Almost finished!

 I am so pleased with how the exterior of the baby house cabinet turned out after aging and painting the knobs. It's just the right amount of shabby elegance.
 Other than the cabinet, I didn't purchase anything new for this project. The living room wallpaper is a sample of 1:1 scale striped wallpaper turned on its side. The sofa, chair and end table are toys rescued and refinished from my MIL's attic. The rug is a coaster. The console table was made with miscellaneous scraps and all the artwork came from a mini magazine's cutout page. I "framed" them by layering them on brown flocked paper. The window is a leftover door from a bashed Michael's hutch with parchment paper drapes and the door and frame were cut from cardboard with panels made from the parchment. Even with the dark floor and door the room seems airy and feminine without going over the top with it.
 The welcoming pineapple over the door is a vintage plastic embellishment. The flowers are just silk flower stamens and the silver bowl is a jewelry finding.
 The bedroom is over the top feminine with its shades of rose on walls, window, bed and nightstand. This wallpaper is actual dollhouse paper. I made and dressed the bed. The nightstand is just a block of wood.
The vanity was rescued along with the living room furniture but I refurbished it a bit with a new mirror and gold accenting the trim. I made the stool, lamps, jars, etc.

I think I need at least a pet to give the rooms life but it is otherwise complete, I think. This was a fun project and was small enough to have the satisfaction of completing it quickly. Can't wait to hear what you all think!

Thank you all so much! I knew when I saw the cabinet on the shelf at the thrift store that it would be going home with me. :-) It means a lot that you think it's pretty, too.
