Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Vintage Cupcake, Vanilla Frosting, and Tough Coat to give this dollhouse new life!

Hello painters!

My favourite pieces to work on in the shop (aside from dressers!) are children’s pieces. When a good customer of mine asked me to paint this dollhouse turned bookshelf for her daughter’s room, I was happy to do it! She wanted pink and something fun, so that’s what we did!

It was a fairly simple paint job, with big results. The dollhouse was a dingy white, with pen and marker all over it, but a vintage piece in good structural condition. I painted the outside and trim in Vintage Cupcake and the interior with Vanilla Frosting. I did two coats of each colour.

Children’s pieces tend to get a little more wear than other pieces, so I gave the entire piece (including the papered back) two coats of Tough Coat.

This little bookshelf is too sweet! It was a great way to repurpose a piece that was once a toy into something useful for a little girl’s room! It’s always amazing what a little paint can do!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
