New Project: Gypsy Travel Trailer Dollhouse

This is my new project: a trailer dollhouse!

And this is my inspiration for it: The Magnolia Pearl Airstream.

I won't be making an exact replica of this one. But it will have a very strong influence on mine.

I put the structure together except for the roof and windows. I rounded the front to look more like the Airstream.

I did the wood floor.And got started on the very detailed interior.

Here's the Magnolia Pearl:
This is the picture that got me all excited. I think this looks so cozy and romantic.

This is what I have so far:
I'm layering the wallpaper and putting lots of trim.

I'm working on the daybed. I dyed the ruffle fabric to look old.

I started the bedspread. It needs more ruffles! I also made the iron headboard with black heavy and thick wire. Then I put these heart charms on.
