On the upper floor, directly above the kitchen, we find Barbie's bedroom. Adorned with a crystal chandelier, bright bedding and an uber-chic dresser, she is sleeping in style.
Near enough that I want to share it with you! I can't wait one more day.
Introducing: Barbie's Dreamhouse, Collette Edition.
Let's take a tour, shall we?
First up is the family room on the bottom floor. This is where conversation happens and friendships are made! Nothing is more comforting at the end of a long day than a chocolate suede couch with vibrant pillows and fresh flowers. After the stone fireplace is installed, the winter months will be warm and cozy.
Adjacent to the family room is the kitchen, still awaiting the perfect dining table. With a modern sink and a fully stocked mini-fridge, this is the perfect stop for dinner-making. Barbie plans on having fresh curtains installed over the window for the ultimate window view.
Barbie is, of course, always working on her appearance and needs the hygiene to match. With a small tub and modern sink, cleaning is a breeze. Custom sized towels on a crystal towel hook and a blue-edged bath mat tie the bathroom together.
Thank you for joining us for Barbie's Dreamhouse: Collette Edition home tour! Please come again!
But, as you can see, some things still need finishing. I need to add scrapbook paper to the bathroom sink pedestal and the kitchen cabinet, I have a frame for the mirror over the fireplace mantel, and I have little stones to glue on to make a fireplace. I also want to find more wall art. I'm thinking I'll look at scrapbook paper again and figure out some way to frame it. The ottoman is going to be upholstered, and a flag banner will probably hang in Barbie's bedroom. I have probably spent... oh, $10 on this thing. Not too shabby, wouldn't you say?
It will be so. totally. awesome.
So far, the munchkin just has her barbies sleeping all over the house. She has a mini barbie who sleeps in the bathtub. They sleep on the couch, dresser, kitchen cupboards... everywhere. The bed too, don't worry. :) But her favorite thing in the whole house is the picture of Neuschwanstein I have hanging over the couch. I figured a castle was appropriate art. Now the munchkin begs to go there every day. Tell me about it sister, I'd love to take you.
And if I wasn't excited enough about the dreamhouse, the fact that I am being featured today at Sew It To Me just puts me at the top of cloud nine. You can see the feature here. Leave them some comment love! I've found lots of new sewing blogs thanks to these gals!
Hope your Monday is as happy as mine.
