The Craft Studio Custom Dollhouse

I've been working on the little craft studio. I'm almost done with it. It's just missing some tiny details.
 Inside, I made the ceiling with Popsicle sticks.
I painted everything cream. That was an easy paint job!
Outside, same color! I used concrete under ridged cardboard for the siding.
Bing! Done!
I used the little wire fence I had used on "Sprinkled With Love Cottage."  I just think it's the cutest thing I've ever seen! It came from a shop that was selling fairy garden accessories.
This studio has worn out paint and stone foundation.
The front porch is brick. I used the usual concrete and sculpted some little brick shapes.
This house has 2 battery operated lights.
Inside is so much fun to do.
Of course there's a dollhouse in progress.
I made a little notepad with the dollhouse's design and notes.
I made 3 scalloped edge shelves.
I had to try out some burlap curtains.
I love the memo board. It used to be a dollhouse window.
Loading up this board with stuff was a blast!
I have some stuff in the cupboard like fabric bolts, ribbons, and bobbins.
I made the shopping bag with some brown paper bag I had and filled it with paper, fabric and an umbrella. I love putting brown paper packages tied up with string  in the dollhouses!
Here's another started project: a yoyo quilt with a tiny needle on a string to look like someone's working on it.
Now I need a real life sized one of these!


  1. OMG! You did a fantastic job, as usual! I adore it!!
