French Cafe Dollhouse

Here is the other dollhouse I have been working on: a French Cafe. This was an idea sent to me from Camille. 
I used the Greenleaf Orchid kit to start off. I cut the top of the roof off to get a flat top. Cut out two big windows in the front, added a transom above the door and changed the three upstairs windows.
I also added a patio with cobble stone sculpted out of concrete.
This whole house has a gray and cream color scheme. Inside, the walls are cream and aged. The paneling(sculpted plaster) is gray based, aged with mahogany.
Then I dry brushed it white and with another layer of light gray. I'll have to show you that picture tomorrow when the light is brighter. The wood floor is a watered down gray to let the wood grain show through.
The outside is all concrete. The embellishment is from Niki at Artistic Supplies.  
I think the outside will be cream stone??

Here is a shot of the concrete I use on all my houses.


  1. Oh... looks like another beautiful house! I love that embellishment at the top. Can't wait to see what's next!
