I have recently uncovered in the attic the dollhouse-size castle made for our son when he was a little boy.
It’s been in the attic for 20 years. Now that I’ve rediscovered it I’m going to try and refurbish it in a series of steps since it is in rough shape.
I started with the plywood base which is painted blue and mostly unseen except for the “water” in the mote and the grassy border.
The edge of the base had splintered so I removed it.
I cut (mitered) and painted screen door bead to replace the trim.
The trim was painted on all sides then nailed around the entire edge with wire nails.
Once the base was cleaned and trimmed I decided to set up the entire castle.
The water in the mote is just visible at the entrance.
I am not sure this is the correct set-up although I don’t know how else it would go together.
I’m sure I have an old photo in the albums in the attic that would help.
Do you start whimsical projects to keep you from progressing on real work?
