My Barbie house needs more attention, unfortunately I haven't had the time to devote to this project. I have been making the most out of small moments here and there to add a feature or two. I am actively searching for furniture and plants on my shopping trips to antique stores and scour ebay.
The bookcase house isn't that deep - 12" to be exact - and that means large furniture pieces are not an option. I found a backdrop of a fireplace and printed it out. It's too short to extend the height of the wall, I will need to print another copy and use a solid piece of the brick to fill in the lower portion.
Temporarily the dolls are using a crate for a coffee table. It is difficult to find vintage furniture and it takes more time than I currently have available to begin making furniture for this living room/kitchen.
Ken has no dresser or nightstand, space is limited in his bedroom too. I made a SIMPLE wall unit using large craft sticks. I have yet to paint and accessorize it. I think it's a good alternative to large bulky furniture piece.
Ah the kitchen! I have no space whatsoever for bulky boxy appliances. I colored then printed out an old appliance ad. The refrigerator is 11" and doesn't hit to the floor. Once I have a table in place, I'm hoping the lower areas will be covered. It is the height of the appliances I am most concerned with. When the dolls stand near them, the scale needs to be right.
More updates as time allows.
