Recently my niece Alicia came to stay with me for 10 days. She really liked my Gnome dollhouse that's currently a WIP and she wanted to make herself one like it but for Fairies instead of Gnomes. I had this small wooden dollhouse stored away that I was keeping for a future renovation so I gave it to her and she went to work!
Unfortunately we didn't take a video tour of the before and what a bummer because it would have made a great video spin reveal!!
golden oak stain and a sealer the floor turned out so pretty! You'll see more of the floor in the next post.
She tore off the roof, the front porch and all the frames. She made a cardboard roof with the bottom edges of the roof uneven to give it a more natural look and decided on pine cone shingles.
Once the gorgeous roof was done it was time to build up the bark.
After it was all dried it was time for painting! Alicia did a dark base coat then highlighted that with a lighter color.
I never would have thought of using potpourri but how wonderfully creative. Alicia will end up using some of this on her fairy too. You'll see that in the next post :)
