McKinley – the bedroom

I ran into a problem wallpapering the bedroom. First time around, there was a bubble and when I tried to fix it I ruined the paper along the back wall. Then I couldn’t get additional sheets of paper and had to wait to order more. They’ve been discontinued so getting them was not easy. THEN I applied a new piece of wallpaper on the back wall and some weird splotches seeped through. I think it’s caused by the glue I used (Yes glue) but I’ve never had this happen before. I have one sheet of paper left and am afraid to put it up because I don’t want the same thing to happen a second time.

So for now the bedroom wall is splotchy (you can’t see it in these pictures, but it’s very noticeable in real life). I will play with some of the wallpaper scraps to see if I can figure out what caused the splotches (maybe just spreading the glue too thickly?) before I try again.

Geoff’s mom gave me an HBS gift certificate for Christmas, so I splurged and bought these two Tiffany-style lamps.

The dresser drawers weren’t going together well so I glued the drawer fronts in place. Who bothers to open dollhouse drawers, anyway?!

The Mission rocker is a Take-A-Seat resin piece, but matches perfectly. I will cross stitch something to go in that little frame.

The pattern for the little rug came out of Pamela Warner’s Miniature Embroidery for the 20th Century Dolls’ House. I stitched a matching bedspread but haven’t quite finished it yet. I also still have to make the bedside tables.
