One Franca's 2nd Birthday Eve, I was transported to my 5-year-old brain on Christmas Eve. Except this time I was the one giving not receiving. I was that anxious and nervous! I put a lot of work into this dollhouse renovation and I was eager to see if she liked it.
And the other 999,999 photos:
I painted the exterior our house exterior colors. A view inside the door to the kitchen/dining.
|A view of the entry door, dining room (complete w/ miniature architectural drawing set) |
and her new Saint Bernard.
The table and rug I made with chairs and kitchen set from my parents.
|She was very excited about the kitchen set. A sink! A "fridger"! |
Wall color is BM Kalamata same as our dining room.
|A photo on the wall of my Grandfather (on right) who made this dollhouse for me.|
|The couch I made, kittens from my brother and sister-in-law. |
Wall color is SW Functional Gray, same as our living room.
A couch throw blanket made from scrap fabric and
a photo from our family photo shoot.
Ceiling tiles I painted and cork floor to match our bathroom,
wall color SW Drizzle to match our bathroom.
|The bed from Aunt Heather, and bedding and rug I made. |
This room needs a little something else. More flotaki-ish rug? lamps?
Trunk is just from Michael's and I forgot to order the modern chair for this room! Whoops!
|Mod chair, mini dollhouse and rug fabric from an old rocking chair of my parents.|
|This is the only color that we don't have in our real house. I do love it and |
am trying to think of a place in our house to paint it!
|In the attic sports a combo playroom-daycare just like in the real house's living room.|
|Friends bought Franca a whole slew of babies because her dollhouse |
needs to have a daycare just like her real house! Marc thought it would be
funny to stage 2 babies fighting over a chair. If only that wasn't SO close to real life.
|Confession, this is the only side of the roof I will show you. |
After all the procrastinating on the roof, we ran out of shingles and
the other side is only 2/3 finished. Ugh.
