Tiles Are Nearly Finished!


What do you think? I'm definitely getting there! I need to cut the tiles to fit around the edges but in order to do that, I'm going to need to find someone who has a Stanley knife so that I can do it safely haha.

I did have a job getting the tiles to stick over the wire which feeds into the light in the room below (which will one day become the kitchen!). I'd scoured a track in the wood for the wire to lay in so it was flat and secured it with a bit of cellotape but the tiles still didn't like that. I got them to stick eventually by placing a heavy book in the room whilst they dried but unfortunately they don't lie as flat as the rest of them.

You'll know my style by now. I'm a 24 year old female with next to no DIY skills so I did what I thought best- and that was to put the bath there to cover them up! In other areas of my life, I'm a perfectionist but when it comes to dolls house and DIY skills, I simply accept that I'm not perfect but I think it makes for a more personalised house and I feel proud of myself when I finish a room.

Next jobs:

  • cut tiles to size
  • skirting
  • coving 

Have a lovely, fantastic Christmas!


  1. How cuuute! At first I thought they were real rooms! Adorable! :) xx

  2. Thank you! It is a slow process building houses because of the cost and time restraints but I do love the effect at the end! :-)
