Now on to the reveal. Here is a before shot of this space:
I started by priming the whole room (it was unpainted plywood when we purchased it at a yard sale a few years ago), then painted the back wall and ceiling in "Seaside Villa" chalk paint* - the same as the outside of the house. (Full source list at the end of the post)
The floor is actually scrapbook paper as well. Each sheet was ombre from light to dark pink, so I had to use two and glue them together. Hazel LOVES anything pink, so I knew she would love pink floors in this room.
kitchen and living room. Even though this room probably deserved a more decorative crown molding, I decided to keep the trim the same throughout the house.
The ceiling was adorned with a gold spray painted craft medallion and a battery operated chandelier from Miniatures.com.
The dollhouse's dollhouse got a wee facelift also. It originally had a bright red door which just didn't "go" in this space, so I painted it the same color chalk paint as the walls and used a gray Sharpie to emphasize the doorknob.here). I painted it in the same chalk paint, sealed it and done.

I found a couple of gold frames at a sale awhile ago with traditional art prints in them. I took the image out of this one and replaced it with a cut out from the same scrapbook pad as the flooring. I thought it was fitting when I was working on it for Hazel...so she knows she is treasured.
I made all of the bedding using scrap fabric and trim. The butterfly was a small appliqué we both decided just looked perfect in the middle.
The rug is a vintage doily and the antique porcelain doll was given to Hazel by my mom.
I have no idea where the plastic horse came from...just something Hazel had!
The baby doll (that I have had since I was little) got coordinating bedding for the vintage brass crib.
I still have a ways to go to get the whole house done (5 rooms left!), but three rooms are finished thanks to this challenge! I hope I can keep the motivation on my own to get the rest of the rooms done as well as the exterior. I will post each room as it is finished in the future.
