I realized that it was the acid-yellow paint and the black that I really disliked.
I painted over it all with a cream color and a brown antique wash.
I like it a lot better than before but it is not quite aged the way I want.
I need to add some more subtle colors and build the layers slowly.
I want to put this project on hold so I put a bunch of windows and doors to see what it would look like. (I know the windows are wrong for this type of house so I need to get some different ones.)
When I put the house back in the foyer, I noticed that the lovely bay window was hidden in the corner. I tried turning the table sideways, and although it does clear the front door it looks really odd in this location.
Looks like this will be the first house going down to Willow Ridge.
This house will be continued at a later date.
