DPM makes some great buildings, most have large windows that lend themselves to interior detailing, unless you're building a vacant building.
I have a nice corner lot that I had DPM's corner cafe on it but I found that since I had built it it looked a bit dated with some flaws in the structure as well as a lack of some detailing that I wanted to add.
I started by painting the brick in a kalki color with the windows, doors and trim painted in Colonial Blue. I used a concrete wash to bring the motar color out between the bricks.
I used Woodland Scenics dry transfers for the Cafe name (Baxters) as well as a bit of advertizing and posters on the rear wall. I also added the window glass and pull down blinds.
When adding the interior I used some card for a floor template.
The cafe interior is laid out on the floor template with the walls, lunch counter and sit-down booths marked out. There is an entrance to the stairwell for the second floor to the right. The one wall will seperate this from the cafe. Seeing as the front door is at a 45 degree angle to the walls I made the floor to aquare the footprint.
The floor is made out of styrene. I primered it in grey.
THe lino flooring is some scrapbooking paper. Other options would be hardwood with the covering cut out of magazines or catalogues.
Using the card template again I cut out the walls.
The walls were all sprayed white with the two kitchen walls painted in a sky blue to match the floor.
