A New Project - The Arthur!

Before...



And after...


I really don´t know how this happend, but I do now have a new project called "The Arthur"! It is an dollhouse from Green Leaf , I found it on the swedish e-bay and couldn´t resist to give a bid...
And today I picked it up in the city an hour trip by car from where I live.
The sweet girl who sold it, did already all the hard work gluing it together and finished the boring work with the tiles... I have now painted it with white colour and inside at the ceilings. I just need to add a new floor at the porch and maybe put stone (egg carton) at the ground.
I do really found a great renovation project and I love it!
Tomorrow the fun work will start, select wallpaper, colours, shades and interior style...
What style should I choose, a romantic, rustic,  american folk art, french shabby chic or modern?
I beleive I have to think for a few days before I decide what I create.
I promise I will show more pics soon!

So pleased I chanced upon your blog! I also have the Arthur and several years ago had largely finished it in victorian style. It has been in storage and I have just retrieved it - and it now needs totally re-doing apart from the basic carcase. This time my taste has changed and I plan to do it in shabby chic so I am particularly interested in watching your progress with your Arthur.
