Do you have any childhood toys that your kids now play with? I have quite a few, some homemade (mostly wood things) and some bought, like ALL my barbies! My parents built this log doll house for my when I was 7 and it’s a beauty! Yes, all those logs were peeled by hand, my dad is quite the wood worker!! It is built like a rock, and is heavy like one too! Although it didn’t need any work structurally, I was feeling a change from that green shag carpet! This past Christmas holiday my daughter, husband and I all chipped in to renovated it! It’s always amazing what some fresh paint can do! 

The rest is pretty self explanatory, so here are the before and after photos, including this oldie from when I received the doll house for Christmas!
