This is what the house used to look like:
And this is what it looks like now:
The house is inspired by vintage items and modern items too. I wanted it to be a small guest house or studio apartment. The landscaping is coffee grounds, garden stones made from paper clay, and random fossils I bought at a yard sale. The small paver stones are slate tiles that are made for dollhouse shingles that I broke apart. The grass is grass mat for train scenery. All of the plants are from Micheal's. I used some of their flowers and took them apart and then put them back together with glue and florists tape. The front mat is corkpaper that I painted with a white border. The atomic planter is by ModPodMiniatures. The watering can and the other potted plant are minis that I have had for probably 20 years in my collection. The concrete steps are wood that is painted with matte gel and then painted again. I used the tutorial from Otterine's website and it was excellent!
And here is the bathroom. It was hard to get a good photo with my camera.
The shower head is a ear bud from a earphone set that I glued to a toothpick and then drilled a hole into a Popsicle stick with tiny stickers as buttons. I got the idea from Lyssa's blog. The drain is a drilled hole in the floor. The shower shelf is card stock. The shampoos are Rement and Barbie. The shower divider is a target place mat.
miniatures.com that I painted with yellow spray paint. The bathroom accessories and sink are the Chrysnbon sets. The rectangular part of the mirror is Lundby that I took apart and then glued a new circle mirror to. The wallpaper is vintage 1960's wallpaper that I love.
ModPodMiniatures. The dresser is Vintage Petite Princess. The rug is just a place mat from Target that I cut up.
Elf Miniatures, Rement, MiWorld, and various things I've collected through the years. The inspiration board is made from a Formica sample I got for free from Home Depot. It's boomerang print, although its kind of hard to see. The decal on the mirror is a vintage Hallmark sticker. The little sandals have been in my collection for years.
The poster over the bed is a vintage calling card from the 40's I think. I collect them and they are perfect for dollhouses. The pillows are Otterine, and SmallWorldStitchery. The cup with pencils is a cap and painted toothpicks. The clothes in the basket are all vintage Barbie clothes. The basket is from Elf miniatures. All of the beauty products are Barbie. Bratz, and MiWorld. The little red bear is from a kids consignment store near me and I think he may have been a pencil topper.
And here's some more picture I took with my Iphone. The Iphone was so much better for getting inside of the tiny space.
I can't wait to see everyone's entry! This was fun!
