The Beeches

This is the Beeches. The outside of this house has been painted and papered with brick and tile paper to create a brick effect. If you look at the front of this house you can see that the lower portion of the house is white. This is painted with textured paint to create a rough external effect.

The brick effect on the house is created with brick paper which is stuck in place with wallpaper paste. The same with the tile effect on the roof this is created with tile paper.

Creating a dolls house like this is very easy by simply using paint and dolls house papers.
