Malibu House - Progress on the Bathroom - Making the Shower Stall

I am making progress on the Malibu dollhouse bathroom.  I painted the one wall and cut the tile floor and shower wall tile.  Not that the white tile floor is actually lying down completely flat on the floor.  It keeps popping up, and of course, I am scared to cut too much off and have gaps.  I might have to start measuring it and stop my "eyeballing" approach.  

And I made the shower stall!  That was a bit easier than expected.

I bought 2 sheets of plexiglass, the plasticutter, and recommended Omnisticks glue from HBS/ And with my safety glasses on, I scored the plastic with the plasticutter, then snapped it, and I was happily surprised when that worked.  Then I glued it together with the Omnistick glue, using a magnetic gluing jig to hold it in place.

Now I have to paint the window frames and glue those in place and actually fix and glue down the "tile."  (I still kind of prefer the wood floor in the bathroom, so that may be my last step.)  I also need to fashion some shelf to hold toiletries in the shower.  I looked at various blogs for how to make toiletries, but it looked very complicated, so then I bought some on Etsy.

The Goods: washing machine is Miele and the shower base/tray, towel rack, toilet and rug is from Dolls House Emporium.   The little bath mat is from HBS/ and the chair is Reac.

Shopping at the Shelly Norris Online Miniature Show

I have spent the weekend checking out at the Shelly Norris Online Miniature Show - in my pajamas.

Here is the link:

And you can sign up for a door prize, so that alone is worth the visit.  It ends today, though.  

There are 75 dealers from 11 countries.  It's fun to see all the creativity displayed at the various tables.

Last year I bought the red haired doll in my St. Patrick's Day Post from Paola y Sara.  If you like dolls or fashion, I recommend checking out her "table."  She has costumed dolls starting from ancient times to modern day. I find it so interesting to see all the changes in fashion.   I also bought this doll, but she is from the Tudor time period, so I haven't used her in the scene, although she 's helping out reception at the hotel right now.  Clearly I will have to have a costume party soon.

And then last year, I also bought these items from Maru Coll:

Happy Sunday!
