I started this house over a year ago and it still needs alot of work. I am entering this dollhouse in the Undersized Urbanite Dollhouse Contest. Contest deadline is May 2013...whew gives me lots of time. I hope you will vote for me, I will definitley be asking when the house is done.

I wasn't happy with the floors, so I redid them with popsicle sticks. The second floor turned out really well but the first floor not so much. Dag nammit I forgot to sand it before starting the stain. Plus when I started gluing the sticks down, I was using white glue, hot glue was definitely better and less messy.

See what happened to the floors...I can't even look at it...all that work and urgh!! What can I do now...

Cover it with a rug...aka small piece of fabric. I'll fix it later.

I still have so much to do on the house before the contest is over. 
I want it to be fabulous.


Closet doors
Furniture for second floor
Fix flooring on first floor
More furniture

I better get started...

I will post pictures of my progress.
