  1. From the album: Orchid Shabby Chic

    After some pointers from a group I'm in, I was able to use painter's tape to hold the pieces up enough to get a good look at the dry fit. I plan on building on to each side of the Orchid (as of right now, anyway) and I think I will use the bay window opening on the left side for a set of French doors instead. I had also originally imagined a spiral staircase in the house, but I need to figure out where it will go before I glue anything together.
  2. This is my first dollhouse project after years of dreaming (and Pinning) about one. I'm using a Greenleaf Orchid and planning on adding two extensions, one on either side, and possibly a small garden. I have always loved the shabby chic style so as of right now, this is the style I hope to use most of in this project. My two furry helpers may be heavily featured in this album as well.
  3. From the album: Orchid Shabby Chic

    I had a few other projects I was hoping to finish by now, but I spent the last few weeks telling myself I could open up the kit during Spring Break. Yesterday I broke out the kit and started popping out the pieces so they could be painted, sanded, etc. The main floor of the dollhouse is warped - not terribly, but I need to do some research about how best to fix it before I glue anything else in place.
  4. Oh thank you!! the picture shows up great. Do you have a picture of the whole front piece? Sorry, I'm just very curious! I want to do something similar and I'm trying to do a lot of research before I get my hands dirty :)
  5. I'm not sure if it's my computer or not, but this image didn't load did you post it anywhere else? I'd love to see how you did this.
  6. This is GORGEOUS. Simple, but absolutely gorgeous.
  7. From the album: Orchid Shabby Chic

    This is the first picture I took, to remember the date. Plus my little helper (Binks) wanted to check it out. I was so excited to grab the kit for around $20. I am a full time student and on a limited budget; my plan is to DIY as much as I can! I already have a handful of ideas and started putting together a binder where I'll be keeping everything including my instructions, paint swatches, fabric swatches, and sketches. It will likely be a few more weeks before I am able to start construction so it is quite fun to work on my binder for the time being.
