I see these all the time on F.B. Marketplace and always thought they were so beautiful. It was not though until I saw a miniature artist on Instagram redo a vintage radio did I feel like I could tackle this project.

After viewing lots of radios online and not seeing any in my area or in the price range I wanted. I finally came across this beauty for only $20. So I snapped it up know know if it would work or not.
Taking the speaker section out of the bottom.
This is the idea I have for the front faced of the Radio Dollhouse. I have all the windows and door already and wanted to use up stock that I had. The roof will be made by using scraps and cardboard. I plan to put 3 floors into the back but time will tell if this happens. I would also love to put lighting into it as it has a fun switch on the side of the radio that would be fun to use. Not sure if my electrical skills are quite up to this task.
All for now, I will be doing updates on my progress and also taking video to share on my YouTube.
