Saga's dollhouse

Post by caysa on Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:25 am

This is what Anna and I (with a little help from Timo to build the sauna part) made for Saga for Christmas.
I had this old cupboard (about 1 meter high) with a glass door and it came to my mind that it would be perfect for a dollhouse to hand on the wall. And the door keeps Aarni away.......

Door closed:




Door open:




Bedroom / kids room:




Living room:




Kitchen / Dining:




Bath and sauna:

What a wonderful house! How long did it take to build and furnish, and how did you keep it secret from Saga? That is a large present to conceal!

As tha cupboard was old it actually stood up against the wall - facing it - already a few days before we started working on it. Saga wasnt interested in it at all ! We worked on it for maybe 3 days while Saga was in kindergarten. It wasn't that difficult really - we found a little shops that had all sorts of fun things. Some we made ourselves and some are bought. The wallpapering was the most difficult part - to find a glue that wouldnt destroy the paper but that still would stick to the old paint inside the cupboard.
On christmas eve, while Saga was napping we placed it by the tree and wrapped it right where it stood lol!

For a long time she did not say anything - she just looked at it....

It was so worth all the effort

Oh Caysa! You did a great job on that! What a wonderful way to recycle an old cupboard. I can only imagine how pleased Saga was to get that. You are really the bestest Grandma ever.

It's so! so! beautiful!

I want one for me

It remembers me when I was little, my mother and grandmother made a whole set of clothes (for day, for night, for summer, for winter) to a baby doll (and the same for my sister), and a carrycot and all the linen... I will never forget that and I was maybe 7 or 8 years old Smile

I'm sure Saga will allways be delighted with that sunny
