Book Description

A charming English style--and attitude--infuses this book on furnishing dollhouses. A Dorset-based father-and-daughter team selects eight rooms and decorates them according to eight different design periods, from a medieval scullery to a very modern (and pricey) kitchen. It may take a bit of interpretation to decipher their instructions for the projects because of the often very British language. Nonetheless, their methods for, say, painting a country pine dresser or building an Edwardian chiffonier are both novel and fairly easy to accomplish. Directions, though explicit, are not in the usual how-to format; the list of necessary materials is omitted and instructions are not illustrated in the step-by-step process seemingly necessary for this craft.
