Craftsman bungalow vignette – finished!

With the porch finished, all I had left to do on the bungalow were a few pieces of trim. But first, as I often do as a project nears completion (see here and here), I went down a rabbit hole of destruction that took a little work to climb back out of. It all started… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow vignette – finishing the porch

Back in June, I started the porch on the Craftsman bungalow vignette. Then I realized I should finish the interior windows and paneling before attaching the porch, while I could still easily put the vignette face-down on the table. Here’s where I left off. I positioned the porch so there would be the same amount… Keep reading »

Cross-stitched ginkgo rug and Craftsman chairs from a kit

Today I learned that the Japanese tree with the fan-shaped leaves is spelled ginkgo, not ginko. Who knew?! I cross-stitched a ginkgo rug to go in the Craftsman bungalow vignette. The rug is approximately 2 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, stitched over one on 36(?) count fabric. The question mark is because I thought that was… Keep reading »

Stained glass windows with Gallery Glass and a Sakura Glaze pen

I decided to add stained glass to the two small windows in the Craftsman bungalow. The last time I made stained glass windows, for the Victorianna, they were printed out on a transparency sheet that I then painted over with Gallery Glass paint. Even with the Gallery Glass adding a wavy glass effect, these still… Keep reading »

Firescreen mystery solved!

I guess I didn’t do good job of sleuthing before my last post, because the firescreen mystery has already been solved thanks to a few reader tips and Google. Here’s one in the background of a photo of a Ginger Wyatt vase from eBay (from Pinterest): Interesting coincidence, but it doesn’t prove that Ginger Wyatt… Keep reading »

The mysterious firescreen

Just now I was clicking through old Ron Rhodes auctions on Live Auctioneers, because why not, and I came across this familiar-looking firescreen… If you read my post about creating a stained glass cabinet for the Craftsman bungalow vignette, it’ll look familiar to you too! The title of this lot was Kummerow & Wyatt Dollhouse… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow – right window paneling & stained glass cabinet

I can’t remember where or when I got this Mission-style thingie. I’m not even sure what it is… probably a 1:12 firescreen? But I’ve had it for a while, and when I started working on the Craftsman bungalow vignette I pulled it out thinking I could do something with it. Update July 15, 2022: I… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow – paneling around the left window

Now that the windows and door are glued in along the front wall of the bungalow, I can add paneling. (If you need to get caught up, this post shows how I created the paneling for the side walls.) Because the paneling on this wall is broken up by the window and door trim, I… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow – starting the porch

The Craftsman bungalow vignette came with a 7″ x 3″ x 3/4″ block of wood to use as the porch. It also came with precut railing pieces, which I lay between the posts to see how they’re supposed to be spaced. Centering the porch on the door would look like this. This kit is a… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow window trim

The windows and door I’m using for my 1:24 scale Craftsman bungalow vignette are Real Good Toys components that I bought off eBay. I’ve never seen these available for sale individually, but they match the components in the (now discontinued) East Side Townhouse as well as the Queen Anne (which is only available in 1:12… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow porch roof

Moving right along on the Craftsman bungalow, the triangular front of the porch roof doesn’t fit snugly under the roof pieces. I could resolve this by adjusting the left side of the roof (which isn’t glued in yet) to meet the angle of the triangle, but then the roof pieces wouldn’t meet up at the… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow vignette — roof & shingles

Last week I posted about wallpaper and wainscot in the Craftsman bungalow. I’ve been working on the roof and shingles in parallel. The last thing I did before putting the bungalow aside for a year was to glue on the roof. At the time, it looked like this. And this is what I’m working toward.… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow vignette — wallpaper and paneling

More than a year ago (ouch!), I put the Craftsman bungalow vignette aside because I didn’t have the right wallpaper. When I left off, I had sided and painted the exterior. And I made a nice hardwood floor inside. I also glued on the roof, but I’ll save that for a later post. Before gluing… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow vignette — siding & paint

I have spent most of the month working on my annual half scale swaps and a gift for a friend’s new baby — neither of which I can post about yet — but I just realized I had a bunch of pictures on the camera from when I added siding to the Craftsman bungalow vignette… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow floor

One of the first steps in Debbie Young’s bungalow vignette instructions is to complete the flooring before gluing the house together. Initially I ignored that, because I’m used to adding flooring once the house is assembled. But then I dry fit the pieces and discovered there’s a gap below the bottom of the door. I… Keep reading »

Craftsman bungalow vignette in 1:24 scale

For the past few months I have been working on a bookcase for my office. I bought three of these unfinished bookcases and stained them with Minwax Aged Oak gel stain. This took a lot longer than staining dollhouse furniture! I dragged it out over a month and a half, doing a few pieces each… Keep reading »
