Handmade Barbie House out of 70's Speakers - ROOF Progress
See that photo? Let me tell ya, if you guessed, "having to glue tiny dollhouse shingles piece by piece onto a roof" as one of the top 5 things I will NEVER do again; you guessed RIGHT :)
I wanted scalloped shingles for my roof. Lowe's didn't have any - Home Depot didn't either. (frown)
I ventured to Hobby Lobby and found scalloped dollhouse shingles for 9.99 a bag. I had a 40% off coupon so got one cheaper, the other I paid the full price for. - Didn't care, just wanted to finish this, Christmas is in a few days! :/
So I went home, broke out my Elmer's Carpenter's Wood Glue and started the pain staking process of hand gluing each and every shingle.
OH. MY. GOSH.
5 hours later (spread out over the last two nights)...
It is now 1:30 am and I just finished spray painting it pink! (Left over spray paint from her ceiling fan revamp project I did a year ago).
I just need to add the back for the attic portion, paint the interior walls tomorrow (well technically tonight) - and then I will lay down the fake dark hardwood flooring. I AM so thrilled!! :D
To read more on this project and see how it started off as old 70's wooden speaker boxes, please click here, and read the list of blogs in that thread.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have the season finale of American Horror Story to watch off DVR :)
