Thanks to Kelli from Pretty Lil' Posies, who posted a dollhouse her mom made, I discovered that Michael's sells unfinished dollhouses! So I took my 50 percent coupon and got one at half price! I wanted more rooms, so I also (later) bought a little drawer shelf and took out the drawers. It's a little shorter than the house, so I am going to make the top a rooftop patio.
I am probably having more fun with this than my niece ever will...
Here are pictures of the exterior, which is what I have done so far:
I painted the house green, my niece's favorite color-the photo makes it look like there are smudges, but those don't show up in real life. My husband and I were just blessed with a new digital SLR, so after today the pictures will be better!
More to come at a later date!
