I just got this little cutie


I'm going to get this kit for her little house: http://www.miniatures.com/Vintage-Tr...na-P19087.aspx
Problem is, I'm having a lot of trouble finding little retro furniture.  Anyone have ideas or tutorials for dollhouse scale retro couches, chairs, and beds?

So cute!  The link was broken for me, was this the right one?  If so, I love it!! It matches her personality perfectly!

For furniture and other stuff, I have been spending a lot of my time at "My Froggy Stuff" on youtube.  I am at work now, and can't get there from here.  It should be a simple search.  She has done several different versions of beds, couches, chairs and tables.  Her videos are generally directed at kids, but she has a lot of great starting points!  She tries to give starting points for several different scales, so just make it appropriately scaled for your critter.  I am seeing the daybed with pull-out trundle, a picnic table, and a grill as necessary things.  Look for "Robecca Steams Cabin" tour -- there are a couple of "rustic looking" things in there.

Just remember to "one up" things.  Instead of cardboard, try using thin wood sheets.  Instead of clay from the toy section, or flour and salt, try polymer clay.

Yes, it's the little vintage trailor. Thanks for tipping me off to the YouTube stuff! I had no idea where to start.

I made a little couch using a tutorial from "My Froggy Stuff."  I didn't have everything on hand, but for a first attempt I think I did pretty well.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

I went to the store and got some better supplies.  Here's the couch I made:


I decided I wanted to go with a more woodsy cabin look for Calamity.  I have a bookshelf I keep my dolls and sewing stuff on and I'm making a couple shelves into rooms for them.

ETA:
I've been crafting a lot today, and here is Calamity's house so far:




And here is the start of Astrid's room:



I have a fairly large bookshelf that I keep some of my crafting stuff on.  I was able to clear off 2 shelves.  One shelf has Astrid's room and Calamity's cabin, and the shelf underneath will have my other doll's room.  I think it's moving along pretty well so far.

Thank you very much.  Smiley  They are both Asian Ball Jointed Dolls (BJD).  Astrid is vinyl so she wasn't as expensive as Calamity and my other dolls, who are resin.  It's a bit of an expensive hobby because these dolls can't be mass-produced and have to be made by hand.  And that fact that it's kind of an untapped specialty market drives the price up, too.  Astrid is a Hujoo "Freya" (available from junkyspot.com)and is about 9" tall, and Calamity is a Doll Factory "Dalsoo" and about 4 1/2" tall.  There are a lot of different sizes.  My other doll, Eva, is about 12" and I have one on order that's roughly 17".  They make sizes that are both bigger and smaller than my dolls.  That's probably more information than you needed, but I love to talk about my dolls.  If you're interested in learning more and/or collecting, feel free to PM me for more info.  I can give you links to good web sites for this hobby.
