  1. I love a good roombox: https://www.ebay.com/itm/174735984583
  2. 8k for an unfinished house???! I love it when they say "an empty canvas for you to decorate" - ok, but I'm not paying 8k for an empty canvas, folks. I want some art...
  3. Is this a customized Artply Franklin? I like it. I love the interior door shot. https://www.ebay.com/itm/dollhouse-Vintage/184750434464
  4. I appreciate the house more now that I read the article. He loved building it. I totally get it now.
  5. Yes - thanks Fov - that was a nice article.
  6. Definitely needs some aging - to dirty it up into an antique - https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/more-furniture-collectibles/childrens-furniture/19th-century-gothic-revival-walnut-swinging-cradle/id-f_7355513/ that real life version is darker, but caning is/was originally lighter in tone - and aged into a nice darker/grimier tone.
  7. Did anyone else notice the indoor pool on the 50k house? Wow! Those were fun links! Winchester-mania!
  8. I love that they flat out called that one house a Winchester. I love it. It's huge and looks to have 70s/80s interior. It's amazing.
  9. This doorway piece seems lovely for $15: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-12-Scale-Dollhouse-Wood-Arch-Kit/254930162676
  10. When I was young (insert theme song) - I wanted the "Sounds like Home" dollhouse - mostly because it said it had a "frying bacon" sound in the kitchen, and "running water" sounds. I so wanted it - but alas, it was too much back in the day, And now here is on craigslist for $800 and it a whole lot more "too much" lol. Did anyone ever have this? I think it is best that it remains off limits for me - I think I might have been disappointed, I loved how realistic the furniture looked. Back then. https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/tag/d/yamhill-sounds-like-home-dollhouse-nib/72843
  11. Same here...I was thinking that was one trippy house! lol
  12. Having experienced a 3 year old with a dollhouse, I'd actually recommend washable, removable contact paper. There will be food and liquids going into that house up until age 7 and that's if they opt to play with it (amazing how many kids are stuck to screens). And of course, you don't want to be in a "don't play with it like that" mode for a 3 year old, lol.
  13. For kids, I'd go with scrapbook paper like Lee said. There are packs of papers closer to your theme. Quality is great and the paper goes on smoothly. Otherwise, finding a real kids paper you like - shrinking it and printing it out - is an option. I print my own paper for a lot of special projects.
