Gottschalk dollhouse floor resortation

Previous post

The old floor was destroyed from ripping up the carpet so I had to make my own based on small samples that were mildly visible. 
Here is a photo of the damaged floor and the new floor I created.

I drew it and built it in Adobe Indesign then brought it into Photoshop and put a noise filter on it and then kept doing color tests and printing tests. (Above isn't the true color of the original floor.) I had to keep holding a sample next to the real floor to get the color exact.
Then I printed on regular paper, sprayed three coats of fixative, painted 2 coats of satin varnish, and Installed with a spray fixative. I’m a lot happier than I thought I would be with it.

Before wallpaper and floor


The wallpaper is so much fun! I love turquoise and red together.

Next up is the foyer.
