Oh my goodness I'm TIRED! I stayed up til 1:00am last night working on the dollhouse last night and was hard at it again this morning. I am soooo close to being DONE! I just had to do another post to show you the (almost) finished product.
Here's a look at a room-by-room tour of Aimee's Dollhouse!
Here's a little girl's room! The lamps that you see are made with popsicle sticks glued into wooden beads with a square tile as support on the bottom. The shade is made out of a medicine cup covered with a beaded necklace I had lying around.
All of the wooden furniture you see I did not make, I found it at a thrift store for $2.50. A COMPLETE steal! I bought it over a year ago knowing I would use it someday and here it is!
The pictures are made from leather cut outs and the pictures are all from a South Dakota tour guide I had lying around. Worked perfectly!
This lamp shade is covered with brown fabric and accented with beads.
Here is the dining room. I made the chairs much like I made the living room furniture from yesterday's post. I had the little flowers and I arranged them and poured hot glue into a hairspray cap and now the flowers aren't going anywhere and are also "getting a drink" too! It's hard to see but the "clock" on the back wall is actually a button I found.
Probably my favorite room, the living room! I made everything in this room so it took the longest to create! But I love it! I'd like to find something for a rug but that will have to wait til later.
Here's the bathroom. I could probably do more in here with a vanity or something but I stopped after the "Velveeta" cheese box shower complete with "H" and "C" knobs and a drain and a shower curtain!
I will probably create some appliances for the kitchen but I'm probably going to wait til Aimee's birthday to tackle that project. But here's a counter made from cardboard and matchboxes for drawers. Only problem was, I left the drawers in the slots while I glued it together and you guessed it, the drawers are glued in quite nicely. Bummer! But it still looks nice!
So here it is! The only thing I have left is a pretty curtain that I'm going to attach to the from of the dollhouse and tie back with ribbon. Just a girly factor but I'm tired so I'm done with it for now! Thanks for looking!
Update: Here is our family playing with it on Christmas morning! It was a MAJOR success!
