A homemade dolls’ house

December 5th, 2011

We like to bring you interesting projects that we’ve discovered on the web and a recent example is from the Project Corner website hosted by mother of two, Joanna. 

As Joanna explains:
“When I was nine we had a handmade Christmas.  Each gift given needed to be handmade.  My sister and I each received a dollhouse made by my brothers and Dad.   It is a simple design, but leaves lots for active imaginations.  Now that I have a little girl of my own I wanted to update the interior and exterior a bit.”

Joanna started her project by cleaning the outside of the house and removing the interior wallpaper.  She wanted to involve her children and so “didn’t want to use harsh chemicals.  I made a solution of 1 part water and 1 part vinegar, put it in a spray bottle and went to work.”

For the flooring, Joanna enterprisingly got hold of free samples from her local DIY store and at this stage of this project has just moved on to the roofing.  You can read more and see lots of pictures by visiting her website.
