My fiance brought home a doll house the neighbor was trashing. It was badly beaten and abused and had definitely seen better days, but we could fix it. We decided to give it an overhaul and gift it to her best friends daughter.

Step 1: Dis-assembly

Picture of Dis-assembly
This house is a pretty nice one. It came apart pretty easily Just keep track of the screws, nuts and bolts. Its always nice to have an extra pair of hands while doing this.

Did you paint directly over the decals that were already on the house or did you remove them first?

I did paint over them but I scraped the loose ones off and sanded the whole thing first.

Thank you very much!

Thanks Bob, she really is enjoying it!

That is just beautiful! I love that you put in that chair rail! The details really do it!

Aww Shucks!
Thanks, :) The little girl it went to is just loving it!


That is adorable! It is bigger than her! Are you thinking of making little furniture for it? I just LOVE little furniture! I wish I could sit on little furniture :D

Yes indeed! She has already asked for a refrigerator and beds.
