Butterfly Cottage Custom Dollhouse

Butterfly Cottage Dollhouse is ready to go!
 It was a lot of fun to fill up with details.
There are lots of butterflies outside.
A pumpkin waits for the fairy Godmother.
I put the switch and battery under the eave of the roof this time.

I added a little fabric flag.
The interior was fun to do.
I left the chest unfinished. When I put it in the house in looked right.
I made this bed myself and painted it with roses and birds.  I also painted a blue and pink rug with roses, macarons and the name "Laduree" in gold.
The bedding is very cozy, comfy and plush. The sheets and pillow case are by Debbie Booth the owner of Debbie's Designs/DebbieCalif on Etsy.  You will love her shop. It's filled with very romantic an necessary mini items.
I made the pink/darker pink duvet from cotton fabric.
The frame is by Melissa Francis.
I made the chair from the templates I found from The House of Miniatures. I printed out the sheet showing the pieces of the chair and cut everything out of wood, cardboard and foam. Here's the link:

 The footstool is just a wood circle and 4 legs. I painted it brown and golden brown with roses on top.
I made the table from a unfinished candle holder and added a round top that I painted silver. It's very Restoration Hardware. 
 The upstairs loft has a little desk I painted white and added roses to the drawer and aged the whole thing.
 I hope you enjoyed this little hang out.  This dollhouse is available on Etsy.
Thanks for coming over!
