The Attic

The next room I worked on is supposed to look like an attic. This was the first room I experimented with using flooring printed on the computer. It was also before I had found the site for free wallpaper, and grabbed a picture off the web from a site that did flooring. I picked a parquet pattern and then using Windows Paint copied and pasted the small picture a few times until I got a page full of the pattern. I then did a copy and paste into Windows Publisher and printed it out. I guess you can do individual files for these, but I did the copy and paste into Publisher so that I could make different pages and keep everything in one file. It has worked out very well for me that way.


  1. Hi Olivia, I just found your blog because you became a follower of mine. Welcome and thanks. I must say that you are very brave! The Harrison is not an easy house to put together. When you get that under your belt you will be ready to tackle just about anything in the dollhouse world. It looks great so far! Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks for the kind words. It has been such a long time since my dad gave me the kit and I lost the original carton except for a picture from the front which I apparently kept to see what it is supposed to look like. I never remembered the name of it. Thanks again.
