Barbie House

I gave the Barbie house that I have been working on for some time now to my grand daughter Chloe for Christmas.... (click on photos to make them larger)
The Barbie house started off looking like this, it was a $5.00 score at a yard sale....
 
I added hard wood floors to the top two floors and a brick floor to the bottom floor. I also gave the "house" a new exterior with a textured finish and the stones... and of course, I made two wooden doors too...

 Here is the bottom/first floor of the Barbie house, the living room....

 and the other side of the room...

 The second floor has the kitchen....
and the dining area....

The top floor is the bedroom area....
and of course the all important computer area....

Here is a list of blog posts which I've previously shared along with way of making this Barbie house. Some are tutorials and some I'm just sharing how I transformed things into Barbie Furniture:
Wicker Furniture, Shabby Chic Bedroom Furniture, Barbie Kitchen, Hutch, Wood planed Floor, Standing Bird Cage, Faux Brick Floor, Three tiered table, Cottage Doors, Faux Stones, Barbie House, Christmas Tree, Couch and Chair, Dress Form,
big hugs,

Oh, this brings back memories of the Barbie house my stepdad made me for Christmas one year. It was really just a one room wooden box, but my mother had decorated it with pink contact paper and little curtains. It had wicker furniture, and I LOVED it!
You did an amazing job!!

If Chloe didn't do dances and prances around the house, I would break into tears. That is simply amazing -- what a gift!
