Two weeks ago Matt added the room dividers and made doors into them. The bottom area is a shelf that will hold a basket or two for the dollhouse people/things that are not in use...
Funny story- This is dollhouse is BIG. Like 4 feet tall! And our house has NO storage. SO, I cover it up with several blankets and lay our inflated airmattress against it. The other day I came downstairs, knowing Corynn was down here-but then I couldn't find her. I called her name and heard a muffled response.
Uh OH. I know where that came from...
I peeked and sure enough~ there she was, laying inside the first shelf! She had a baby doll laying in EACH cubby all the way to the top! I was flabberghasted! I didn't know what to do! She said, "Mama-I was just sleeping with my babies!"
I tried to act all nonchalent but you can bet I scurried her out of there faster than Santa's tummy rumbles at the sight of cookies...and all I could do was LAUGH that she had been playing in her TOP SECRET Christmas PRESENT!
She is totally clueless though. I told her Papa was making a project out of that for me...NOT a LIE since I was the one to ask him to do it! So she thinks it is a bookcase or something...won't she be surprised on Christmas morning when she sees it filled with a family and furniture! Oh my, I can hardly WAIT!!!
This week I finally got to painting and wallpapering some of the rooms. I am just using scrapbook paper instead of buying the expensive dollhouse wallpaper.
This is the children's room. It is the attic portion because she has a LOT of children dolls! (All those Kelli dolls from Barbie and several babies)
This is the bathroom. One thing I DID buy was a toilet, tub and sink and they have a blue flowers on them. So naturally, the bathroom had to coordinate! ;-) I would love to have a REAL room in a house look like this! :-)
There is one room painted white and one that is cream. The other rooms I don't know what to do with...
But I have time, I suppose. Just a BIT.
