Ask Paw Paw and you shall receive...



I decided Tori needed a bookshelf. I keep her books all over the house and in her closet. I started looking a couple of months ago, but never found anything I loved. I finally found a dollhouse/bookshelf on the internet for $650 and decided to ask Paw Paw if he would make it when he had time to work on another project. For those of you who know my dad, know that he is always working on something. Well, I asked and he delivered...literally. Within one week Tori had a new dollhouse/bookshelf delivered to our door. I love how it turned out. I know that for now Tori will have fun pulling all the books off the shelf and eventually we will turn it into a dollhouse.

Here is a picture of the one on the internet.




I think she likes it!!
I am the worst person at decorating shelves. I will have to get some help, but this is what they look like for now.
She decided she needed to help paint when she wasn't cleaning the floors with the paint brush.
Paw Paw hard at work!
He even put in windows with glass and added the fence for the finishing touches. THANKS PAW PAW!! WE WILL CHERISH IT FOREVER!!

OH that is awesome!!! I love it and it makes Tori look so tiny!!
Adalie has a dollhouse bookshelf similar but not as well made, I'm sure!! It is just the perfect size for her to get to her books.

I love her bookcase! Your dad did a great job. Don't you love having a dad that can do about anything. I hope Tori is feeling better!

Very impressive! I wish y'all lived closer so I could hire him to make Maggie a few things! I agree with Kelly that it is even better than the internet one!
