Bead Board Wall

I started work on the walls in the shabby house bedroom. I will most likely do a pastel yellow of some sort for the other two walls, and do the bead board only the bottom half. I like how it's turning out. I have to play a little with filling in the weird gaps around the ceiling. I'll probably use mat board.
This is my inspiration room.

I have been debating for a while whether I should keep the front door the green color I painted it originally or paint it white. The advantage to having an all white door is that it matches everything. The disadvantage is that it is less of one of a kind house, since I have seen quite a few people with this same dollhouse all painted white. We weren't that far off from that fate though anyway, since everything else was white, so I went with the all white door. I'm glad I did. This wreath I made last night would not have matched the green door. I think the house looks good all white. Maybe that's why so many people have done their's all white. :)
