Swan Shabby Chic Dollhouse

The "Swan Shabby Chic Cottage" Dollhouse is ready for it's new owner,Barbara.
 This is the same house I wrote the how to book on. But I added a couple of inches. The  original is 15 1/4" and this one is 18 1/2" tall.
 I made  the screen door out of  2 pieces of 1/16" bass. And used real screen material in between.

 In this version I also decided to add a tiny chimney to hide all the batteries and switches.

 Barbara and her daughter chose the pink swan wallpaper I had once used in a house called Swan Lake House.  It's a scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby.

 All the "tin"tiles are made using my hot glue technique.
 The loft is the reason  I made the house taller. Barbara ordered a bed to go here. In the original "My Shabby Streamside Studio" by Sandy Foster, there was just space enough for a mattress up here.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this little house again.  It's a very sweet project for sure.
Next up a 1/6 scale adobe style Blythe house. Now this will be totally different for us!

  2. Caroline your new version of the house is just as adorable as the first, perhaps even better with the extra height. All the little details are wonderful, lucky new owners!
