Imagination Dollhouse Christmas Gift
I took advantage of the Black Friday Deal and bought the Imagination Dollhouse Kit from Home Depot for $68! http://www.hd-imagination-house.com/IntroVideo.html The kit is still the same price in the stores by the way, I don't see it online anymore but they still have some in the stores around here. This kit was bought as a gift for my young cousin. Myself, my aunt and my mother, we all did our parts to have it ready by Christmas. I made most of the furniture to save money and to make it more durable for child's play and my mother made the bed linens. The living room furniture is donated from my childhood dollhouse and the kitchen and bathroom sets came from Hobby Lobby. I kept it simple (for me), just a little bashing on the porch, I added the scalloped trim across the top. In the bathroom and kitchen I used real floor tiles for durability in those rooms. I used a real stain for the first time instead of my faux stain technique with acrylic paint. http://jocelynsdollhouse.blogspot.com/2011/06/floors-and-doors.html My cousin really liked the house and so did her parents (her mom thanked me for "her" dollhouse lol). I added trim around the windows and doors last, some pictures show the trim missing. P.S. Did I mention I did all of this in 7 days!
