The New Dollhouse

Submitted by abbpim on Wed, 08/15/2012 - 11:37

I made this dollhouse a couple months ago from scrap wood I had in my garage. It was my third build! I used felt for carpet on the bottom level and I used a laminate scrap that was laying in our garage for the upper level to look like a hard wood floor. I used leftover paint that we had from other projects, and I didn't spend a penny on this project other than screws and glue, etc. I didn't think it would come out as nice as it did, and it provides hours of entertainment for my daughters! I'm going to be making another one of these as a Christmas gift this year! What I liked best about this project was the endless amount of creativity that could be used. I'm going to try to make handmade furniture for the next one I build!
