|I found some fake flowers at the dollar store and discovered that I could unravel them from their wire stems to make perfect mini flowers. I filled the flower boxes and even made little floral trees for each side of the front door.|
|I hand-painted the shutters and was quite pleased with the effect.|
I had wallpapered the four main rooms of the house back in 2009, but the attic was bare. I put in a small dividing wall and made the attic into a nursery and a bathroom with new wallpaper.
|The maid just took a pie out of the oven.|
|I added 1950s tin pieces (stove, sink, fridge and Hoosier cupboard) to the kitchen. The red table and chairs are also Strombecker.|
|The Schoenhut shower is so cute.|
The wooden furniture in the nursery and bathroom was made by Schoenhut in the 1920s, but the chaise lounge is Wisconsin furniture.
I made the leafy plants out of masking tape over floral wire and then painted the leaves. That was fun. I plan to make more.
I am very pleased with my upgraded house. I think it looks great now and I had such fun doing it!
