So I’ve decided to officially join the party. I’ve been stalking the rest of the crew for awhile now 😉 My found dollhouse needs A LOT of work. I rescued it from slowly rotting away into oblivion. It had been sitting outside for at least 5 years (probably more) and was used as a cat shelter. The people who owned it should be on Animal Hoarders. Seriously. Thankfully the house itself doesn’t smell like cat pee…just its environment 😉 They originally bought it from an architecture student over at UC Berkeley. Pretty fab, huh?
It’s currently receiving a major cleaning and restoration from a professional model builder. Don’t worry he’s keeping the rustic charm on the outside! He’s sanding the floors and sealing the wood floors and getting it all ready for me to do the “fun” stuff.
In the meantime I’ve purchased a couple of small things, but I’m seriously WAY behind. I’m thinking I might be able to finish one or two rooms before the challenge deadline on Dec. 15th. I’ll try my best though!
Here are a couple of my purchases:
Notice a lil’ theme going on? I’m thinking Ralph Lauren meets Badgley Mischka. I need to work on colors, wall/window treatments and well, pretty much everything. But it’s a start! I’m hoping to have it ready for Arden to play with…in a few years…. 😉 This kid better like horses. Ha!
