How do I create a brick look on a vintage dollhouse?

I am on a very tight budget, and I need to restore a vintage Lundby of Sweden dollhouse. My daughter in-law and my Mom rescued it at a yard sale for $2.00 and brought it to me. I love miniatures. It is electric. The bad news is some child had apparently painted it all kinds of colors in the past on top of the paper that resembled the siding. When trying to get the paint off, it took the paper also. I thought I could maybe make it look like brick or stone or some type of siding but I need ideas that can be done on a budget. The dollhouse is 1:18 scale if that helps. I look forward to hearing from everyone with their ideas. Have a blessed day.
