The Beacon Hill Dollhouse Revisited Week 13

Interior Doors
The Beacon Hill has a lot of interior doors and they are plain so you can always add a little more detail using punch out pieces or laser cut wood inlays found at the craft store. I decided to make my own designs using stencils and spackling compound.

First give the doors a coat of paint and add the door knobs. Door knobs for one inch scale dollhouses should be three inches from the bottom of the door and you can apply them to any side you want. Always open a starter hole using a nail or a push pin so that your knobs go in easier. You should always apply glue to the hole to make sure your knobs don't become loose in the future.

Two knobs will not fit in the same place because the door is not thick enough. This means that when you install one knob, the knob of the other side must be slightly to the side of the first one. Always place it to the side and do not try to place it above or under the first one because it will be more noticeable.

Place the door on top of a roll of masking so that you can install the second knob without the first one being damaged or in the way.

After everything was dry, I placed the stencil where I wanted the design to be and applied a good amount of spackle over it. I then scraped it off evenly, lifted the stencil gently and the raised design remains. Always rinse off your stencils with water or wipe with a wet towel before using them on the next design. This ensures that you will get a crisp design outcome.

When everything was dry, I gave the doors a second coat of paint. Now they aren't so plain.

Keep In Mind
You must wait 24 hours for the design to completely cure before you can turn the door around and apply designs to the other side. You then need to wait another 24 hours before painting the door with a second coat of paint.

Be gentle on your designs so they don't soften with too much moisture from the paint and use your paint sparingly around them so it doesn't create globs and remove detail.
