Dollhouse toilet

So, I got really excited, unnaturally excited, to tell the truth, about making this toilet for my dollhouse.  I've been thinking about it for a long time, gathering my materials, doing research etc.  Suffered a MAJOR, soul-crushing set-back when I LOST my tic tac container...  And the search for the perfect lid seemed to have evaded me, until just as I was starting to build one out of an old credit card and modge podge, what do I see but the lid of my vinegar, which was absolutely perfect.

And that's why you should really never throw lids away, ever.  

There she is - quite simple, really.  I just put white paper in the tic tac thing and hot glued the whole thing together.  But it really looks like a loo, right?  Note my iPhone tub - still looking for the perfect feet.  Occurred to me that I could made some out of sculpy.  Oh, fu' me... I just had a genius idea:  I could get a little lion toy and cut off it's feet and paint them white.  If you have a lion toy, I need to talk to you immediately.

I don't think I've mentioned that I'm working on this dollhouse... I've been wanting to make one for many many years and I finally just got my supplies together and started a very simple one.  It's made from a wooden wine box, which your local liqueur store might give to you if you ask nicely, and I put in one floor and a wall.  I'm trying to make it completely out of house-hold stuff instead of buying pre-made furniture and stuff.

Here's a little nightstand I made out of two matchboxes and some pushpins.

Adorbs, right?  I don't mind telling you that the whole things is just about the cutest thing you've ever seen. 

Tonight I have finished the coup d'grace, which is not to say that the whole house is finished but that I have finally completed the toilet, which I have been working on in my mind for I hate to tell you how long.  Come back tomorrow for a picture of that, I swear to you, you will not be disappointed.  (:

Oh, I have a nice Pinterest board on Dollhouses if you love tiny houses as much as I do.
