Barbie Doll House

We made my grand daughter a Barbie house for Christmas. Her grandpa bought a sheet of 1/2" plywood and made each floor 13" high and it was 36" wide. I sanded the wood and painted it all white. I decoupaged some paper rugs onto the floor and some paper trim around the top.The paper will wrinkle and it looks terrible but when it completly dries it will smooth out. I bought some doll house windows at Hobby Lobby, painted them pink and placed a photo behind them then secured them to the walls. I didn't find doors that were tall enought so I bought two photo frames that had 3 x 3 photo openings, painted it pink and placed a 8 x 10 picture of my house behind the doors, I added 2 beads for door knobs. I bought some furniture and made the bed and lounge chair in the bedroom. I took an oval decoupaged box and made a back rest, covered it with white vinyl and hid the imperfections with trim and a pink boa. She was so excited she just kept jumping up & down.
