Mountfield: Bathroom

Building the Mountfield Doll House

So far I've planned out the living room, dining room, and the kitchen. This week I'm looking at the bathroom. There are some really cool vintage bathroom sets out there, but the problem is that most doll houses at the time were in the Lundby 1:18 scale as opposed to the standard 1:12. Just to make life that little bit more difficult!

Bathroom Suite. I've got an art deco style set which I'm planning on painting avocado, and swapping out the taps to the regular double rather than a mixer.

The only thing left to decide on is the small matter of flooring and wall covering... (Any suggestions much appreciated!) It's a good job it'll be a while before I start on this room!

  1. Oh my goodness I cannot believe little things you can get for doll's houses! We got a doll's house for Aria on one of the local selling sites for an absolute steal which I want to do up for either her birthday or Christmas

    1. Aw, thank you! I love those plastic bath shelves - I keep thinking I could do with one of them on my actual bath, let alone my miniature one! x

  5. Oooh the bath mats are the best! And the tiny shelves. .. and...all of it! ;P

    Where do you get the components? Off ebay? Or are there shops for it?

    I have an amazing vintage dollhouse set (the insides, no actual house) that a Grandmotherly person (not an actual Grandma, a friend of our family... ahahaha so many parentheses...) gave me as a child - it's packed away but this is soo making me want to get it out and do up an actual dollhouse for it...

    1. Do it! Hehe, seriously, it is such an addictive hobby, especially as you can get so many cool little bits and pieces these days. My favourite doll house stores at the moment at Dolls House Mall, Elf Miniatures, and Etsy - there is loads on there. x
