Dolls house

I had, had my eye out for a lovely wooden dolls house for some time and I finally found one on gumtree which I purchased for $30 and needed a bit of a freshen up.

As she wouldn't be able to play with it right away I had to keep it hidden from Poppy, which wasn't an easy task as its quiet large.

Firstly I gave it a much needed clean and paint. Good old Pop had some white paint in his garage which was perfect for freshening it up.


Next I got some wall paper samples from Spoon Flower. Which wasn't an easy task as they have such a huge, beautiful range.

 The wall paper was easy to apply and looked effective.

filled with some furniture (a bulk lot from ebay was the most cost effective.)

some hand made trimmings

and one very excited four year old

I can already tell it will be a very loved dolls house for years to come.
