This is one I got off Craigslist several years ago, with mold issues, so I had to tear out all the interior walls and have yet to replace them. I love the exterior detail and refuse to part with it, so my family just shake their heads (spouse) and roll their eyes (daughter) and shrug their shoulders (son) and wait for the next thing to happen.
Anyway, I believe the style is intended to be Brooklyn Brownstone, so the exterior surface needs to be refinished and I definitely need to subdivide the rooms. Also I'm going to make wainscoting for the walls.
So, I have some Tomy Smaller Homes and Gardens furniture that I have collected over the years, and I recently purchased another lot on ebay. This one, as a matter of fact:
|Forgot to add the chimney for most of the photos!|
|Has white plastic woman, missing white plastic man tho'.|
|This is actually a smaller scale than I intended.|
|so I think I'll be selling this one.|
Later that day, the guy with the free 70's house emailed me back and suggested I come get the house. So I did. It's huge! Took up the whole back seat of my car. But I love it. I call it Henry's house because that's the name of the guy who built it.
|This is now residing where the Brooklyn was.|
|It came with a ton of melissa & doug furniture|
|It doesn't have a roof, will have to remedy that.|
|I put a cloth over it to protect it from the sun|
|all the windows and doors are great!|
Then I got home from that trip and guess who emailed me? The Lady with the Lundby!
