Cotsworth Cottage Custom Dollhouse Commission 1/12 Scale

A new commission is underway. Kathie requested an English style fairytale cottage. I call it Cotsworth Cottage. I have no idea where the name came from. It just popped into my head out of nowhere! :)
 This house has a turret. I decided the turret would be with windows. The turret is a paper mache box from Hobby Lobby that I cut in half. You can use any box like an oatmeal box.


 For the interior Kathie wanted something light and not gloomy. I came across this gorgeous lavender paper with roses on it. Originally I was going to use it upstairs. But I loved it so much I decided on putting it on the longest wall in the house.
 It is so feminine and precious! I find these papers on Pinterest and print them out on cardstock to avoid all th bubble drama with the white glue.
 The rest of the house has aged plaster and ridged cardboard.



 The floors have 2 washes. One white and one caramel brown. It looks so shabby chic! Don't be afraid to add to your washes. The more colors you use the more complex your end product will be. And that's what you want to make it look like an old worn space!
No girly cottage is couple without crystal chandeliers! These two will go downstairs.
The next post will be a fireplace mantel tutorial. So keep an eye out for it!
Have a super week. And create something. No matter how small. Sometimes that is all it takes to spark new energy into a project!
hugs,

  6. How lovely, Caroline! The wallpaper you found is enchanting! Perfect for a fairytale cottage! And I adore the two tones of wash on the floor boards. I cannot wait to see how the turret turns out....the windows are a wonderful addition to it. I will be on the lookout for the fireplace mantel tutorial! Thank you for your generous spirit of sharing as you willingly show how you do these works of creativity. Blessings!
