Building My Own Dollhouse Window

I have been putting this project aside for the longest time...and finally yesterday (after my workout), I started on it. One of the reasons was, I have been waiting for materials to arrive and I had been busy with the orders that came in (Thank YOU all!).

I actually bought a dollhouse miniature window, but when it arrived, I realized it was way too big. I consoled myself that this mistake costs me about $4 only. I then started studying it and was decided to build one on my own. :)

The past 1 week, before I commence on my project, I started formulating a game plan in my head. I typically visualize the steps and process as to how I would build it. When the idea became good enough (I ran it through like a few times), I decided it was time to Just Do It....

The walls were really simple enough. I made the calculations and started working on my window. It was exciting and really fun. Although it's not painted yet, I am really pleased. And I also hope it gives inspiration to you guys out there who are also like me, who are not trained in architectural design, or DIY or engineering...that it is possible to give it a try and make something with your own hands. :)

Going to work on the interior window frame next.

Actually I have to confess I am dying to paint it...I love painting. 

As for the exterior walls, I have not nail down the look and feel of the exterior wall yet, but that would be exciting too. Just so many ideas!

Can't wait to get on with the interior decorating!
