As noted before, the dollhouse has been taken over by birds. And as it comes together the story of the inhabitant unfolds.
Here's the kitchen and dining room- open concept of course. The table and chairs, shelf, and trick or treat bag were from my childhood. I made everything else (minus the rolling pin, trick or treat bag, pots, owl, and few other tidbits).
It still could use some upgrades and final details, but it's a good kitchen, and I'd be happy to do my cooking here.

I'm making progress, step by step, on the dollhouse. The next room I tackled was the bathroom, which was fun and simple. I had the set of porcelain fixtures from my childhood, and decided to use them again here. However, the bathroom needed a cabinet of some kind, and so I set about building one. Balsa wood continues to amaze me. However, the craft glue leaves a residue that cracks under the paint, making the final product look unfinished.
I rearranged things in the tiny bathroom and decided it had to be a half bath. With the new cabinet, there was just no room for the tub. I repainted the mirror and towel rack I had. Then made a few rolls of TP, a toilet brush, some soap (both boxed and a bar), and a jar of cotton balls. There's even a New York Times to read while you're in there.
