Dollhouse Series
Bathroom: Medicine Chest


Welcome to my dollhouse series tutorials! This is the bathroom section of tutorials.

This tutorial will show you how to make the medicine chest (there over the sink). This one's really quick and easy. All of the other items in the bathroom can be found on the main dollhouse tutorial page, which you will find here. If you haven't already done so, please go there and orient yourself to the dollhouse tutorials, and for important information you'll need to complete the series.

Once you complete the bathroom, and all the other rooms, you'll assemble them all into the completed dollhouse.

Please read my Terms of Use before completing these tutorials.

This tutorial was written for Paint Shop Pro versions 9 and 7.04

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 9, and have made comments as appropriate for PSP 7 users. I didn't test it in PSP8, but you shoud be able to complete the tutorial in that version as well. You may download the latest PSP version demo here.

Step 1. Open up a new image 200 x 200, white background.

Step 2. Set your foreground to color #7c908a, background to #c0c0c0. Choose your preset shapes tool>rectangle, using the settings in the screenshot.

Draw a rectangle approximately 70 x 60 (watch the numbers at the bottom of your screen.


Step 3. Add a new layer. Change your background to null. Choose your pen tool>draw lines and polylines (size 3) and draw a line down the center of your rectangle.

Step 4. Add a new layer. Set foreground color to #d7cece, background to #f3f6f4. Now choose your foreground and background to gradient. Click on the "current gradient" box and navigate to the "#1 Foreground-Background" gradient. Set the style to linear, angle 90, repeats 0)

Draw a rectangle for your mirror. Duplicate this layer and mirror it. Place on the other side of your chest.

Step 5. And that's all there is to it. Now delete the color chart and background layers. Merge visible layers. Save as a PSP file.

What to do next

Now continue on through the bathroom tutorials, in order (go here to find the tutorials index, and scroll down to the bathroom section to find the others). Once you have all of the items in the bathroom section complete, then go here to assemble it.

Have fun!
