New Wood floor

I added some wood floors to the Barbie house I've been working on.I drew guidelines along the floor and used elmers glue to adhere thin wood strips to the floor of the barbie house. Once it was all glued in place, I sanded it and applied a stain to the wood. Once the stain was dry, I sanded the wood floor again giving the floor an old worn look. I then added a clear semi-gloss finish to the newly stained wood floor. I added two levels of wood floors, the bottom level is brick.Now, I'm working on making a fireplace.Barbie is hoping to move into her new home sometime in June...

Wow! Can I move in first? Ha! I love those wood floors. If only it were so easy to install the real thing in a full sized home. Barbie is one lucky gal. Best wishes, Tammy

I found a large doll house in need of work at the goodwill last time I was there. I didn't buy it and I'm still kicking myself.


I know that if there was a young girl in our family I would have said it was for her even though I'd really buy it for me. LOL! Yeah I'm still a kid at heart.

Where did you find the wood strips? I would love to do this on a Barbie house I'm building for my daughter for Christmas!
