customizing a dolls house for my Sylvanian family


Hi all,
I have 3 wooden dolls houses and 2 Gypsy caravans, all are 12th scale.
I have just ordered 2 smaller 12th scale dolls houses to customize for two of my Sylvanian families. They can be easily altered being made of wood , painted, papered, dividing walls made etc. I will let you know how I get on with this project. I shall be using Sylvanian furniture inside rather than making my own (as with all my other houses)and I look forward to starting on it!

Regards.

I'm really looking forward for your project. From what I have seen in your site I'm sure the result is going to be very good. It would be interesting though to use some non sylvanian furniture and accessories. You're unique in making these and it'll be something out of the ordinary! emoticon

Ooh, it will be awesome to see your houses. Please consider making the furniture yourself, it would be so exciting to see it. I make some furniture myself, and it would be fun to see your results emoticon

Re: customizing a dolls house for my Sylvanian family


Thanks to you all!
There will be some items I make myself! One will be a swinging 2 seater bench in the porch of the first house I work on.
I will take progress photos and tutorials of anything I make on my website. You may be able to try making them yourselves.

I will take a photo of the property when it arrives! I have ordered 2 both the same but they will end up different!

Regards................

Re: customizing a dolls house for my Sylvanian family


Here are a couple of photos of my house that arrived [sign in to see URL] 2 rooms will be made into 4 and other changes will be done [sign in to see URL] pediment on the porch will be removed soon too! As the floors are scored I shall be varnishing them to look like floorboards. Beams will be put on the walls to give it a rustic look inside.

Patty, you have inspired me to try my hand at my dollhouse project that sits on top of my closet at this stage... I have a 1:12 scale dollhouse that I want to convert, but have never yet had the courage to start!
I think I shall watch your progress and start in 2014. emoticon
