So, after seeing some amazing whimsy houses on here me and my sister Shy decided to buy a flat pack house and make one for our Mum's birthday.   Cheesy

We both love it now it's done but it was a bloody nightmare....it came with almost no instructions and took weeks to finish. 

However, our Mum absolutely loved it and it was nice to do a bit of a joint crafting (we usually craft very different things) although we did have some artistic differences!   Grin

There's glitter round all the window frames and little gems on the railings on the outside but they didn't really show up on the photo's...oh well...

Well, here it is...

Yes, Ariel and Iron Man both live there.   Wink

Individual rooms...there's proper carpet and some "wooden" flooring inside...

This out of scale cake really annoyed Sharon  Tongue

I'd love to have one of my own but I do not think I could cope with building another...the first was hard enough and that was a shared effort.   Grin

C&C's welcome.

Life's a garden.  Dig it.

looks almost like the house I had when I was younger, my mother must have thrown it or given it  away because we don't find it any more Sad

I love the colours Cheesy a bit too disney for my taste but they are nice. I am sure your mother loves it but it looks like it was meant as a gift for a child, please don't take it the wrong way. I love the details, like glitter  around the windows and the gems, don't think I would ever have thought about that.

And the inside is just adorable, especially the birthday cake Cheesy

Our brother and my boyfriend both thought it looked like an Adams Family house!

This is the same model I'm tinkering with right now!  Wink

I loves the wee painting hanging in the hall and the little cake is adorable.

I actually wanted to get this same house to mess with, but can't afford it just now. So I was mooning over miniatures and thinking of what I'd do for about a week after getting this into my head. Lo and behold, I'm walking home one day and there's a doll house on the sidewalk waiting for the garbage! It's not as cool as this, but since it was free I'm not afraid to modify it to my heart's content. Yay for putting out the vibes!

Hope your mom loves the house!
