My Anthropologie inspired dollhouse is done. It was a lot of fun to make!
I found the topiary trees at Michaels craft store. They are place card holders from the wedding section.
The house is covered with concrete. This side and the front have siding made out of corrugated cardboard.
This side is just concrete. I got the 3D effect of the white trim by putting thick cardboard and then covering the entire thing with concrete.
I painted the trim white, the body of the house is puddy colored(tan) and I aged it. I made my little window crooked. I really wanted vintage character for this house.
The battery and switch are in the dormer roof.
The interior was dreamy to work on!
I made the bed from 2 pieces of fencing. And I decorated it with a scrapbook plaster decoration on the headboard. The bedding is just bits of muslin and lace I had left over. I did a little needlepoint embroidery on the pillows.
I found a canoe at Hobby Lobby. It was too cute to pass up. I painted it blue and cream and placed it behind the headboard.
I had to put a couple of glitter trees in there too.
The wall of book pages is so perfect for this house. The idea came from A Well Dressed Home
My jar chandelier is my favorite light fixture I've ever made!
The Anthropologie Inspired Dollhouse is Musette's future home. Thanks Rella

Caroline, I would need to live for some time in a house like this, sweet and calm and cool as a breath of fresh air ...ReplyDelete
It leads one to think the spring as something close, even though we are in the middle of winter and flu, from which I am afflicted, to be precise!
Beautiful house, as always :-)
I also made progress in my cottage and I can not wait to share with all of you: on the mantel, there is a beautiful painting of roses ...
Mini lovely hugs,
P.S. I would also need an ivy for the outside: can you give me some advice? Yours is always lush :-)ReplyDelete

That book page wall is so cute, and I went to the real inspiration picture,
so beautifully charming. Loved your lil light fixture, looks so much like those I see in real life homes, and
I have seen and love those topiaries and have wanted to get some myself, cause I didn't get them the first time I saw them at hobby lobby. Everything is adorable as always,
