You can give your dollhouse an entire new look with the help of dollhouse painting. Some dollhouse kits are made up of unfinished plain wood and as a dollhouse enthusiast, you may like to give it a more decent look. You can paint both the interiors and outdoors of the dollhouse and the good thing is that it is not very difficult to accomplish the mission of dollhouse painting. First of all, you have to decide which colors you like to paint in each room, buy the paint which are available at any local craft store or through Internet and apply the paint with the help of a small fine tipped crafting brush. It is advisable to do dollhouse painting with the help of a spray paint as it will possibly save other areas from being painted. It is very difficult to paint smaller details like stair-case banisters and window trims, so it is better to paint them before gluing them.
Miniature items such as dollhouse pillows, duvets, garden stakes, furniture and dollhouse plants help in completing the look of the dollhouse. If you have a garden in your dollhouse then dollhouse plants, stones, animals, insects and birds are a must to give that refined look to the setting. Other miniature items that you can place in your dollhouse garden include miniature cats, dogs, garden stakes, gazing balls, fishes, fountains, gates, fences and stepping stones. The dollhouse plants need sunlight, containers and good drainage system. You can add a removable lid to the dollhouse so that lights can be placed that are meant for growth of these plants. You can also buy a miniature greenhouse which can hold both dollhouse furniture and real plants. Some of the common dollhouse plants are bonsai trees, lavender, Japanese dwarf tree, rosemary, thyme, sage, creeping savory, dwarf lace bark elm and thumbnail perennials. These dollhouse plants enthrall everyone when planted together, despite of being tiny in size. For more information on dollhouse kits, you can log on to www.dollhousecollectables.com
