Porch and door...

Today I tried to attach the entrance door of the Orchid in a way that it is possible to open and close it.
First I used hinged joints but it was almost impossible to nail them into the wood of the house. The hinge joints were unsteady and I removed them again.
Later I tried to use some fabrics as joints but I could not glue the fabric to the wood....
However I glued the door fix to the house so there is no possibity to open and close it :-(
For the next dollhouse I will buy a moveable door and use it instead of the Greenleaf door.



I used a chair to keep the door knob in place after adding the glue.

 
The door is now fixed and a little bit open.
I think this looks a little bit more hospitable!
 
 
 
The outside of the house at the moment...

  2. Hi Lina, I hope you can fix the problem of that door. I would choose of readymade doors, if I had bought a new dollshouse. I have made a dollshouse myself, so I haven't this problem :D!!
    It is great to see you have 10 followers, congratulations!
    Hugs, Ilona

    1. Hi Ilona!

      As you suggested I will buy a readymade door for the beacon hill. I didn't start to build it yet because I wanted to try some techniques with the Orchid.
      The door of the Orchid is glued to the house :-(
      But I think it looks quite nice!

      Hugs, Lina

  8. Hi Lina! I have worked with the Orchid many times. I always add extra trim pieces around the door so I can screw in the hinges. You just have to double the thickness of the door trim and it will hold the screw. You can also cut the screws with pliers. That way they don't stick out. I love your decorating style I saw on your other posts. It's very sweet! Have fun with this one.
    hugs♥,
    Caroline
