The base has been sanded, and the wallpaper removed. As I had to buy a whole can of green spray paint to do the window frames, it seemed a good idea to use it on the base of the house.
The house has been masked off along the edges of the rooms, and then covered with paper to protect the rest of the house. [I knew I would find a use for that awful wood chip wallpaper.] This is a very messy process, especially when I am involved.
The spray paint I used was made by ‘Plasti Kote’, the colour was Forest Green. It is meant to be used on metal, but worked well on the wood, it was easy to apply giving an even coat.
As you can see from the picture above painting is now complete, inside and out. It has taken me a long time and many coats of Soft Cream Silk Paint.
Very slowly, this lovely little house is coming back to life. As shown in the pictures above the rooms have been painted, but I was not happy with the finish on the walls. They were a bit rough, so I bought some coloured card, the result has given a much better finish.
