Welcome to my new blog! I am entering the world of miniatures!
I found this doll house at my neighbor's garage sale for $15! I had a doll house when I was a child and remember hours of dreaming and playing with it. When I saw this little house I just knew it was meant for me!
It needs work, repair and remodeling to make it the little beach cottage I imagine. I'm planning to paint, wallpaper, add details and make my own furniture! I've never done anything like this before but am excited about all of the possibilities!
I'll be posting more photos later but want to show you what it looks like now. . .
This is the second floor deck. Love the railing and the paneled door! I can see chairs, flowers and maybe a table with an umbrella here?
This is the attic bedroom. I think it should be the master, don't you? It definitely needs painting! I already know what kind of furniture I want here!
The living room. Complete with crown molding and a chair rail. There's carpet on the floor.
Not sure that will stay. Of course I'll need furniture and window treatments...
Here's the stairs to the second floor. Needs a railing for safety, don't you think? How about some stenciling on the stair risers?
This is the door to the upstairs bathroom. Love the transom above it. The wallpaper is coming off, but look at the trim around the windows! The house has "good bones." All it needs is a little love!
I'll be sharing some miniature links here too. There are so many creative people in the world of miniatures! I'm just getting started!
