I just completed all the rooms in my dollhouse. I have spent $63.00 out of pocket on this project. That is for the dollhouse, furniture and accessories. This is pretty good because I looked into buying items online and they were so expensive. A single piece of handmade furniture costs more than what I spent on the entire project! I repurposed the furniture that came with the dollhouse and made the rest out of stuff I had. The piece I used for the potting shed was purchased for $1. at the thrift store. I made the wood desk in the studio out of a wood box top, a vintage ruler, scrap wood and a round dowel. Here is a peek at the rooms! Please let me know what you think!
I bought the tool box & tools, and the sewing machine at Michaels.
Yesterday I painted and finished all of my loft furniture, and today I stained the floor, added the wallpaper and finished this industrial loft space. I am trying to make everything by hand, but I really want to add some lighting, and I will need to read up and buy the wire & stuff. I would like to have this loft space in Denver! It's my favorite city and it would be fun to stay there when we visit. Dream big, right!?!
I have been working on my space for a gallery opening this week! I am so excited to be a part of this new adventure! My space will feature vintage and handmade items. A bit of that old & new things that I love!
I made curtains out of vintage linens, painted the door and filled the room with handmade pillows, some furniture and chic junk! More details to come!
I have always wanted to decorate a dollhouse! I bought a beautiful dollhouse about 30 years ago and started collecting furniture for it, but I didn't have any place to work on it or store it, so I got rid of it. How sad! Anyway, I went to a sale at a school on Saturday, and there was a homemade dollhouse. I didn't buy it, and left. Well, I was driving home and I thought I really should go back and look at the dollhouse, even though I didn't need it. It came with some mismatched furniture, and I just couldn't pass it up.
I brought the dollhouse home and decided I had better make room for it in my art room, because if I didn't I would never finish it. I have now completed 2 rooms and I am having so much fun decorating it!
I still need to finish the door by the stairs, but other than that the nursery is finished.
At the end of the month I will have a space in a gallery for my vintage and handmade items. I am really excited and I will write a post about it as soon as I have photos to share. I just finished repurposing this cabinet for display. I painted it, decoupaged parts of it and, and waxed it. I can put items in the drawers and change out the vintage clothing to keep it fresh. I can't wait to see how my new adventure goes!!
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
