Cinderella's Fairytale Thatch Roof Cottage Custom Dollhouse

I finished Cinderella's Cottage, another custom dollhouse.
This time I didn't use the loose coconut fibers, I used the pot lining coconut fiber mat.  It was much cleaner to work with!
The cream wall is plaster. I aged it with a thinned down black and brown mix of paint.
The turret is fake and just for show. I will need a bigger tube form if I want to make real windows or doors in the turret. It is covered with concrete to give a real rock texture. I painted the fake windows black so they look like they are real.
There are plenty of pumpkins for Cinderella.
And yes there's plenty of moss too. You all know how much I love using moss. LOL!
Here is one side. I put shutters and fake timber. This timber is just the plaster carved as planks of lumber. I also added a little birdhouse I had made a long time ago for another project. It's just made with left over bits of dollhouse.


And the other side.
This is not a working chandelier. It's just to look pretty.
The bed is big, but that's how my own bed is. So I figured it would work in this dollhouse too.






The attic floor is gray. The ceiling is white washed. All the curtains are pink lace.
The exposed slat wall with the plaster oozing between the slats.

I think this is a great little hideout for Cinderella!

Sold and going home to Cheryl. Thanks Cheryl!

  8. It is so gorgeous Caroline- another masterpiece! I love the roof- it's exactly what I want for a project I plan to tackle next year- I wonder if you might let me "borrow" it when I tackle my project? The bed is fantastic and I want to fall into it right now with a good magazine and some cookies :)
