Laney gets her dollhouse bookcase

Hello blog world friends! Another month has passed and I am finally getting around to post. I've been busy with life in general, oh and reading everyone elses' blogs. :)
We finally completed the much anticipated dollhouse bookcase. You may recall I've talked about this 'infamous' bookcase several times over the past few months and after what seems like forever it's finally complete. Handsome Hubby built this from a PDF format plans I bought on eBay for around 4.oo. I know you can buy one similar at Target but it I didn't like that you could see the screws on it plus it was a bit less expensive to do it this way.

Dollhouse bookcase in progress...

and now completed!

I'd like to decorate it a bit differently but for now I just threw these things in it to dress it up. If you've got a keen eye you may notice the Strawberry Shortcake doll and horse. Oh I wish you could smell them! Yummy! I was a HUGE fan of Strawberry Shortcake so of course Santa had to make a point to bring Laney her own this year. (Even though she's nowhere close to being able to play with them!) :)

The cute little green chair is a 1.00 junk store find that I painted. So cute!

do you still have the name of who you bought the plans from from the dollhouse or any chance you would share the plans?

I second Jennifer's question! :)

I'd be glad to pay you for the PDF file...I can't find your seller on ebay. Or if you have contact information for him ,that would be appreciated too! My husband wants to build one for our grandaughter's 2nd birthday next month so I hope you can help.

Many thanks!
