture house roof has a split in the roof at the tape join, wondered the best way to reseal is, and then paint it red and black as it is now. Lynn

      Thanks for your kind comments. I use gummed paper parcel tape, which I find is just the right width. You can see an example here: Triang No.61.
