Several of you guessed correctly - my latest project is a doll house for my daughter's birthday...
Meet the new family that will be taking up residence - once their interior designer/contractor finally finishes their home!
I love the concept of an easy-to-store and portable toy; my daughter's room has limited space and this dollhouse will easily disassemble and slide onto her bookshelf when not in use.
My husband cut a square, and then routed out the middle creating a base for the walls and 4 distinct rooms. I painted the sides and inset white, but I plan on decoupaging the other surfaces.
Notice how attentively the family is surveying their new foundation.
Two additional pieces were cut, which created the walls of the house - the notch in the middle of each board allows the pieces to slide together.
Now that construction is complete, the family anxiously awaits the installation of flooring and wallpaper (i.e. decoupaged paper, of course).
Not wanting to be outdone by the beautiful home that they are about to possess, this lovely family has hired a stylist to give them a makeover as well. After all, they must not detract from their home's beauty! Stay tuned for their dramatic transformations.
Also, my next post will be my 100th post, and as is blog tradition, I plan on celebrating.
With a giveaway.
