The ad below from 1942 shows the house for sale for $15. The ad photo also shows a lantern hanging on the porch. The porch is what originally drew me to this house. I love the large white round columns.
I ordered a sheet of vinyl stickers to re-create the windows from a local vinyl sign company. I ordered a couple of extra just in case!
I applied the stickers to some sheets of clear mylar, then peeled off the backing and cut to a size that would allow for overlap and glue inside the house.
I glued the new windows in place. Up next I plan to apply some wallpaper, baseboards and window coverings.
The porch has a red and white lithograph pattern that looks like tile.
The floors were painted over at some point, but originally contained flocked rugs painted on the floors. Green on the first floor and light blue on the second floor. The stair banister lithograph is pretty detailed.
I put some black and white scrapbook paper with a checkerboard pattern in the kitchen. It is a lot cleaner and crisper than the original floor which is also black and white checkerboard.
The house has great graphics.
The house is currently where I keep my 1" Strombecker Walnut collection. It can be seen by clicking HERE
