Dollhouse Couch, Taxidermy, and Wood Beams

I'm back with another dollhouse update!

I've started in the living room as you saw with my last post, How to Make a Fireplace for Your Dollhouse.

Today I'm sharing the wood ceiling beams, taxidermy, and boho couch that I've added to the room!

After I made the rustic fireplace I wanted to add some rustic beams to the ceiling.

I used a square dowel and cut it into lengths that would fit on the living room ceiling. I beat them up a little with the edge of my scissors to make them look like realistic beams and then stained them dark brown. The beams are attached with wood glue.

Next, I wanted some taxidermy to hang on the wall!

I picked up this toy deer at Fred Meyer.

And I cut his head off with a hand saw.

Then I painted a little square of wood brown and glued the head to it! I hung it on the wall with poster tack.

My final project for today's living room update is a little boho couch I made.

I loosely followed this Youtube tutorial from The Square to Spare. I left off the arms on mine.

I made the couch just slightly smaller than the one she made in the video and I used some vintage green velvet scraps I had to cover the couch.

I used some more square dowel to make the base.

This is what the base for my couch looked like after following the tutorial but I didn't like it after I attached the couch to it... it was too tall.

So, I switched the dowel legs for little bead bun feet!

Then I made some tiny cushions for the couch.

They were simple to make and I made three green velvet cushions to go across the back of the couch.

I decided that was too boring though so I made some little floral pillows to tie in the pink bun feet instead!

I made them look like down pillows with the "karate chop" dent in the top by sewing a tiny stitch in the center!

I'm pretty happy with it... it is not to scale (a tiny bit large) but I think lowering the base with the bun feet and leaving off the arms makes it seem smaller... it's an oversize couch like we all like to cuddle up on!😊

Next, I'm brainstorming ideas for a coffee table! I'd like to squeeze in a chair of some sort too!
