Type of Wood
Finish Used
white paint, floors were stained with oil based stain in black cherry and finished with gloss. Used spraypaint for stairs and roof. Took me a long time, just had a baby and also have a 3 year old, so spent a little bit of time every day to work on it. took me about 2 weeks to make it, it was a lot of work since it was my first time!! It was worth it, my daughter loves it. Furniture and dolls were a gift from grandma and grandpa!!

It must have felt so satisfying to complete this project for your daughter and to know years from now that it will last and you'll know that you had built it. Although projects take time, I enjoy that once they are done, you have a functional piece of furniture that you could use over a lifetime. Like the birth of a new child, I nearly forget the labor once I see the finished piece.
