I love this part!

The part that involves filling in all the last details that make a dollhouse look like a home, that is. I built this little upholstered bench with leftover bits from the Brimble, some gingerbread trim and a bit of ribbon.
The coat rack now has a purpose in the foyer with a fedora and an umbrella hanging from it. The hat was cut down from a plastic flocked cowboy hat. I colored it black and added a band and feather accent. The umbrella started as a toy but the handle wasn't long enough. I lengthened it with a toothpick, painted everything and added an umbrella cut from a gray plastic bag.

It's all those little details that really make it look like a real house.
