Marci




On the inside I ripped out all the carpet and painted the ceilings white. I have decided to keep the wallpaper in these two rooms.


but I did remove the wallpaper in these other two rooms. And removed the stairs. Stairs can look nice but I feel like they take up too much room space so no stairs for this house. At least I don't think so.

  1. This is adorable! You're doing a great job. I am partial to Yorkies (have one of my own) so I love that little touch.

  2. You know I'm always eager to see your miniature projects. I love your special collections and transformations. That master bedroom is gorgeous. Love that rocking chair in the kitchen too.

  3. Gina,
    Now you know that i am loving this , don't you??? Great job but it is a tedious job and don't you feel like you need smaller fingers to work on this?? LOL!!
    As i looked at some of my photos of Nelson Crest, I realize that some i may need to give her another coat of paint as she is 6 years old now. But that may wait until I am retired because that may be quite a project. As i mentioned in my email, i used grass train paper for the base and she is on a turn table. We bought the turntable hardware at Lowes and screwed a board cut to the size of the round table she sits on to the turn table hard ware. This way, I can spin her around to show the inside ...

    hugs,

  5. Hi Gina! Thanks so much for visiting me and leaving such sweet comments :) Your doll house is amazing! I think my favorite so far is the bedroom with the pink bows. I love all the details. I made a doll house for my daughter when she was six. I turns out that my beautiful girl was/is not much a doll person! I'm going to take it out of storage in a couple of weeks for my 6 year old niece who will be home on furlough from Uganda. I think she's going to love it! Have a blessed week, Diana

  6. I love the updates you've made to the doll house! We bought a kit and put one together over the summer. The kids have a lot of fun with it, and I gave them my old furniture from the house I had when I was young. Thanks for sharing! :)

  7. Your little darling doll house is going to be perfect like everything else you show us.
    I like the library in the farm house they were rich farmers and read a lot and the little Yorkie fits right in because the lady of the house wanted an inside dogie not
    a big farm dog in the mansion LOL
    It is fun gathering all the adorable items for a doll house I did that back in 1985 for my youngest daughter

  10. Hi Gina,

    So nice to meet you!

    What a beautiful house! I can't believe the detail that has gone into its decorating. All the rooms are very pretty, and my favourite is also the master bedroom for its wallpaper, furniture and area rug! Can't wait to see how it all turns out!

  12. Oh Gina! Love it! Absolutely LOVE the dollhouse. You are doing a great job. Oh, please tell me how you are going to include a yard! How?

    This is going to be a piece of art when you finish. Anne of Green Gables would LOVE it, too. Susan

  14. Oh, I could see where remodeling a beautiful doll house like yours could be very fun and addictive. I'd better steer clear of this, I could totally get into this! Yours is coming together to be just gorgeous. Thank you for sharing this at my History & Home link party, take care. Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

  15. Hello Gina,
    Just wanted to pop in and say I'm home, home to the land of Green Gables. If ever you want any pictures of the inside or outside of GG let me know I have them. The house is coming along wonderfully, amazing what you have done. I wouldn't have been so brave to remove the staircase but great idea. Great find for only $10 and just wanted to add I found a fainting chair that I plan on setting close to my new oven in the summer kitchen, take care, have fun

  20. Wow! A whole house makeover -- you have so much energy, Gina. Subtle changes to the exterior but the gingerbread trim adds so much charm. Looking good!
