Another Dollhouse Comes Home
I'd already begun painting the window trim and roof when this picture was taken. My wife returned from Chicago with this gem. It had been painted pink all over (a very poor paint job). I sanded the pink down to remove paint drips, etc. Rebecca is interested in retaining the "shabby-pink" look.
She found it for 1/2 off its $2.99 price at a Salvation Army store. We found it on the internet listed for $149 new (a Melissa and Doug creation). The inside shows NO wear whatsoever.
