Fabulous ideas! Will defo be swiping one... or two... or five of them Smiley

Got a little more done today. Inside I've added some plaster to the walls which will be stained with potion splatters and other good witchy things.

Outside had begun the process of grungification.


Still a bit of a mess but it's heading in the right direction. Not entirely pleased with the shutters but I'll keep at them. I do wish I could unhinge the shutters a la bunny1kenobi's suggestion but those things aren't budging.

wowee thats pretty. i love the grunge

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the inside of this place so I've been plugging away at the outside today....

I love it! Especially the last pic, and how you did the walls. And the boarded up door is inspired.

That is just what I was thinking. Are the windows real glass?

I love the painting on the sides of the house! And the boarded up door is perfectly mysterious.

I'm not sure what to do with the windows. I know there SHOULD be some broken glass in there but it's a sort of thick acrylic and I'm afraid if I try to punch it out that I'll damage the frame or just have goofy looking broken acrylic. If I had loads of time I'd punch away but I'm on a tight deadline so I think they'll have to stay as is  Undecided

Knickertwist, I absolutely LOVE the transformation that you've made with your "found house!" I cannot wait to see what you put on the inside Smiley

Is there some way to etch or paint the acrylic windows so they simply look cracked?

Wow, Knickertwist, it's coming along amazingly! I love how you've grunged up the outside of the house. What did you use for the moss up the side? Is it just paint? I was thinking of doing something similar with mine but was thinking along the line of vines/ivy. I'm just not sure how to make it 3-D and small enough.

The boarded up door is awesome! I like the suggestion of painting cracks in the windows. Maybe you can scratch up them up with an X-acto? You could also add some boards to them to make them a little more ominous.

I've been plugging away at my tiny books and love how they're turning out. Only problem is the kids love them, too, including the toddler who apparently thinks they're delicious. Smiley I hope to have my bookshelf done this week!
