Brookhaven: a refined dollhouse overrun by wild bears

Been working so hard painting furniture and cutting stair railings I didn't notice some bears had moved in on the place. Have no idea how I'll ever get them to leave. Great part is they're not that picky and don't care that the place isn't "done."
One of the little ones plays the piano and the others like to lounge around and listen. At least the room has light now...and a sofa.
Did a divider in bathroom so that the front section can be a dressing room. Armoire to come.
Kitchen now has light and a copper oven hood I made from cardboard and copper sheeting.

Miniature felt Pea Coat in mustard

Made a pea coat! Will post a tutorial if there is interest. Let me know :)

Miniature apple green desk for the dollhouse craft room

Just painted this desk. It was stained wood before. Did 4 coats of Soft Apple & 1 coat varnish. I also painted the bookcase on the right and added freshwater pearl handles.
Still haven't done the floor - but it's the last one without a covering! And must do something about the crazy attic window.
