Doll House Rescue Mission!
I haven't quite finished my latest projects that I was going to post, so I thought I would share something that I worked on a while ago for my daughter. (if you're my friend on FB you've already seen this, so sorry if I'm boring you!)
I was on a desperate mission to find a wooden doll house several months ago, and I found this fixer-upper house in a thrift store, and I thought I would rescue it!
So I got out some acrylic paints and a toothpick, and (a day later!) ta-da! New life!
I made all the little furnishings myself, out of household things mostly, and some things from the $1 section at the craft store!
Wooden spools, sprigs of tiny flowers, a tiny beveled mirror from JoAnn's, and a fabric scrap rug for the entry way...
Wooden blocks and peanut butter lid table and chairs. And half a cardboard box for the fridge!
(And there I am in the kitchen, reading my to-do list!)
Two cardboard boxes with their lids glued to them for sofas, and a wooden block ottoman.
Scrap booking letters and half a cardboard treasure chest (from the craft store) for the nursery.
More boxes, and part of a shelf hanging thingy (it looked like a toilet to me...), and a flower I cut from my favorite fabric for the bathroom!
I seem to be missing the picture of the master bedroom, but I used tiny circle mirrors for the walls, and half of the box that my thumb tacks came in for the bed.
