So today is supposed to be the 'reveal' day for our dollhouses, but it just didn't happen. This is just a tough time of year with the holidays and things are crazy. Last night after V went to bed I divided my time between making six dozen cookies for a cookie exchange we're going to today and dollhousing. Luckily I'm really making the dollhouse for Violet to play with someday and not just for the challenge, but it was a fun way to motivate myself to get started! So without further ado, here's what I have going on so far:
I decided to have a little fun with the roof and used chalkboard paint. For now I drew shingles on, but eventually Violet could get creative and draw whatever strikes her fancy. I obviously still needs to add windows and doors as well.
The bedroom needs some lamps or sconces and something on the far wall, but overall I'm liking the vibe I've got going on here.
In this space a lot still needs to happen. The windows need to be cut out of the wallpaper and installed and some painting needs to be done to some of the furniture in this room (and a door would be good too!) I think the dining chairs are going to be painting - not sure about the table and benches. I think I'm also going to paint at least the top of the side table and maybe the bench in the entryway? Any thoughts on this part? It's still got a long way to go - but hey, they have their Christmas tree up at least!
This wingback chair will probably go in the living area as well - I'm still working on finishing up the reupholstery.
I debated for a while if this room should be a bathroom or not, but I decided that the dolls are just going to have to learn to hold it. It is so much more fun to make a studio/workspace! Plus it's open to the stairs and that's bound to be a little awkward for a bathroom if you know what I mean.
I'm planning to paint the desk and add art to the walls. Maybe even buy an iMac? :) I'm still debating on how to paint the stairs too. There's also a kitchen and children's space in the house, but they are no where near completion so more on that to come.
Overall creating a dollhouse has been a much bigger challenge than I anticipated but so much fun! Congrats to all who made the deadline and completed their spaces - I can't wait to check them all out!
