I know you're thinking Cupcake Shop? Where's Cinderella's Cottage. Little change of plans. Cinderella will have to wait a couple of weeks.
Marlyn contacted me a couple of days ago with a shabby chic cupcake shop dollhouse idea. She had seen this picture of the shop Little Miss Cupcake and loved it.
So I doodled a little design and started this shop. I used the Buttercut kit. I made the changes I wanted. I changed the door from the middle to the left and made the front window into a 3 sided shop window and another tall window on the other side.
Here I glued the walls to the floor(the roof is just resting on top). I started off by trimming all the new windows and door.
I plastered and painted the front wall and one side wall. I used a very happy pastel pink.
I made the stripes by first scoring the damp plaster. It turned out so well! It looks like a wide plank wainscoting.
I painted the other wall and put a wainscoting at the bottom.
And I painted some white dots on the all pink wall.
I wanted to print out some wallpaper from the internet. But to make it the right proportion I would have had to do so much photo shop. So I decided just to hand paint the roses. It was faster than messing with the computer and editing. I used pink, red, hot pink, cream and light green.
Instant shabby chic roses wallpaper! I made the little mantle from left over wood.
I made the floor with pine Popsicle sticks.
This is the bay window on the side of the house. I made a Fleur de Lis design, but it's really hard to see here. The walls are cream and the window trims and ceiling gray.
