Today’s project is from a recent thrift haul!
I found this at Goodwill for $9.99. It was a little more than I wanted to pay for it but I ended up getting it. I loved it because it reminds me of a dollhouse. I do believe it is a shelf because of the hanging hardware in the back.
I also found this frame at Goodwill from another trip I had made. It think it will go perfect with this dollhouse.
While the colors are not bad, it is not my style. What can I say, I love white. It just makes me happy and lifts my mood.
Take The Frame Apart
I used our chop saw to cut each corner of the frame. Clean everything real well. After cutting the frome, choose two sides of the frame that fit the best for your dollhouse, in my case it was the two longer sides. Apply wood glue or E6000 and a few dots of hot glue down the sides and then apply the frame pieces to the dollhouse. It will adhere pretty fast because of the hot glue. Now it looks more like a roof.
Tip: By applying the hot glue with the E6000, you don’t have to prop the frame up.
I let mine sit overnight before painting! You can paint right away if you applied hot glue to it but I was in no hurry. Once dried, apply two or three coats of paint to your project. I used three coats total of Falling Snow by Behr.
After the paint was dried, I used a couple of leftover scraps of transfers.
Tip: Let your paint dry overnight if applying transfers, otherwise they may not come off their backing very well.
I think transfers elevate a project and use them where I can.
You’re done! Easy Peasy! It has picture hangers on the back to hang or you could add feet to the bottom depending on the look you’re going for and where you want to place it. So fun!
I love the seagull I bought at the coast! It doesn’t say but I think it is made from driftwood!
