Dollhouse Cottage Painted White

It's pretty amazing what white paint can accomplish! I got a little dollhouse and I wanted it to fit in with our decor. My two paper dolls live here now. They haven't spent their first night in it yet, but they are happy and going to plant a cottage garden around it.

A little moss from outside gives this dollhouse soft footings! (The little boy needed something to water.)

Furnishing are needed. Do they have a craiglist for dolls? Just kidding. They will have to be made by myself and it's going to be a fun challenge. Not that I need any more challenges...but this will be fun! And it will have a white decor, Scandinavian and French whites.

This is the before picture. It went from cute to ethereal! The spray paint I used was purchased from Kmart and it's Rust-oleum 2x. They advertise that in one can you get two can's worth of paint and you only need one coat to fully cover metal, wood or plastic. This was a plastic type of resin dollhouse and I love this paint worked! Wow did it ever cover it in one coat. I am so impressed with it and I still have lots of paint left in the spray can that cost 3.99 which is reasonable.

I am connecting with White Wednesday.

Show off your cottage Monday.

Very cute. I have an old dollhouse that needs to be remade for my grandchildren. Good idea. I will maybe paint white then wallpaper with scrapbook paper. Looking forward to any furnishings you make.
