Fairy Tale Magical Mystery Tower

Hello my dear friends,

How are you? Hope everyone is well and warm. I have been really busy in these past weeks. I have been preparing my ETSY mini shop and trying to manage with my every day life. I will be letting you know when the shop will be open. I also wanted to welcome a new follower to my blog. Welcome Julie! 

I have started my next project the Magical Mystery Tower. This is also a Dolls house Emporium kit which has been discontinued.


It is two room tower without any staircase and quite small. I won't be making any alterations to it. This tower is going to be based on most of Disney's Fairy Tales like Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Tangled. As a child they where my favorite tales and movies. Tangled came out recently but I still like watching it with my kids. On my honeymoon I had gone to Disney World and the Magical Kingdom was the first place that I visited. It was a dream come true to go there. I felt like a child once again. A place that I will never forget.

So first I started building the tower. Then I continued by painting the roof and it's base. For both the base and the roof  firstly I gave them a base grey color then for the roof I brushed painted some pink paint. For the base I also brushed painted with green and two shades of brown paint . I am really pleased with their effect. I have also painted the windows and the door.

The ground floor is going to be used for the witch or hag but it's going to be a little bit spooky and dark where enchantments happen. The top room is going to be where the princess stays. 

The tower so far
I have also gave and undercoat of paint  to the whole tower and so far this is how it looks. There is still a lot of work to do on the out side and still lots of work to do in the inside. 

I hope you like what I have done so far. Please keep tuned as I have so much to share.

Take Care

  7. Looking great! I bought this tower 10-odd years ago & started to paint it, but never finished it & its been sat in the loft. I got it down a couple of weeks ago & I'm now re-painting it for my daughter's birthday. The theme is pink glitter explosion! Wish me luck!
