I decided to make the Quintessential Cottage a Winter/Christmas dollhouse.
It's not quite done yet. There are some trims missing. Also some pieces of furniture that I need to make. I had the green bottlebrush Christmas trees. I dipped them in bleach and they instantly changed to this wonderful cream color. Instant gratification!!
But I'm happy with the look I achieved. It's very rustic almost "primitive" style.
All the sides are different. This side is birch siding done vertically.
I kept everything in a tan/oatmeal/cream palette. That way it's very soothing and dreamy.
You can barely see the lights in the fireplace. I promise I'll capture them better in the final post for this house. I sprayed the "throw" with hairspray and then laid it on the chair. I pinned it in place until it was dry. Now it drapes over the cozy armchair.
Upstairs, I made a bed with 2 pieces of metal fence I had. I hot glued the bedding in place.
Next time, this house will be done! I'm not sure if I should use snow or not. Hmmmm?
Thanks for the visit!
