1920s Cottage Dollhouse

I started my new dollhouse project.
My sweet blog friend Melody of Brown Gingham Creations always sends me the best cottage pictures. She sent me the most charming 1920s cottage.
I have to try to capture this incredible little home's sweetness.

I chose to use the Sugarplum dollhouse kit to try this house.
I started putting it together.
And I painted the interior walls a gray/blue color.
I scored the floor with a sharp knife.
I painted the dollhouse floor with a watered down medium brown.
Then I added a watered down black paint to age the floor.
I made 2 fireplaces. The inside of the fireplaces is carved plaster.
The attic has wallpaper and the same blue paint as downstairs. I Painted that floor white and aged it. It is also scored like the downstairs floor.


  1. I can't get over how fast you work. You certainly are not a procrastinator! I like your colour choice. Your floors are looking great. Can't wait to see what comes next.

  2. I'm totally lost for anymore complimentary words!!! You just keep outdoing yourself! I hope, one day, I can buy one of your gorgeous mini homes:)

  6. Wow, this is already so beautiful! I can't wait to see it finished. I love the mini fireplace and the wallpaper! :)
