I started with this bookshelf:
I made all the room dividers and the additional peak out of scrap wood from another item we had in our house but was falling apart. I glued and nailed all the walls in place. I used a jigsaw to cut out the windows on the side of the house (that is NOT my favorite power tool). I cut the doorways between rooms out before I glued the walls in place. I'm eventually going to put railing along the top next to the attic room but I'm going to wait until Ari is older as she's still a little rough with things and I'm afraid it would just break off. I then painted it white.
Then I gathered up all my scrapbook papers and some Mod Pogde and started decorating. I also used acrylic paint to do the base colors. Make sure that when you adhere your papers to the wall that you put the glue on the paper first otherwise you will get bubbles in your paper (you might still get some bubbles the larger your paper is, but not nearly as bad). Oh, and don't forget to coat over your papers after they are in place with more Mod Podge. I'm still figuring out what I want to do for the flooring in the top rooms. I also plan to do wall hangings and other small trinkit but I'll probably have Ari help me make them.
As you can see Ari has lots of dolls but is sparse on the furniture. That will come later. My Mom is talking about getting her some for her birthday and I'll probably make some also to give to here for her b-day.
This room makes me think of a bathroom. I'll probably get some scrap linoleum to finish the floor with.
I plan to make this room the kitchen/dinning room.
I know some of you requested instructions, so if you have any questions leave a comment and I will try to answer them as best as I can!
