Midtown Bungalow Dollhouse Techniques

What started off with me cleaning up my craft room for fall break, turned into working on my bungalow. Its modeled after homes I've seen in the historic district in the midtown area. I tried to go for a semi-craftsman/70's style, after I found the Hallmark ornaments I just knew I had to use them in this house.

I hated the dead space in the bathroom so I decided to just hid it.
I bought the bathroom as a set but I made the shower surrounding the tub and the back wall out of foam board, wood, vinyl tile sheets spray painted, chair molding and the bottom half of a porch rail painted silver, plastic packaging.

originally this was suppose to be a closet


I am not that crazy about the shower head 
The shower "knob" is a part of a snap and a brad

I covered the fire place with tile patterned scrapbook paper.


I covered the ceiling with molding I bought from miniatures.com. I precut and stained before gluing to the ceiling with the house turned upside down.


 I used these wooden dollies on the kitchen ceiling.

    All the pictures are great, but I LOVE your layout for the bathroom. Fantastic use of an awkward space. It looks perfect.
    Big hug,
