Dollhouse Bookshelf

I love this sweet little(actually very big) bookcase. This is another wood working project that I put the hubs to work on:o) He was actually very proud of this one. I got the plans from Knock Off Wood. It took the duration of Saturday and some of Sunday afternoon to finish the bookcase.  I painted it on Monday and had it in her room by Tuesday. The white paint came from Walmart. Kilz brand. The pink paint I had on hand left over from painting the mural...yes I painted it, but don't tell anyone:o) I found this mural online, loved it, and halfway thru painting it, I realized I was "copying" someone else's work...oops! Well it's not like I am trying to sell it or anything....

The tree blowing over the dollhouse looks intentional, but it was by pure decorating accident. I love it!
I love the little window cut-outs. The kids love the bookshelf, even though it's for S.R.:o) They have been playing with it everyday since it's debut:o) I know that it will get lots of lovin' for years to come!!

Both the painting and the house look so pretty! Your kids are lucky to have so many things made with love from mom and dad.
