Jen's Cottage- Pink!

I have been working on Jen's Cottage. This house is cut out of a sheet of wood from the hardware store. It's an original design.
 I sketched the house down on my notebook about month ago. It's gone through some little changes, like the addition of a wrap around porch. 
I've done the porch floor.  The roof will probably be put on after I paint. 
I've painted 2 rugs and some artwork for the interior. I also finished some pillows for the bed.
The roof is on and the upstairs chandelier in place.
The siding is on the exterior.  Now it's time to paint.

Finally, a pink house!  Thanks Jen for going for it!  This is going to be the sweetest house I've ever made.


  1. Интересная интрига!
    Мне нравится розовый цвет. С нетерпением буду ждать завершение проекта. А кто там будет жить? Принцесса?
    С наилучшими пожеланиями из России. Елена.

  15. Dear Caroline, I just love the house, it is sooo pretty in pink! Since this is not from a kit, but made from scratch, could you explain how the construction of the house is made? Is it enough only to glue them together? This is sooo cute, I love it!

    1. Hi Ebru! I just get a sheet of thin plywood from the hardware store. I cut out my design. This one needed to be taller so I could have a nice space for the bedroom. I cut out the windows and doors. Then I do hot glue it. The thing is that my hot glue is for wood and I use the hotter professional hot glue gun. We made a mistake on a previous house and tried to pull it apart. It was impossible. This stuff really sticks! If your glue is not quite as strong you can use a staple gun for such thin plywood. If I use MDF I nail it together. But usually hot glue is enough. Especially if you are not shipping your houses. Try out gluing a couple of pieces of leftover wood together to test out your hot glue gun's performance. Great question Ebru!

  16. Het is weer een prachtig huis geworden en een prachtige kleur lieve groetjes Danielle
