    I am building my very first dollhouse! My intention is to build it to look like a house from the Tudor era, which is one of my favorite periods of history to read about. We'll see how well I do!

    Day 9

    Thanks! I used a walnut stain, then a semi-gloss polyurethane finish.
  3. Oh my goodness, this was my first dollhouse! I got it for Christmas in 1979 or 80, and I loved it! I remember the avocado green bathroom and the harvest gold kitchen, and the state of the art stereo set for the living room. I had all the furniture and dolls as well, including the dog. Do you remember a hutch that came with plug in lamps that lit up? My brother and I also used to play with Star Wars people in that house. It satisfied my dollhouse itch for a while, until I got a 'real' dollhouse in 1985 - the Tennyson that I just finished rehabbing. And now that that is finished, I started build
  4. Hi Rebecca, I just finished rehabbing my childhood dollhouse, which had not really been damaged over the years just neglected, but still needed a lot of work. It was definitely a labor of love, it's wonderful to resurrect a beloved dollhouse and all its memories! I used wood flooring sheets from Houseworks for my house, which are thin strips of wood veneer attached to paper and I loved how they turned out. I polyurethaned the sheets, used paper to make templates of my floors, and then cut the sheets out and taped them in with strong double-sided tape. You can find them in the flooring section

    Childhood Tennyson

    I was given this dollhouse for Christmas, 1985 when I was 12. My dad and sister put it together for me, and my mom made the curtains and wallpapered the rooms. Recently I rescued it from their garage and I have had a lot of fun renovating it!
  6. No, it used to be but not anymore. I decided not to tackle rewiring the house for lights at this time. I might get some battery powered lights.
  7. Thank you! This house does mean a great deal to me, and I'm glad I'm able to improve it while still maintaining it as the dollhouse I loved as a kid. It's turned into a really fun hobby.

    Bed detail

    Thank you! My grandmother is gone now so I'm really glad I still have this quilt that she made for me, and she also gave me the handkerchief.

    Bed detail

    Haha, right? I have already been thinking, if I decided to buy a dollhouse to build from scratch, which one would I want...

    Furniture Kit

    Thank you, and this kit is not easy! I'm working on the dresser now and it's more challenging than the bed...I actually can't believe that I put it together without help when I was 13.

    Parlor Floor

    Thank you! It comes in thin hardwood sheets, not iron on or adhesive. I used separate double sided adhesive sheets to attach it.
  12. No, I decided not to put in new wiring because of expense. I will probably add a couple battery powered lights later.
