« Part 2: Making the internal stairs Part 3 of DH Dolls house series Part 4: The cost of minaturisation »

With all the walls complete I started painting everything.

first off sanding sealer was applied

then all the internal walls were done

I must add a thank you to,
Elaine Duncan
The Paint Place Cannon Hill.

Elaine and her brother provided valuable paint advice on timber stain for the floors.
After about three trips in one day to the shop and experimenting with various finishes the floors looked great

I found that painting such small walls and areas like the WC which was only 65mm wide proved challenging as most rollers are 75mm+ minimum size.

So some experimental band sawing was required on the 75mm rollers to get them down to 55mm + the handle width had to be taken into consideration as well.
