Howdy! This is my entry for the challenge, it is a doll house i got from a huge garage sale a while ago, with moldy carpet, blue and orange wall paper, and no furniture what so ever. The outside had brick paper and a paper shingle type roof(shingles printed on a piece of paper). I am sorry I don't have any pictures of it. I went through a process of ripping off the wall paper and repainting every wall, even the ceiling, pulling flooring down (carpet and tile. The carpet was just heavy duty fabric.), putting finish wood everywhere, windows, floor and ceiling..., And making all the furniture and wall decorations. In the pics, I made all the furniture out of balsa wood and cardboard, and the little chair you see at the table are made out of bottle caps and balsa wood. I hope you like it!

Great job, it's beautiful and I'm sure it is quite the overhaul of the original!
