I knew I couldn't stop having fun to create miniature or making them from a kit that I found from store or from online store, since I started the first one ( Castle), I knew this is no ending. haha!
Today, I'm gonna share this European style romantic cafe dollhouse, it took me on and off almost 6 months to finally complete today and I couldn't wait for another second to share it with you.
I had the most fun time while putting this miniature dollhouse cafe together, also had the most hard time ever ! lol
So many intricate details and it makes me wonder since when I have "big and fat fingers" ?!
Besides the intricate items, the wiring connection for total of 10 light bulbs via switches is also a huge challenge ! I messed up for the first time when I try to connect all the messy wires, and I really did a wrong connection and caused all the light bulbs to blow !! It was quite frustrating.
I have been trying hard to think and figuring how does the wiring work..... and luckily I have success for the second try, so so happy !!
The outdoor chairs and tables were another biggest challenge, to bend all the wires in the same shape and fit for all.... It took me very very long time and lots of lots of patience.
The amount of cutting for paper cups, saucer, straws, plates, even pack the tiny macaron in the tiny mini plastic bag and wrapping those display in the shelve with wax paper..... many times I nearly give up!! haha !
Come ! come ! let's have a cuppa while continue telling you the story .....
(It's gonna be lot's of pictures !)
