I recently completed my first dollhouse kit and of course I couldn’t resist the urge to decorate it. I am not sure which part is more fun! The build was great and picking wallpaper and flooring was equally as fun, but the tiny furnishings and accessories are captivating. The kit I purchased, The Coventry Cottage by Greenleaf, included some furniture that needed to be built as well. I found I enjoyed building the furniture as much as the house. I didn’t get to fancy with these pieces because to be honest I was so excited to see the finished project that I hurried a bit when I should have slowed down and cultivated more detail. However, I did stain the pieces and add cushions.
I purchased some accessory kits as well. The Chrysnbon cook stove was really neat to watch come together.
I also put together a nice corner shelf and bathroom furnishings. These pieces were equally fun to assemble. I would like to try building some pieces from scratch instead of from kits just to see how those come together. I think I am hooked on the world of miniatures.
