Finally Glued in Place!
Here we are! Finished at last! The only thing I have yet to glue on is the shop sign, which I want to paint so will leave it for now. I don't know why I put off gluing it for so long- I guess it was just the idea of commiting with glue is so scary first time round! Anyway, thanks to the help of my 16 year old brother, I think we did a pretty good job!
The hardest part by far, and I'm ashamed to say I have given up, was trying to screw minute screws in for the front door. Could we do it? No way! I even had a specialist pair of tweezers with a magnifying glass but we simply couldn't do it. So then I thought, 'well, I spend that much time trying to keep my other dolls' house door shut that I may as well glue this one in place instead!'. I haven't actually done this yet as I want to paint it but I reckon I will cheat. I occasionally make jewellery and nothing has ever been as fiddly as those screws! If anyone does have any suggestions though- I'd love to hear them!
