This is how all the dollhouses start out. Pieces of walls I cut out of pretty thin plywood. I buy the plywood sheets at the regular big box hardware stores. It costs about $11 a sheet.
Then I gather my wallpapers if the house is going to have some. These all come from the scrapbook department of a craft store. I apply the wallpaper to the walls with white glue before I put the house together.
The house comes together very quickly after that. Next, I put the wood floor in place. These are craft sticks painted with watered down white acrylic paint. I also started working on furniture.
I have a mantel, chair, table set, and kitchen sink/counter.
I bought this table and chair set. It was pristine white. So I sanded the edges and took a craft knife to make nicks in it too. I wanted a oilcloth tablecloth. A real one would have been to thick to fall correctly. So I took my favorite fabric and coated it with 5 layers of gloss. It looks just like oilcloth!
I made this chair from scratch out of wood veneer. It's covered with a very pale pink fabric.
The mantel is wood. I made it smaller than my usual mantels so it would look more Victorian.
