Another fun week, another fun project. This one was a doozy for me. As I was out exploring the thrift stores last week, I ran smack dab into this little beauty...and knew it would be a perfect doll house for my little 2 year old to use now and later..as it is almost 6 feet tall! However..it did not quite look like the above picture, nor this:
It literally took me 2 full days just to get this thing prepped and painted in order for it to be able to be decoupaged! I got a little nervous in the end with time..but it all worked out, and I couldn't be happier with the results!
Enjoy a few of the details:
Yes, I decoupaged every single one of those shingles on..thank heavens for a helpful husband who brushed all the glue on while I placed and glued the pieces on. There were a lot of pieces!:)
This was by far my favorite wall. It was the first one I did...and yes, each of those little gray designs is a little piece..each stuck on and placed by hand. LOVE how it turned out.
The chevron design is 3 inch x 1/2 inch pieces of paper that were matched up and made into the pattern...and yes, I even sewed little curtains on there!
I made our family into a little cartoon..just a fun little detail that my little girl already loves looking at and pointing to everyone's faces..and of course a little fabric rug to warm up that wood floor!
and I will leave you with a parting shot of the roof!
I'm so glad I took the time to try a new medium for me out on this hidden treasure. It really was so much fun..and certainly has MANY hours of play in its future!
