Carissa's New Place

Carissa- "Hello folks.  I've just bought my first home, which is tremendously exciting and I have a quick tour for you!  Just keep in mind I haven't done much decorating and many of my rooms are quite empty, however that won't be for long.  I've been looking for an excuse to do some shopping and now I have one."
 
 
"The living room."
 
 
"The restroom."
 
 
"The bedroom."

 
"The room that sealed the deal!  The kitchen."

 
 
"I am completely in love with this place!"
 
 
"Thanks for spending some time with me.  I'll see you later.  Bye for now."
 
...........................................................................................
 
 
So, no more sub-leasing for Carissa!
 
I found this dollhouse at the thrift and did a complete renovation.  The house was pink inside and out and covered with tons of scrapbook paper.
 
 
I stripped the paper, gave it a few coats of paint and installed flooring.  But, I had to add my own scrapbook paper to the walls that were too damaged even for paint.
 
There are still a few things that need to be done, like window and wall trimmings.  So, it's a work in progress. :)

    1. Thanks Janelle! I used two 12 in. x 12 in. vinyl tiles for each room, that I picked up from Home Depot (they range from about .39 cents to $1 and some change). They're very easy to install, since they're peel and stick.

  7. You are so lucky to find something like this! It is amazing. I love the kitchen and the attic area will be great for storage.

    1. Thanks Connor! Finding this house was truly amazing and for it to have an attic was just like the icing on the cake. I'm sure it will fill up fast.

  8. Great job on the house Adrian! I love everything especially the bathroom. Did you take a before pic of the house? I am curious as to which house it was originally?

    1. No and I was so upset with myself for not taking a before picture. Ugh!! When I got the house, I just dived right in with the fix ups. But, it looks like it was a custom build though. The best part is, that it doesn't seem to be extra complicated. Been thinking about building one for another one of my girls.
