Hello everyone its Cheryl!

Today I would like to share how I found in the burn pile at Tower Hill Stables an abandoned doll house that someone at the farm threw away. Unfinished! I wasn't sure if I could do anything with it, but the more I looked at it, I decided to make a Beach House for my granddaughter.


UnfinishedI started to see I could do something with it!This is what it looked like when I picked it up!


This is what it looked like when I brought it home and clearing it up
 I started to picture if I lived there what would I want to see.  

I jumped in and started this FUN,FUN, project.

Taking one room at a time. I started in the living room, I started making the chairs and table and then I build to fireplace. I was really getting into this project. I even made a small sail boat to put on the mantel.

Then I painted the house tan and builded stone wall for the front of the house. I decided to make the front room into a Bait Shop for JOJO, so I named it Jojo’s Bait Shop.

I had so much fun looking on line for pictures and signs to put on the wall, in to bait shop. I LOVED that I found old signs of “Lake Geneva” since I grew up around they, and added them to the walls.

Then I started in the bedroom, I was able to pick up some fabric from Wal-mart for .98 and some paint Acapulco, so this whole project only cost me $5.00 to transform into this Beautiful Bait Shop, Beach home for my granddaughter.
