Since moving into our new apartment a few weeks ago, I need to be working on this project like I need a hole in the head - basically this is the last thing I should be doing - yet I start each morning by working on this house and listening to the news.

Here's a recap of what I did this week:

- Dusted & cleaned the exterior
- Removed the window shutters for painting
- Removed most of the wallpaper from all eight rooms
-Discovered that the interior is painted white, which will make my life much easier!

My mom sent me this picture this week - I was SO excited when I got this dollhouse on Christmas morning! Here you can see how it looked over 25 years ago!

What do you think? Anyone else out there have an old dollhouse they would love to redo? 

Don't forget to say hi below... comments are always appreciated!

  1. so cute Ashley! I just got mine out of storage (it's not here yet, the storage unit is in CO so some friends are collecting it) - Dad made mine for Christmas circa 1978?? I'll never forget coming down and seeing the sun shining through those windows! (and 40 years later, there still are no shingles on 1/2 of the roof - he ran out of time and never finished - part of the charm, lol!) can't wait to see how yours turns out - need to plan my own reno! thanks for sharing the progress!
