I’m really pleased with how the wall joint compound worked for filling the gap between the window insert and the window opening.
I’m usually a real chicken when it comes to shabbying up a dollhouse, but I did add quite a bit of grub to this room with the paint treatment listed below. I do see a bit of paint build up on the inside of the window that I’m not happy about. I have some detail work to finish on the right side of the window so I may as well try to sand that down a bit. I may try an emery board. The photographs really show so much more than my eyes can see in person.
