DIY: Little townhouses

May 24, 2013

House shapes are popping up everywhere these days. Ferm Living, Bloomingville and Aplicata to name a few are using them in their spring collection.
So I decided to make my own. All it took was a massive wooden stud (I used one in oak), a mitre saw (or a handy friend that has one!) and some acrylic paint to decorate the rooftops with.
Ok, so I had a little help with this one. I’m all for women doing it for themselves, but when it comes to power tools of this dimension I’m not too proud to ask for help. But I supervised – and painted the roof tops myself ;)
I chose white, charcoal, peach and neon orange to add a little sass! If you want something more suttle, go with soft pastels or black, white and greys. Anything goes, so pick your favourite colours.

    Amazing! So classy. We made a few with a hacked up 2×4 that are put to shame by these beauts!

      Hi Emma.

      Thank you. Can you believe the floors are 113 years old! They are pine hard wood floors and they are stained with white oil – did it myself. Resonably easy to keep.

    Disse husene var så fine! Sånne fikk jeg også lyst til å lage. Vel, få min mann til å sage. Helt enig med deg, visse ting er det lov å spørre om hjelp til. ;)

      Mange tak – dejligt at du har fundet inspiration her. Jeg købte stolpen af egetræ i et byggemarked, kan desværre ikke huske hvilket. Prøv at forhøre dig i dit lokale byggemarked, de bør kunne hjælpe :)

    What's on your mind? We love to hear from you!
