It all started with this picture....Elena just loved Grandma's really neat dollhouse back in July. Here she is rearranging furniture. And then I was at Goodwill and I found this plain simple dollhouse that can also be a bookshelf and hung on the wall. It was very solid and put together to withstand the test of toddlers, so I decided to buy it ($5) and make it into a real dollhouse for Elena's September birthday.
I put a solid coat of primer on it to seal it and prevent future stains.
I taped off different areas...I painted one of the upstairs bedrooms, painted the roof and the outside of the house, all with either acrylics or paint I had left over from other projects.
I used scrapbooking paper for wallpaper and carpet and attached it with Mod Podge (of course). There is such fun scrapbooking paper now and I had fun with decorating. There is the pink monkey room...
There is a nice green carpet in one of the bedrooms...and a mod black and white in the dining room (at least I think it is a dining room!)
See the trim I found in the garage and mitered all by myself? (Note that I am not showing you the place where the two pieces join at the top) I thought that trim added a bit of pop to the whole project!
Here is the completed project sitting on my wood stove...just waiting until Saturday.
I can't wait to give it to her!!
