Baleine Beach Cottage Dollhouse

Baleine Beach Cottage Dollhouse is coming along! I made a nice cozy bed for the upstairs bedroom.  I used 2 pieces of wood glued together to make the headboard and footboard.  My insipration?
The Pottery Barn kid's catalog.  This little girl bedroom was so sweet. I could only fit one bed in the dollhouse though.
Downstairs I painted the floor with base paint. Base paint is the stuff the hardware store uses when you order a custom color paint. It's thinner paint. I brushed it on and let it dry. Then I put gloss on.
I also made a turquoise and clear crystal chandelier with a battery operated light in it.
The little entry wall had molding at the top bottom and side.
For the entry light I used a little bowl shaped finding from the jewelry making department.  It casts a great sunshine shadow!

  1. The cottage is looking gorgeous. Love the little bed. The bowl shaped finding makes a really effective light - I like the way the light spills out in different directions.

  4. Ciao Caroline, la stanza è molto romantica e piena di dolci dettagli. Mi piacciono anche entrambi i lampadari e buona l'idea del lampadario che filtra la luce a raggiera.
    Un caro saluto. Manu

  31. Hi Caroline! The bed with its soft furnishings is a charm! The turquoise chandelier is delightful and it stands out beautifully against the other colours. The little bowl-shaped ceiling light is so special. You always come up with such wonderful concepts. I love the silver ceiling and the diversity of your walls. I look forward to the completed project!

  35. Hi Caroline! Your Beach cottage is looking Wonderful and I am digging the bed! Your choice of bedding is ultra feminine and girly and perfect for the wallpaper that you have chosen. I love the effect the natural light has as it plays upon the walls and the ceiling light is a great choice too! All one needs is the sound of the ocean and the feel of the breeze and we would all be on vacation with you there!
