My Dollhouse Projects, Room Boxes

The Room Box I started with a basic nook box that I found on sale. I built the box, and measured some… Continue reading Making The Music Room Box

My Dollhouse Projects, Plumbrook Cottage

Stuck on Shingles and the Floor

I’m feeling accomplished today. OOTD for dollhouse shenanigans I finally set aside a chunk of time to stick a few much needed shingles up on Plumbrook Cottage. I also reattached some trim pieces. https://youtu.be/skmGKQmmuHE Prior to the shingle shenanigans, I pulled up the upholstery from my grandpa’s old couch to use as carpeting.

DIY Dollhouse and Miniatures, Mini Glow Ups

Glow up for a Mini Chair

Sometimes, when I acquire doll houses there are miniatures inside that need some love. I saw this chair and love the shape, but she needed a spa day. I’ve repainted mini Miniatures, but this was my first time completely breaking down and rebuilding a handmade vintage baby. For those of you who have been doing… Continue reading Glow up for a Mini Chair
