My niece desperately wanted a castle for her dolls for Christmas but we were unable to find her one that wasn't a hunk of junk! So my SIL and I headed to Hobby Lobby with our 40% off coupons and bought a kit for a Victorian house! I had 3 days to get it together!  Shocked Shocked And I some how managed to do it too! It took about 40 hours of work but I did it!




everything had to be painted and assembled, the only thing that came pre-assembled was the floor. I will tell you what my kids will probably not get a doll house of their own!  Cry I was ready to set this thing on fire!  Angry but in the end it was so worth it!




I love the wainscoting! I wallpapered the walls with scrap book paper. Some of it is a bit wonky because we figured 3 sheets per room, and didn't take into consideration some of the papers were a one way pattern  Embarrassed










the princess room on the roof! I have more things to go inside the hose but they didn't get done in time!  Undecided

What an awesome sacrifice to make a kiddo happy for Christmas! 
I think you did a fabulous job.

You did all of this in only three days?!?  My hat's off to you.  When I build a miniature house, it takes me weeks to get it even close to what you've done.

Nice work.

Fantastic work on a tight deadline! We bought a huge kit at an auction for $5 years and years ago... then had a son. I gave the kit to my sister but it's still in her basement.

thanks for all the kind words! It was defiantly worth the time! It's not perfect but it's about as perfect as I could get!
