It has all been cleared now so I can finally give my collection some love!
Something I have been working on for a while is the repaint and complete redecoration of Orchard Cottage. Currently I have only finished the upper room of the home, but I thought I would share some pictures!
I didn't take any proper pictures of the inside but here is the cottage all taped up before the repaint!
And there is the cottage after the exterior repaint! So glad to see all the yellow gone.
To give an idea of what the interior looked like inside before, I found this picture of one on eBay:
I painted the ceiling white and then painted the beams "wood-textured". I also painted the floor the same colour. Makes it so much more traditional and quaint!
I wallpapered it in a faded-style Cath Kidston wallpaper and made new bedding for the bed as the original really didn't match the walls!
The Tomy bathroom is just so cute - I love the fact that the toilet and bath are ceramic
I am very happy with the end result! Now I just need to hurry up and finish the downstairs so a family can finally move in :)
