One last photo of the final paint job for this series…
If I go back later and put some interior trim around the windows to hide the big gap. I bet it would look even better. I may give it a try once I’m done with the foundation and finishing the upstairs room.
Wall paneling: Bristol board and cereal box cardboard
Doors: left is a faux door – House Works 6 panel interior door.
Took it apart and only used the door and the molding. Right is an exterior door – Mayberry Street Yorktown door from Hobby Lobby
Floor: wide plank House Works
Chair rail molding and baseboards: Hobby Lobby, they no longer carry these styles
Crown molding: from a Miniatures store on Ebay
Door knobs and key hole: Classics, repainted aged bronze
Paint finish: Latex interior house paint (white walls and ceiling "Feather Down" by Benjamin Moore (leftover real house living room paint), and a mix I made for this room (latex interior house paint – white base, nave blue, brown, and gray added). Aged with creme wax with a little Waverly "Mineral" chalk paint added. Dirtied up some areas with creme wax with a little brown wax.
