Build your own two story dollhouse for 18" or American Girl dolls. This is a more compact size that is easier to reach inside rooms. The free plans are available at our sister site Shelf Help here.
This is what I give you. A rough plan, one of my very first, of one of my very favorite pieces. Something about being tall and slim, but functional, with shelving at eye height, makes this particular sized bookshef an instant favorite. I've made more than a few of this design . . . but NONE of them looked like this . . . And this is what you build!
I would never have dreamed that we could bring a wine cabinet and hutch, solid wood, to a wedding as a gift for friends, before I learned building is easy. We went to a Halloween Party at our friends Ross and Brandy's new house, and took this picture of the wine cabinet I made them for their wedding. I am really happy with how it turned out, the picture is not the best, and I hope you can see how nice this piece turned out. I actually did a double take when I saw it!
