Mya's Dollhouse

I eliminated the bottom floor and created a shorter storage area instead. To make the project more manageable for one person, I chose 1/2" birch plywood, however, I think 5/8" would have been a bit more sturdy for this project. I love the plans and found them very easy to customize to fit my project.

Estimated Cost
$150-$200
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
1/2" birch plywood and several 1 X 2's I had left over from other projects
Finish Used
Benjamin Moore Advance in Winter Grey (Exterior)
Benjamin Moore Advance in Decorator White (Interior and trim)
Minwax Dark Walnut wood stain (Floors)
Varathane interior polyurethane in Gloss to finish entire project.

I used the HomeRight HVLP sprayer to finish all the pieces (Except the stain) prior to assembly.
I also stained the floors prior to assembly simply using a wipe on stain. All the plywood edges were finished off with a white melamine iron on edge band.
The BM advance paints and Homeright sprayer are my absolute favorite combination for any furniture project.
