A Whole lot of Vintage Dollhouse Furniture

Happy Happy....
The Dollhouse will soon be furnished ..


Oh yes.. look at what came in the mail on Friday


All different pieces of Vintage Dollhouse Furniture
I had so much fun unpacking the box and 
giggled with delight!


Most of it is Vintage 1950's Mid Century
Strombecker Wooden Furniture


Today I took a little bit of Old English
and it worked wonders on the wee
Walnut pieces

The Box was pretty much filled with 
Strombecker with just a few more
contemporary pieces.


Cannot wait to get the inside walls
painted and some wallpaper up!
I'll keep you posted~

Have a Great Week~

Cute! And I'm not even into dollhouses:) I should say "not yet", because if we get a granddaughter, I just might have to do one.

I could totally get into fixing up a dollhouse. It was my favorite pastime when I was young. No baby dolls or Barbie's, just my little imaginary family in one of those tin/metal snap together dollhouses!

You have some really neat things. I'll come back over to see how your new furnishings look! :)

XO,
Jane

SO MUCH FUN!What a treasure trove of furniture. I LOVE redoing dollhouses! Once I found one curbside, redecorated it and sold it for $$$. I almost kept it but...money talks. ;)

Oh Diane! How wonderful- I had no idea you were fixing up a dollhouse. I had to go back and look through all your previous posts about it! And what a wonderful group of furniture you found!!

Anyway, as far as the wallpaper goes, I have always used glue sticks. They really probably aren't the best, because they're not as sticky as other glues, but they're fairly clean to use, and I haven't had any major problems so far. One tip is to use three pieces of paper- one for each wall- that way you don't have seams showing. And I always "dry" fit the paper into the house first, before I glue it, just to make sure it fits well.

Good luck- feel free to ask me any more questions if you need. I'll be checking back to see the progress! :)
