KITCHENS - Using a Barbie Kitchen In Your Dollhouse - WORKS GREAT!

Hello everybody!
Sorry about my absence.
My eyes are still a little blurry.
For some reason these words look very big to me.
I am not sure that they are suppose to look like this.
But that's a good thing because the little words kill my eyes.
Back in July when I was doing my thrifting I came across
2 dollhouses.
First I will talk about this one. As you can see
its plastic. Yuk!
I detest that stuff. 
But look what this Barbie dollhouse
offered me.
Of course I do not want the dollhouse.
It cost only $8.00 but this little kitchen
was a steal for that price!!
It will look good in one of my apartments.
It is just the right size too!
I do have plans of painting it and when I do it will be
with the same colors as I like the shabbiness of it.
 The little pink tiled floor an also be used.
You can paint it!
Click-click to see it better.
Its still a little dirty because I have not
had the time to clean it yet.
But I have started already demolishing the dollhouse.
 Obviously there are some shelves inside that are missing.
But I can make shelves so that's not a problem.
 And as you can see all the doors open and close properly
with no problems.
 Here's what the outside of the dollhouse looks like.
Back in July I searched the internet for this dollhouse
and I couldn't find it. Apparently it is an old one.
See the little bathroom on the second floor - top left.
 I am also gonna save and use
that as well. I am not sure if you will be able to see
it or not - but the tile on the floor is yellow.
Too matchy-matchy for me. 
Beside the yellow toilet is a pink
bookcase that I am gonna try to save.
The toilet seat is pink - good thing it wasn't lost.
 The front door even works.  It is a very nice door.
Needs a window pane.
 What a cute little porch. Wish I could use some
of that porch stuff on my dollhouse.
 This was suppose to be a little seat. Kind of cold isn't
it. Apparently there were pictures on the wall. Maybe
I can use this also.
 This is a better photo of the tile and the little kitchenette
from the side.
 I don't think that I will be able to use the stairs. That's
a shame because of the cute storage area underneath.
What I really wanted anyway was the kitchenette.
I hope that you were hitting the thrift stores this
past summer while I was away. 
I do want to tell you that my eyes are not completely healed
so I when I visit your blogs - I might not be able to read any
of it to comment. Just be patient with me.
Many thanks for stopping by!
Many hugs,
