One thing I dislike doing in dollhouses is painting all the moulding and trim. Dentil moulding is particularly annoying because of the teeth.

Sounds comical but true:

dentil

You have to get the brush between all those little teeth or bare wood will show (esp once you glue it to the wall) and it will look awful. So small brush, paint, slide between each one. Tedious.

But it’s done and glued in the music room, so yay. Now that I have the kitchen mostly done I’m going back and putting on finishing touches to the other rooms that I either was too bored to do at the time or didn’t have the materials for.

Life as a miniaturist is not all glam.
