Castle Courtyard Room Box (Dollhouse)

This month, I have completed a few room boxes that I had started on a little while back and it felt so good to finish some of them. Today, I wanted to share pictures of the latest one with you. It is another Courtyard scene and it has me wanting to finally jump into making my Castle tower when I am finished with my last custom order of this year.

It is a 1" scale Castle stone scene and I have embellished the roombox to give the entire piece the elegance I felt it needed.The light by the doorway is from England and is lit by using a 9v battery. There are LED lights and battery pack that I added on the top lid to give the room extra lighting. It is so beautiful to view in a dark room at night.

This is a 1" scale room (1" = 1') and the size of the box is 9 1/2" W x 9"D x 13"H.   The  window and the door was handmade by me and is my own design. The window has a stained glass pattern that I created. The door and the female knights at the doorway were custom created and added to this scene to make it a bit more unique.

The stones are painted an even tone or grays and browns. I call it neutral colored stones so that depending on the lighting, the stones will look all gray or all brown. This item is for sale in my CDHM online store

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Thank you so much for viewing my blog. Next month, I will do my first Blog Give Away so stay tuned for more details!!

Awww Thank you so much for your Kind words! I had a lot of fun doing this one. I had a lot of input from friends when I said I wanted to "jazz" up the plan box. I'm so glad I did it cause it gave the very effect I wanted! :0D

Very nice work. Reminds me of Downton Abbey. I would love to see an interior castle setting of yours. Check some out on my website for inspiration. Now that I found your site I'll be back. I collect dollhouses and miniatures, mostly from the mid century modern era.
Again, nice work.
