All About the Cube Cubby

This is sort of a “making of” post on the process that went into creating the Cube Cubby. As simple the bookcase/storage unit seems, it took about a year to figure it out, only because I was testing a variety of methods to make them in the level of detail I wanted under a certain […]

One of the things I’ve started doing after picking up my dollhouse obsession is browsing through various online shops for furniture or room decor for inspiration. The folder now has over 200 images in it! The picture above is a life sized bed room set. It’s called Milano Chocolate set, which is fitting because it […]
