Painting The Dollhouse

When last we left the haunted dollhouse, I mentioned I was painting the ceilings. Well that's done and so are most of the rooms. And, I know, it doesn't look too haunted yet.

This will be the parlor/living room. I bought this wallpaper; what I used on the other rooms I already had from previous projects. I had trouble in the last dollhouse with the paper peeling off the walls. So I went a different route this time and mod podged the paper to card stock then taped that to the walls. That's not working so well either. Either I need more tape or something else.

This is the kitchen.

This is one of the attic rooms. I intended to add more coats of paint but liked the way this turned out. Could be old and haunted.

This is going to be a small, narrow bathroom (gee, just like my real bathroom!). I'm showing this because the paper I used for the flooring is actually scrapbook paper. A good alternative in some cases to dollhouse papers which cost more.

I also added a house number. My daughter wanted 1313, but I didn't want to be accused of ripping off The Munsters.
Have a nice day!


  1. What a fun project to work on! Have FUN! Hugs!

  2. It's all coming together. Can you just mod podge the paper directly to the walls?

  3. Looking good! You have gotten a lot done. Love the brick in the kitchen.have a great weekend.

  4. Looking great Diane and who knew that they made wallpaper for dollhouses?! I think the scrapbook paper would work great since it is usually heavier weight. Love the house number and thanks for reminding me about The Munsters!

  5. You have done a lot of work on your dollhouse. It's looking good. It won't be long before you are filling it up with furniture.
