There are so many pieces of miniature furniture
available for your doll house you will probably find it difficult
to choose the pieces you want. When collecting doll houses there
seems to be three types of collectors; hand made collectors, Anything
goes collectors and DIY collectors.
made collectors only collect miniature furniture hand made by
artisans. These pieces are usually highly detailed like this writing
desk. Hand made items take a long time to make and a lot of work
goes into them. They are usually quite expensive because of the
time and effort put into each piece.
DIY collectors are those who make every item for
their doll house themselves. If you like craft work this is often
the most fun way to decorate your doll house. You can custom make
each piece to suit your room. You don't even have to be that skilled
to make miniature furniture many collectors make pieces from things
they have lying around the house and would otherwise throw away.
"Anything goes" collectors purchase miniatures
from stores, may have a few well chosen artisan made pieces in
their doll houses and they also make some items themselves. This
is the easiest way to start out. Purchase those essentials and
try and make some custom items to make your doll house unique.
