For this dollhouse, I wanted to create something cozy and romantic. I had this idea of making an old exterior with an opulent interior you wouldn't expect. I wanted something very feminine and Marie Antoinette's style jumped right out!

So here it is! This is a small barn. It's a hideaway for a queen. IIt started out as a Greenleaf kit called "Annie's Lobster shack." I made changes to all the windows, added a dormer, fireplace, chimney, and hinged doors making this a unique, custom piece no one else will have.

This barn the perfect size to fit anywhere. And it has a battery operated LED light with a hidden switch and hidden battery.

The interior: Everything is handmade! I started with a French panel wall where the fireplace is. Added the fireplace, a handpainted cake in a gold metal frame, and a box of macaroons(I even made the box myself).
There is a one of a kind working chandelier with one bulb in the middle for a true dim candle light look.
The doors are paneled and painted with gold.
The curtains are silk taffeta with gold trim. The rug is handpainted heavy duck cotton in the Aubusson style.
I printed out Fragonard's "The Swing" and papered the room with it. There is hand painted molding running all along the top. A sky mural I hand painted on the ceiling and a gold molding panel above the window.

The exterior: I used cardboard siding and shingles in an effort to make the house a little lighter. The rocks are faux, all carved out by hand. Everything was hand painted and aged. I added moss and paper roses I made. The windows are plastic. The door knobs are hand crafted metal.
