This was such a fun Christmas project.
My grandpa, my mom’s dad, was a woodworker. He built my mom a beautiful dollhouse. My sisters and I played with it as children. But for the last ten years, its been stored away in a corner of the garage. Since my grandfather passed away two years ago, my mom’s been wanting to get it out and fix it up.
For Christmas, my sister Maren unearthed it from the depths of the garage, disinfected it(mice, eek!), replaced the floorboards, and had it re-varnished. My sisters Sarah and Abby bought cute little furnishings for the rooms. And I made the curtains for the windows(the original glass windows had all been broken out).
Luckily, I had some material from my Grandma Ruby’s fabric stash. I think it was originally curtains; sky blue with little white polka dots.
