Dollhouse #2: Front Facade

Shuddering with indecision… does this colonial saltbox house need shutters? I just laid shutters down for this show & tell photo, along with window boxes, to get an idea of what it would look like. Opinions appreciated! Do you think it needs shutters, shutters and window boxes, just window boxes, or nothing at all?

This house will NOT be a house, per se, as it will not be furnished as a dollhouse… keeping exactly what it will be under wraps for now. Let’s just say this house was re-purposed for a business.

I love the “pale daffodil” used to paint the clapboard siding, think it makes the stained wood pop, much more so in person than what this photo captured. It won’t be long before the walls are raised. Yes, it is much easier to paint inside and out, plus install windows and such with the walls laying flat on the table.

I still haven’t decided what color to paint the crown molding. Inside will have white walls and white ceilings, so white would do but it sounds a little boring. I’m thinking maybe a hint of color, a pale tint of blue or green, maybe lavender?

Well, thanks for reading & happy St. Pats!
