Home Made

Transform an old dollhouse into a beautiful holiday vignette.



A snowy dollhouse makes a magical holiday focal point. Refurbish an old dollhouse that could use some sprucing up, or finish a doll house made of raw wood. Both will look fantastic after a fresh coat of paint applied with a Flexio sprayer and SMART Edge Roller.


Prep the dollhouse

Cover any areas, like windows, that you do not want covered with paint

Prime the dollhouse

If your dollhouse comes in a raw wood finish, spray on Zinsser 1-2-3 primer before spraying with the latex paint.

**Pro tip: Make sure to use cup liners to make switching paints a breeze.**
