The Kotton Kandy Kit Dollhouse

I bought the Kotton Kandy kit dollhouse. The quality is amazing!

I want to stick to a very shabby and very romantic look. Maybe a little of the Gustavian gray/blue style with some shabby chic whites,pinks and roses.

I've started playing around with the walls.
My first coat of paint was a brown and black mix for a very old and grungy first layer.
Next, I painted a very thick layer of cream paint.
I'm thinking about layering some more neutral colors.
But first I might add little pieces of ripped romantic roses wallpaper with plaster to cover the edges.
The ceiling has a coat of cream. It'll probably be covered with little faux tin tiles.
Now, I need the courage to stick on the wallpaper! I suppose if it doesn't turn out I can always sand it off. More later!
