Take a load off. Have a smoke.
Aah the good old days.

This linoleum floor is pretty modern looking.

This is T. Cohn Tin litho house from (1948?)
I am missing the front door and one window from this house, does anybody know where I could find those? Any suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Coen Tin Litho House

Welcome to the 1950's
Couples slept in separate beds.
Not a bad idea maybe, if you have a snoring husband.

Is that a Gauguin above the Chesterfield?
I added a felt rug. Tin floors are a little cold.

A lot of Renwal furniture came with this house.
What a great buy.

Insert tab 'A' into slot 'B'.... aarg

It's a Vintage Cohn Tin Litho House. Year ??
\It's in much better shape than it looked in the ebay photos.

It's pretty. An EBAY bargain.
 It came with a bunch of Renwal Furniture.

Canoe House Project

I like this little shelf unit. It takes up almost no space.
I want to do something with it using very small furnishings (1/4" scale maybe).

I like the rough exterior so will leave it as is and paint and refinish the interior "rooms" only.
First some gesso primer.

Once I have some furnishings I can start adding  paint and floors and wall finishes.
